“There’s a lot of times I want to say I’m sorry to some of the fans. You’re only strong to a point and then you get nervous,” Bonds told KGO during a 90-minute interview. “I’m kind of standoffish and stuff and you can’t really explain that. … I’m mostly gun-shy of what can happen. Once this is all over and done, whether I get lucky enough to do it or not, I’ll be able to release just a little bit of the anxiety and fear of what can happen. “You don’t want anything to happen to yourself. You don’t want anything to happen to your family.” Barry Bonds declined to elaborate Wednesday about death threats the San Francisco slugger says he is receiving. “We’re not going anywhere with that,” Bonds said while walking off the field following Wednesday’s workout at Scottsdale Stadium. The 42-year-old Bonds, 22 home runs from passing Hank Aaron’s career record of 755, told San Francisco’s KGO Radio on Tuesday that he has been receiving threats. He faced only three batters in a 12-4 loss to Colorado before manager Ozzie Guillen took him out. Jenks doesn’t expect to miss any game action. Jenks hurting Around the horn Vinny Castilla will get his first taste of managing this summer when he leads the Mexican national team at the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “That’s very exciting, man,” said the retired slugger who wants to one day manage in the major leagues. Castilla is Mexico’s career home-run leader in the majors, with 320 homers in 16 seasons with Atlanta, Colorado, Tampa Bay, Houston, Washington and San Diego. If baseball doesn’t provide a suitable career for Garrett Olson, the Baltimore Orioles pitcher has a Plan B: Finish his education at Cal Poly and earn a degree in mechanical engineering. Baseball players usually don’t dabble in technical fields, and Olson hopes it’s a long time before he picks up another text book. His immediate goal is play in the major leagues. “There are other opportunities for me,” Olson said Wednesday, “but right now baseball is No. 1.” The San Francisco Giants and right-hander Matt Cain were close to agreement Wednesday on a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year. “It’s ongoing,” said Bobby Evans, the Giants’ director of player personnel. “It’s not finalized.” Oakland Athletics outfielder Bobby Kielty needs arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will be sidelined for three-to-six weeks. Kielty, who came to camp in the best shape of his career, injured the knee Sunday during a rundown drill – and just when he was ready to get through a healthy spring training, for a change. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The seven-time NL MVP is scheduled to play his first exhibition game Friday in Scottsdale against the Milwaukee Brewers. “It’s always a concern it’s happening,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s certainly unfortunate that you have to deal with something like that. There’s always going to be some concern. We have protection.” Aaron himself, who like Bonds is black, dealt with death threats and hate mail as he approached Babe Ruth’s then-record of 714 homers. Aaron passed Ruth on April 8, 1974. White Sox closer Bobby Jenks threw nine pitches Wednesday in Chicago’s opening spring training game before being taken out against Colorado because of tightness in his right shoulder. Jenks, who led the White Sox with 41 saves last year and was an instrumental part of Chicago’s late season run to the 2005 World Series, was to be evaluated Thursday. read more

APTN NewsFamilies of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls will have a say on designing a national police task force, something the national inquiry called on the Trudeau government to develop Wednesday.The recommendation was part of the interim report released by the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous women.“It’s a recommendation that we are proposing or demanding here in this report but … the families and survivors have a say on how and who should be sitting on that task force,” said Commissioner Michele Audette.That includes having Indigenous officers on the task force.The task force would have the ability to reopen or review cold cases if the Trudeau government agrees to it.“They have questions and they desperately want answers about what happened to their lost loved ones, why investigations were stopped, why leads weren’t followed up on,” said Chief Commissioner Marion Buller.“It’s vital for their healing that they do find out.”The inquiry’s mandate doesn’t allow it to reopen cases, only refer new evidence back to police for possible investigation.“This is a problem we have been facing form the very beginning,” said Buller. “Families who are living with questions for generations they don’t fall neatly into that little box, so what we need to do is provide them with an opportunity or a venue to get the answers.”She said the inquiry has already been told of possible new evidence during hearings with families across the country. They expect to hand that over to police soon, said Buller.The inquiry is also asking the federal government for more time to complete its work as it is scheduled to wrap up next year within its current two-year mandate.They also need more money.But Buller stopped short of saying how much more time and money is needed.She did say the inquiry has spent or allocated about a third of its current budget of $53.8 million.She referred to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission having five years to look into the damage caused by Indian Residential Schools, where children were taken from their families and placed in church-run and state-funded schools for over 100 years. The last one closed in 1994.“That was a problem that was historical. Our problems that we’re looking at, or issues, are historical and ongoing,” said Buller.“Today, as we’re here in this women Indigenous women and girls are suffering violence that somehow has become normalized. That is a national tragedy.”She said it comes down to how long it’s going to take to do the inquiry right.So far, 900 people have added their names to the list to be witnesses at a hearing, including 100 just last month.“As we are gaining momentum we are gaining numbers of people who want to talk to us,” said Buller.Contact APTN National News here: [email protected] read more
The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes men’s basketball team will launch its 2012-2013 season Nov. 9 at the Carrier Classic game against Marquette. The season opener, which will be played onboard the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., will likely provide a rare experience for the Buckeyes. “It’s going to be dark, there’s definitely going to be some wind,” said junior point guard Aaron Craft. “It’s going to be fun though.” The Carrier Classic was inaugurated last year to honor America’s military. Proceeds are donated to charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project and tickets were made available for veterans and members of the armed forces. “It means a lot to our team to be invited to play in front of the military guys,” said junior forward Deshaun Thomas. “That’s what it’s all about. The stuff that they did for us, fighting over there. It’s just motivation to play for them and go out there and play our best.” To play its best, OSU will have to overcome more than just a Marquette team that Thomas called “physical,” but also an unfamiliar environment. “I mean, it’s going to be different,” said Thomas, who voiced concern about falling into the ocean while diving for a loose ball. “I’m going to try to stay away from the edge a little bit.” In all likelihood, Thomas and the Buckeyes shouldn’t worry about going overboard. Bleachers surround the basketball court and the ship is docked. Coach Thad Matta said that he thinks his team will be surprised with the environment onboard the USS Yorktown, indicating that it might not exactly meet their expectations. “I think that they’ll be shocked with what they see, the normalcy of it,” Matta said. One thing that the Buckeyes should account for in an outdoor game is wind, which could make shooting more difficult. In last year’s Carrier Classic, which saw North Carolina defeat Michigan State, 67-55, the Spartans struggled from the three-point range. MSU connected on 2-20 of their three-point attempts, while making a little more than 30 percent of their shots from the floor. Craft said that he isn’t worried about the wind, noting “anything that’s kind of out of the ordinary, or any type of adversity,” affects both teams. The junior also pointed out that the Buckeyes might have the perfect player for an outdoor game. “One thing I know is if someone can find a way to shoot the ball through the wind, it’s going to be my guy right here,” said Craft while pointing at a grinning Thomas. “He’ll find a way to put the ball in the basket.” Thomas agreed. “I can shoot through anything,” Thomas said. “You’re going to see some jumpers going in.” read more
