Person of the Day: Barry Bonds


In the new afterward to their book, Game of Shadows, Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams record that in the last 7 years Barry Bonds’ shoe size has gone from 10½ to 13. Ages 35-42, the formative years.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
