Homerun king Barry Bonds is scheduled to be arrigned Friday, on perjury and obstruction charges.
When he shows up at the Philip Burton federal building, it will mark Bonds' first public appearance since he was indicted on November 15th.
It's an event that's expected to draw hundreds of journalists, protesters of various causes and the just plain curious.
Bonds is expected to plead not guilty in federal court to four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction.
This, after he was charged with lying to a grand jury about his performance-enhancing drug use.
If convicted, he could face more than 2 years in prison.
