In terms of raw potential, Bonds may have more to offer than any player in the country, but scouts question his makeup and the way he has progressed in three seasons at Arizona State. “He has a world of talent, but hasn’t put it all together,” assessed one major league scouting director. “And there are some questions about his attitude,” added another. The son of former major league star Bobby Bonds, Barry can run and hit with the same kind of power his father once did. He was originally a second-round draft pick of the Giants out of nearby Serra High in San Carlos, Calif., and surprised a lot of people with his decision to attend college, where he’s struggled to keep on top of his grades and has missed valuable experience the last two summers while attending summer school. Bonds hit .360 with 11 homers, 55 RBIs and 30 stolen bases in 1984 for the Sun Devils but has missed several games this season with a knee injury.
