TEMPE, Ariz., March 10 (UPI) -- Barry Bonds, in his spring training debut, got a hit, smirked at signs mocking him, laughed at boos from fans and refused to discuss anything but baseball.

Reporters hoping for a comment on allegations of steroid use in recently released excerpts from the book "Game of Shadows" got the brush-off, the New York Daily News reported.

"I don't worry about that stuff," Bonds was quoted as saying Thursday. "We can react about baseball questions or we don't have a conversation. That's my reaction.

I haven't killed anyone or anything, gone psycho."

Meanwhile, former baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent and John Dowd, who investigated the Pete Rose gambling accusations, called on Commissioner Bud Selig to hire an outside investigator to look into the allegations about Bonds.
