San Francisco Giants legend Barry Bonds is adjusting to life as the Miami Marlins hitting coach. Bonds arrived in Florida on Thursday for the start of spring training, and he admitted it was a new experience.
"The first time in my career I don’t have a parking spot," Bonds told USA TODAY Sports with a laugh. "I have no idea where I’m going."
Bonds does have an idea at the plate, and there's plenty of room for improvement with his new team. The Marlins were 29th in the league last year with 613 runs and 120 home runs.
"I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t excited about the job, that’s for sure," Bonds told USA TODAY Sports. "I would not be here."
Bonds, 51, is baseball's all-time home run king with 762 big flies. The seven-time MVP and 14-time All-Star hit .312 over 15 seasons with the Giants.
