Did Steroids Save Baseball

Friday, April 15, 2011

Did steroids save professional baseball? In my opinion it didn't hurt the game. 1998, 2001, and 2007 were probably the most popular year’s professional baseball has ever had in the last 50 years. In 1998 you had, what was in my opinion the reincarnation of professional baseball. Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa had one of the greatest performances in sports history. Whether they were using performance enhancing drugs or not they had the world paying full attention to them going after Roger Maris's homerun record. Baseball, as a sport was at an all time high, and it came right on time, seeing that professional baseball was coming out of a lockout. Which raises the question, did baseball create the monster, and are they now trying to kill it?

     In 2001 and 2007 we witnessed two more record breaking moments, when Barry Bonds broke Mark McGwire's and Hank Aaron’s homerun records. Let's face it; the homerun is the most exiting play in baseball. Everyone loves the long ball; they even have an entire event based around the homerun. If you notice, every player that had overly successful seasons between 2001-2010 has been linked to steroids. It is had for me to believe that none of the big wigs of professional baseball had no clue that this was going on. Of course they new what was happening, but because they were generating so much revenue they either turned their heads or they were pulling the strings. Either way, in my opinion they knew and still know what was and is going on.
