Bonds Steroids Heal WEB
FILE - In this April 6, 2011, file photo, Barry Bonds leaves a federal courthouse during his perjury trial in San Francisco. A federal appeals court says it will reconsider Barry Bonds' felony conviction for obstruction of justice. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday, July 1, 2014, that a special panel of 11 judges will review a 2011 jury verdict finding Major League Baseball's all-time home run leader guilty of giving evasive testimony to a grand jury investigating elite athletes' use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Barry Bonds is getting a second chance, hardly surprising because baseball is a game of second chances. Seven years after the San Francisco Giants decided his services would no longer be needed, a group of federal judges will reconsider Bonds' conviction for giving evasive testimony to a grand jury investigating the use of performance-enhancing drugs. It may not be as good as a ticket to Cooperstown, but a win by Bonds would mean he can live the rest of his days without convicted felon being written in front of his name.
