SAN FRANCISCO – Likely for the last time and almost 11 years after playing his final game, Barry Bonds ran out to his old spot in his No. 25 Giants jersey.“I wanted to be in left field one more time,” Bonds said Saturday night. “And I thought it was appropriate. That’s what I wanted to do.” “I was going to put the whole uniform on, but just didn’t have time because it ran a little bit longer. I wanted to throw on everything and stand in left field one more time. That’s where everyone saw me and that’s where I thought they should see me last,” he said.Bonds had his number retired by the Giants during a long ceremony before San Francisco played his other team, the Pittsburgh Pirates – also 11 years to the month from when he broke Hank Aaron’s home run record in his 22n
