ABSTRACT
The author discusses a variety of issues concerning the investigations being done by the U.S. Justice Department on the use of performance-enhancing drugs by baseball players in the county. He argues that the entire performance-enhancing drugs or steroids use among athletes is a moral and ethical disgrace. He adds that if the Congress is serious about the issue, it would have questioned every player, owner, trainer and baseball union official.
