    Steroids In Baseball

    • 778 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The use of steroids, also known as performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), in baseball has been illegal in Major League Baseball since 1991, even though they did not start league wide testing until 2003. And even though they are outlawed, many still use steroids and get away with it. This gives them an unfair advantage and if not used properly can ruin not only their careers, but their lives. I believe that steroids should become legal in the MLB to level the playing field. Many people cheat and get…

    • 6 Pages

    How the MLB will become a more ethnic sport over time. It’s no question that baseball is one of the most racist sports in the world. The Cleveland Indians have managed to create the most racist logo in sports of all time. It is very offensive as it is a cartoon Indian with a red face and a feather. But that’s just a logo. I want to talk about the players and the future of the league. The MLB consisting of 30 teams, 2 leagues (American and National) is one of the most increasing sports in…

    • 2 Pages

    The 1930s and 1940s were know for the campaign against desegregation of the game of baseball. The black baseball players were ultimately deprived from playing in the big leagues with the white ballplayers during the time of segregation. Not only were colored players prohibited from playing on white teams, but their games were often cancelled simply because the white major league teams “refus[ed] to play against a colored ball club” (Lamb 67). Often times, there were many black players who were…

    This weekend was great and I had a blast with all the fun activities I did. I had three fun activities and was petrified when the weekend ended.

I also had fielding practice on Sunday at the Parker Fieldhouse. This time, we…

    Analytical Interpretation of a Political Cartoon Most Americans work hard for what they have, yet, it is baseball, America’s pastime, where the players cheat their way to the top of the game. The evolution of steroids in baseball has evolved rapidly in the past two decades. The lack of routine drug tests in baseball, combined with the less than harsh suspensions has created a league unlike that of the previous century.
