Barry Bonds

Left fielder Barry Bonds played major league baseball for twenty-two seasons, holding the record for most career home runs, but he was never well-liked by his teammates. When he started his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, beat writers called him MDP, for “most despised player.” “I never saw a teammate care about him,” said his college baseball coach. In 2011 he was convicted of obstruction of justice over his grand jury testimony, part of a federal investigation into steroid use in baseball; the conviction was overturned by an appeals court in 2015.
