Bonds set for World Classic event

Barry Bonds has agreed in principle to play for the USA in the inaugural World Baseball Classic in March.

"There are still a few details to be worked out, but he has agreed to play." said his agent Jeff Borris.

Bonds holds MLB's single-season home run record with 73 in 2001 and ranks third behind Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list.

He played in only 14 games for San Francisco in 2005 because of three knee operations and a bacterial infection.

The 16-team World Baseball Classic will feature major league players in international competition for the first time.

The countries taking part are: the USA, Cuba, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China, Puerto Rico, Panama, Mexico, Canada, the Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Australia, Italy and South Africa.
