Steroids changed baseball into a home run game

. Steroid changed baseball into a home run game

Traditionally baseball was a game of contact hitting not power hitting.

Baseball had hit a combined 3000 homers on average almost every year for 30 years prior to the steroid era,

From 1998 until 2006, the league hit over 5000 home runs per year.

All the excitement brought fans to the ballpark.

Baseball’s Performance Enhancing Drug testing has come along way, and nearly all players, today, are clean.

Historically speaking, when was the steroid era

slide5

Organizations aren’t getting what there paying for

Many steroid users were offered big contracts during the era, and after stopping steroid usage, they weren’t as productive.

Magglio Ordóñez, Jason Giambi were both players reported for taking steroids

Ordóñez stats decreased right after signing a big contract with Detroit in 2004, and Giambi was not very productive after signing a big contract with New York.

Owners all over the league had players in this situation.

Players listed in the Mitchell Commission Report

However, observing the number of players who have joined the 500 club in the last decade, the credentials for the Hall of Fame has increased; ex. Mark McGuire
