Barry Bonds is headed back to McCovey Cove.
MLB's all-time home runs leader is re-joining the San Francisco Giants as a special advisor to CEO Larry Bear and will join the team at spring training on Wednesday.
"We are delighted to welcome Barry back home to the Giants," Baer said in a statement. "As one of the greatest players of all time, Barry's contributions to our organization are legendary."
Bonds, 52, spent the last 15 seasons of his 22-year career with the Giants and became the game's home run king during his final season in 2007. He hit 762 career homers, including 586 with San Francisco.
"I am excited to be back home with the Giants and join the team in an official capacity," Bonds said in a statement. "San Francisco has always been my home and the Giants will always be my family."
The 14-time All-Star and seven-time National League MVP also holds the record for most home runs in a single season, blasting 73 in 2001. He is a career .298 hitter with 1,996 RBIs and an MLB-record 2,558 walks.
Bonds was issued 688 intentional walks, 386 more than the next player on the list (Albert Pujols, 302).
The slugger's career was plagued by allegations of performance enhancing drug use. Bonds received 53.8 percent of the Hall of Fame vote last January, well short of the 75-percent threshold.
Bonds served as the Miami Marlins' hitting coach during the 2016 season, but was fired. Miami ranked fourth in team batting average (.263) but 27th in runs scored.
