Barry Bonds Reportedly Beats Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins in HR Derby at Camp

POSTED BY: Barry Bonds in NEWS

It's been nearly eight-and-a-half years since Barry Bonds last played in an MLB game, but as the Miami Marlins learned this week, baseball's all-time home run king still has plenty of pop in his bat.

According to SiriusXM's Craig Mish, Bonds—Miami's hitting coach—took on Giancarlo Stanton and other Marlins players in a home run derby at camp on Wednesday. Almost a decade after retiring, the former San Francisco Giants slugger picked up right where he left off.

Wait a second, the 51-year-old Bonds beat the Giancarlo Stanton? The same player who has 64 home runs in just 219 games the past two seasons and was the runner-up for the 2014 National League Most Valuable Player award? Apparently so.

Unfortunately, Mish was not able to get video of the derby.

Mish also tweeted about Bonds' reaction to winning the competition:

Bonds hit 762 home runs in his 22-year MLB career—and it appears as though he might be able to hit a few more if he got into the lineup this season.
