The worst kept secret in baseball hasn't quite been proved but Barry Bonds has been found guilty of obstructing justice when questioned about his long suspected steroid abuse.
The legendary batter who, once stood on top of the world by breaking Hank Aaron’s towering home run record in August 2007, was called "evasive" by jurors listening to his testimony.
Thanks to Bonds’ slippery evidence, the judge called a mistrial on the perjury counts after the jury found themselves at odds when it came to making a final verdict.
He will be sentenced for obstruction of justice on May 20th.
The San Francisco Giants legend was called as part of a BALCO drug investigation in 2003 which targeted employees of a California drug testing factory and his personal trainer Greg Anderson.
When asked if Anderson ever game him “anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with,” Bonds told the court that only his doctors touched him.
He said: “That's what keeps our friendship. You know, I am sorry, but that -- you know, that -- I was a celebrity child, not just in baseball by my own instincts. I became a celebrity child with a famous father.
"I just don't get into other people's business because of my father's situation, you see."
Jurors unanimously agreed the now ruined baseball star was dodging the question and will ultimately be charging him for it.
