From the Seattle Times comes an interview with Ken Griffey Jr. This is a player who really qualifies as the best baseball player of the past 20 years. Griffey discusses steroids and PEDs:
A. It comes from the sense of pride when my dad [Ken Griffey Sr.] played. The biggest thing was that my dad wasn't a superstar. He was an All-Star, but not a superstar. And that helped because he always told me, "I'm going to work hard, my name is never going to be mentioned with doing anything wrong. I go out there and play and do it right." He told me I'd never be the biggest guy on the team, never be the strongest on the team, never be the fastest on the team. But he said, "Guess what — you can have the most heart on the team and that means doing everything the right way." That's what he taught me as a kid, that the team comes first. When I was young, he always asked me first if my team won, not how I did. And he instilled in me a team-first attitude and doing things right and that means doing it within the rules and within your conscience.
The question didn't ask for Griffey's opinion on dopers, and didn't address whether Grif had been tempted or not. However, it is what it is. An answer referring to integrity. Or what might be left of it in the MLB.
