Barry Bonds has been ordered to meet with U.S. Probation Department officials to discuss terms of his 30-day house arrest.

On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered Bonds to meet with the officials to work out the details of his sentence after he lost his appeal of his felony conviction of obstruction of justice.

A jury convicted Bonds in 2011 and he was sentenced to home confinement, two years of probation and a $4,000 fine. The sentence was put on hold while Bonds pursued his appeal.

Now that he has lost, Major League Baseball's home run leader said he would like to immediately begin serving his sentence.

Bonds said he still plans to pursue his appeal. He could ask the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider his appeal or petition the U.S. Supreme Court.
