GOOD SPORTS

San Francisco Giant Barry Bonds is one of baseball's best bTC players. He is also a hero to Anthony "Lee" Franklin, 14. Lee has leukemia, a form of cancer. When Barry read about Lee's illness, he visited him in the hospital. "I thought I was in a dream when Barry walked in," says Lee. Lee needed new bone marrow, which helps the body fight leukemia. So Barry started a program to find donors and match them to people with leukemia. Happily, Lee is recovering now!

(rock climbing): a fall in which a climber plummets 20 feet or more before his rope catches and saves him. Say It: "I flew past a lot of stone on the way down. That was a real screamer."
