NEW YORK (AP) -- Barry Bonds isn't ready to retire. He wants to
play this year.
Baseball's home run king tells MLB.com he's been working out and -- quote -- "if my phone rings, it rings. If it don't, it don't." He goes on to say, "I have a cell phone. I have a Blackberry. They work. If something comes up, I'm sure they'll let me know."
Bonds says he'll come back in July if he has to, but it depends on the circumstances.
The 43-year-old Bonds was indicted in November on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice stemming from a 2003 grand jury testimony in which he denied knowingly using illegal performance-enhancing drugs. He pleaded innocent.
Bonds says he wants to keep trying to win a championship until there's nothing left inside of him.
