From the Publisher
Annotation In this investigative report into the use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in major league baseball, sports journalist Howard Bryant covers the bases in interviews with players, union reps, and Commissioner Bud Selig---all of whom must be part of any solution to this national scandal. Bryant's hard-hitting, comprehensive account addresses key questions: How widespread is the practice? Did team owners and Major League Baseball look the other way, choosing profits over principles? What can and should be done about the scandal that provoked televised appearances before a Congressional committee? And has America's favorite pastime been irreparably harmed by the scope of the scandal?
Editors Note A history of steroid and performance-enhancing drug use in major league baseball discusses such issues as the 1994 strike and the current threat of punitive legislation, in an investigative account that features anecdotes by and interviews with such figures as Jason Giambi, Bud Selig, and Donald Fehr. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.
Editors Note 2 Presents a history of performance-enhancing drug use in Major League Baseball, discussing such issues as the 1994 strike, the current threat of punitive legislation, and the complicity of baseball managers and coaches.
