Jim Young, the A’s media relations director, once struck out Barry Bonds while Bonds was at San Mateo’s Serra High and Young was pitching for Marin Catholic in a game on the Kentfield campus, reports Dave Albee of the Marin IJ in this profile of Young. “But I won’t tell you what he did to me in his next at bat. The ball still hasn’t come down yet,” Young said. “It landed about the 50-yard line of the football field.” Young is beginning his eighth season with the A’s and has become king of press-conference moderators in the Bay Area, Albee says.
