(Newser) – Disgraced slugger Barry Bonds is facing the possible end of his marriage, the New York Post reports. Elizabeth, his wife of 11½ years, filed for separation Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. Bonds, who hasn’t played baseball since 2007, recently wrote on his website that he is enjoying “having a lot of free time” with his 10-year-old daughter. His wife is seeking joint custody.
