It's not often we get to write about Barry Bonds in a positive light, but here you go: the former San Francisco Giants star has donated to pay for the college educations of Bryan Stow's two young children, according to family attorney Thomas Girardi. Bonds also visited Stow in the hospital on April 22, leaving autographs for Stow's kids, according to NBC Bay Area.
The Giants organization as a whole has shown concern for Stow and his family, with pitcher Tim Lincecum donating $25,000, among others.
Bonds long ago appeared to stop caring what people think of him, but he has seemed to hold a connection to San Francisco and its fans. To me, at least. Can't really call this anything but a great gesture.
