Yeah, I am a little surprised to know that baseball does not test for human growth hormone. Anything Bud Selig says is not worth much if players are still using "stuff" to get the advantage.

I agree with the premise in this article. The points made are excellent, especially regarding youth and the poor examples that have been set.

I am currently in the process of seeking publication for a book, "Becoming a True Champion: A Handbook for Young Athletes Aiming for Greatness" (http://www.becomingatruechampion.com/) which attacks this issue at is core and attempts to give the tools needed for young athletes to make better choices. If we are going to make a difference, this is where it will be at, with our up and coming stars in all sports.

Additionally, I publish a blog titled "The Youth Sport's Experience: Making a Difference" (http://www.becomingatruechampion.blogspot.com/). It dovetails many of the concepts detailed in the book attempting to make a dent in the thought processes that have so pervasivelly affected sports and our youth sports environment.

Please feel free to connect up with me regarding any of my material. Enjoy!!!

I've read that baseball still does not test for all types of enhancing drugs. The reason is probably due to the bargaining agreement with players.

I can think of two reasons why players of any sport at any level should not sink to such as level as to inject steroids into their body.
First and foremost, the body is the temple of God. What we put into and what we do to it reflect God. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 tells us, "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body."
Second, as mentioned in the editorial, athletes are seen as role models and sometimes even heroes for our youth today. Changes are, if a young athlete sees their role model taking steroids, they will probably think that it is okay for them to take some as well. God tells us that if any person causes a young child to sin, they will be severely punished.
Why anger God with your body? Why harm the life of a child? Athletes should consider these questions before doing any harm to their body.

Very good point with the difference in reasoning... Money drives people, always has and always will. Imm thankful that there are still some players out there for the game.

Selig is a CRIMINAL-- allowing this cheating to go for so long. He has looked the other way while Baseball has been ruined.

I must say this is indeed a very good novel, though, I have just reached about half way down the road reading the novel but has been the one that has always kept me interested in it. I just can't keep myself to get done with the book.
