Bonds Signed By Bridgeport Bluefish

Feb 26, 2008

Slugger's Love of Shrimp Key to Deal

Bridgeport, CT - Tired of waiting for a call from a big-league team, Barry Bonds has signed a free-agent contract with the Bridgeport Bluefish, an independent Class A team in Bridgeport, Conn.

Salary terms weren't disclosed but Bonds reportedly was enticed by a unique bonus clause calling for free shrimp at a nearby Applebee's after every game in which he homers.
 
"I like shrimp," Barry said.
 
The Bluefish are in the Liberty Division of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, and have won the most games in league history. The team, named after a popular local Long Island Sound sport fish, has a mascot named B.B. the Bluefish.
 
“My exact initials,” observed Bonds, “this was all meant to be.”
