Las Vegas Man On One-Man Bonds-Bashing Campaign

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A Las Vegas bartender is striking out at the major league baseball steroids problem by taking a swing at Barry Bonds.

Shawn Milton is currently traveling to San Francisco Giants away games on a campaign he calls the “Million Fan March,” where he protests steroids – and Bonds – by selling T-shirts styled after the Giants logo that feature the words, “cheater” and “juiced” on the front and back.

Milton donates a buck from every $19 sale to steroids education and says his 13-year-old son inspired the crusade because, in his words, “baseball is something we do together and I want him to know that you can’t cheat.”

The season is still young but Milton says he’s been mobbed at games by “baseball coaches and fans who aren’t blinded by home runs” and he’s only heard a few negative comments from Giants fans.

In fact, the response to the T-shirts has been so gratifying that Milton will soon issue a Mark McGwire-themed shirt that features the word “McLiar” and replaces the St. Louis Cardinals’ logo with vultures.
