The debate over baseball player’s doping has been around since the 1990’s. The players of today are always try to get that competitive edge in baseball so they can end up in the hall of fame. They want to be the Mark McGwire or Barry Bonds were the players can produce record breaking stats without training or working for that title. Any MLB player that as ever doped or has taken steroids should banded from professional baseball and not allowed in the hall of fame. History shows that steroids due produce extraordinary results when used in the major league baseball.
Aside from education, there are other faults this baseball culture brings with ties to the business side of it. Signing a ball player is an event that takes place July 2nd once the player is 16 years of age. The years prior of sacrifice, being away from family, and training can all be celebrated on this day if a team is willing to invest in the individual. Every day the player is not signed after that date, the value of the contract and signing bonus goes down. Trainers put all their time and efforts into these players and often come up short of their goal.
Pete Rose has been barred from entering the Baseball Hall of Fame due to the fact that he had gambled on baseball games while he played. The issue with Pete Rose not betting on his team warrants a lesser offense than cheating. If Pete Rose can be barred then all those who used steroids can also be banned. Lastly, I would impose a monetary fine on the owner of the team or owners for failing to adhere to the new MLB ethics Policy. Too many times players would be suspended with little or no adverse recourse for the organization.
T.J. Quinn; a writer and former baseball hall of fame voter says “PEDs did change what we saw on the field. A player who used banned drugs did not simply disgrace himself, he altered himself.” There is no shortage of racists and domestic abusers in the Baseball Hall of Fame, however this criteria has not kept anyone out of Cooperstown because it did not happen on the field. Ironically enough, the argument to keep out the likes of players like Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa hits a serious roadblock, when we see how many Hall of Famers have admitted to using “greenies” during their career. Hall of famers Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron have all admitted they used amphetamines during their careers (ESPN). Under baseballs current drug testing rules, all three of these beloved figures would have gotten suspended from Major League Baseball for 80 games (NBC).
That is my brother life and about what he does. I talk about his baseball career and his schooling and what he does on his free time. He is a awesome brother and he want me to get better at everything and he want me to reach my goals. So I will not trade my brother for
Regretting is being disappointed over a missed opportunity. Lewis Carroll stated, “In the end of our life, we regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were too afraid too have and the decisions we waited too long to make.” The missed opportunity that I regret in my life is not going to the invitational for USA Baseball. This opportunity could’ve been my big break in baseball while as a player in high school. I never put in the hard work and I learned my lesson because I wasn’t ready to try out because I felt that I wasn’t good enough. I live by Lewis Carroll’s quote because at the end of my life I don’t want to regret anything.
If you could summarize baseball in one sentence it would be, “Baseball is a game of failure.” If you can fail 7/10 times and still be considered one of the Greats to play, then you must have a persevering heart. No one likes to fail, but to play this game you need to know how to deal with it. All my years of playing baseball, failing is one thing I have come to deal with. You have to have the mindset that there is always going to be another pitch or ground ball. You can’t dwell on a past mistake.
He also found that there was a conspiracy going on that involved bars, newspapers, and restaurants. Cincinnati bars would not serve patrons drinks unless the patrons first submitted a filled out ballots selecting members of the Reds. A Cincinnati paper (Cincinnati Enquirer) made up ballots that were already made up, selecting the Reds in their Sunday paper to allow fans an easier way to vote The repercussions Ford Frick decided that he did not want to mess with the starting team too much, but did replace two players with Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, who were the most popular players in the National League at that time. Aaron and Mays replaced Gus Bell (center field) and Wally Post (right field). That still meant that five Reds made the team, one over Ernie Banks and the other over Eddie Matthews.
If the DH would be taken away and they learn to hit, the pitcher would have to hit and this could allow them to become huge prospects in the off season during free agency. You can’t play basketball if you can’t dribble can you? You can 't play golf if you can’t hit the golf ball right? Well in baseball if you can’t field it 's okay as long as you can hit. The DH hides players deficiency when the whole point of the game of baseball is to use players strengths and weaknesses to evaluate them and draft them to a team to play in games and win.
Some rivalries here but it is about the same as the NFL, playoff matchups get confused as rivalries. The Cardinals and the Giants always offer up a great playoff series but for the regular season well not so much. They played around seven kinds of boring sloppy games where the pitching sucked and the bats were just as unimpressive. The best thing about baseball in all honesty is the playoff races like right now the AL central is hot along with the AL east that as well is about it. What can we do to revive the "rivalry"?
