Steroids in baseball: the game has suffered?

It seems that Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa home run ladder to climb of all time, there are more and more speculation whether these players are apparently the steroid users. Primetime While some athletes like Jason Giambi, are starting their use of illicit substances to improve performance in case of confession, some still choose to remain in the shadows and hide their guilt. Now that is a decrease to the point where the records respecting the concerns that have comeDemand is only growing.

This leaves us with many questions about certain superstars. Take Mark McGwire as an example. During the period when he and Sammy chased Maris's record for single season home run, everyone seemed to turn the other cheek when it comes to the issue of steroids. Now, McGwire has been for 5 years (after retirement is entitled to the forthcoming elections will be Hall of Fame), many assume, the credibility of this player. McGwire hit 583 career home runs, andeach player has taken at least 500 long balls and has appeared on a ballot paper has been selected. In a recent ESPN poll of Hall of Fame voters, over 70% said that not select McGwire. Although McGwire has never admitted using steroids, he has admitted to various steroid precursors. Unfortunately, records Maris' already broken, and MLB has not much difficulty in recognizing the possibility that his players were using illegal to improve performanceSubstances. If the Commissioner Bud Selig decided that control of the situation would be to demoralize the reputation of the game is unknown. After all, the home run chase has generated a lot of revenue and to generate much publicity, and when it seemed to disturb a bad idea, with the attention received by the game can have. In both cases, there is no doubt that McGwire name will go down in history as one of the most controversial athletes.

In Part 2 of this article, I will discussothers alleged, including Sammy Sosa, Jason Giambi and Jose Canseco, and how they influenced the game. later this week for Part 2: Come on!
