Why did some players not use steroids in the 1990s?
This answer here, on the surface at least, seems fairly obvious: They didn’t do it because it’s wrong. It isn’t fair play. It’s cheating nature. Cheaters never prosper. It’s important to set an example for the kids. Never take the easy way. It is not if you win or lose but how you play the game. You know, the All-America stuff.
I’m not mocking here. I believe in Superman, Mister Rogers values. A sizable portion of players avoided steroids for precisely these reasons, and I wish people knew who they were because they deserve to be applauded in every ballpark across America. It took guts and principle to stay clean in a game when every advantage pointed to using performance-enhancing drugs.
