After the strike years so many people turned their backs on baseball and the other major sports, NBA and NFL, said THANKS. The growth of the NBA and NFL over those years was astounding. But with the homers Canseco ,Sosa, McGwire, Bonds and others were putting up singlehandedly brought many people back to baseball. Pair that with the re-ascending of one of the greatest franchises in all of sports, the Yankees, many people came back to Baseball to cheer on their childhood favorite team and see the longballs that these guys were putting up. Nobody was complaining while it was going on, no investigations were going on during that time. But now as many people look back and point the finger saying that this was bad and it tainted the game, I would be willing to put money on it that these same people were there cheering on these men as the saviors of baseball. So to all of you who want to look back with shame remember that the league and many others sacrificed the "integrity" of the game to turn a profit and return baseball to the hearts of many Americans.
