Larry had actually been the messenger for the first documents in the Barry Bonds perjury case. Larry had been the first member of the public to know about the doping. He told me how reading those documents had ruined baseball for him.

I find this a bit unlikely. Then again, it might explain why he doesn't have a job as a bike messenger any more.

It's probably not a true story, but a good one. And he said it quite confidently!

He said he stopped being a bike messenger because the fax machine and policy changes around legal documents requiring original signatures

On the other hand, he could have just heard about the contents without reading them at the time, and later read them when they were publicized.

He wouldn't have been the first person to read them then (middle sentence).

It doesn't say the first person, it says "the first member of the public".
