Shields had been banned from the clubhouse during spring
training, when baseball began cracking down on who was allowed in
clubhouses following a federal steroids probe that focuses on
Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, one of four men indicted on
charges of illegal distribution of steroids.
"I never stopped [working]," Shields said as he pulled on a
Giants windbreaker, wearing an employee badge around his neck.
Shields has frequented the clubhouse since 2000. He stretches
out the six-time NL MVP before games.
Anderson pleaded not guilty. Bonds has denied taking illegal steroids.
