Baseball’s home run king Barry Bonds returned to the San Francisco Giants’ dugout Monday for the first time since his historic playing career drew to a close under the cloud of suspicion stemming from alleged PED usage. In the matchup with the Cubs, Bonds began his tenure as a special hitting instructor with the organization.
