Barry Bonds, branded a drugs cheat and shunned by Major League Baseball because of his links to BALCO, has returned to the San Francisco Giants as a spring training hitting coach. The face of MLB's notorious steroid era, Bonds appeared much slimmer as he entered the Scottsdale Stadium field in Arizona where the Giants are holding their pre-season training camp. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said they "welcome" Bonds back to the team but did not go into details about what Bonds' specific role would be during his one week stint.
Two US students won the right to wear breast cancer awareness wristbands bearing the slogan "I Heart Boobies" Monday after the Supreme Court dismissed a bid by a school district to ban the bracelets. The top court announced it would not hear a case sought by Easton Area Middle School, meaning that a lower court ruling last year in favor of the students will stand. The case, which triggered an outcry at the time, began in 2010 when students Brianna Hawk and Kayla Martinez were ordered not to wear the silicone wristbands, which had been sold by the Keep A Breast Foundation ahead of national Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
