Baseball Controversy… College Bound?

Posted on December 13, 2007. Filed under: Sports | Tags: , , , , , |

As you may or may not know, Dec. 13th the Mitchell Report was released for the MLB. This report has addressed the constant issue of steroid use that has plagued the Major Leagues for many years. In the report there were many names given that had some connection to steroid use in the past. The thing that I found interesting with the Major League Commissioners report after the reports initial release was his action for the future. His plan included tightening up all aspects of steroid use through increased rates of random testing for players without a 24 hour notice and harsher penalties.

I personally believe that the underlying issue here is not just the All-Star list of players that have allegedly taken steroids, but the message that this will send to college and high school students worldwide. I think that harsh penalties and strict testing should be steepened in the Major Leauge because it will say to all the high school and college students that it is not okay to cheat by using performance enhancing drugs and it will help with the problem on a large scale for the future.  I also think that steroid testing in college should be increased to “nip the problem in the butt” for lack of a better metaphor.

Please leave me a comment or a response as to what you think about this issue and if you want to talk to other college students about the problems or anything else then you can do so at
