Barry Bonds is a man of the people. Not only has the former slugger taken up cycling in retirement, but he’s also giving back to the community. Bonds, who has a residence in Southern California, threw out the first pitch at Malibu Little League’s opening day last weekend, The Malibu Times reports. Bonds reportedly was there to support his godson, who, at 11, is playing Little League for the first time. “Opening Day is always going to be exciting. When I go back and think about it, that’s the one day I looked forward to. It’s the first day with everyone getting together. You have your first game; you get your first hit. It’s great. For the kids it’s awesome,” Bonds told The Times. Former shortstop Royce Clayton, who played with Bonds on the San Francisco Giants from 1993-95, was also there for opening day. He has four children who play at the league, per The Times. And how nice and charitable has Bonds become? The newspaper says he offered to take pictures with every team. You can see one below as shared by Clayton’s wife: My baby giants with 2 old giants Royce clayton and Barry bonds!

Well done again, Barry.
