Today, Major League Baseball banned 13 players for at least 50 games, and in the case of Alex Rodriguez the remaining 2013 season and the 2014 season. It saddens me that this is what our sport has become. I remember as a child the build up to Hank Aaron‘s 715th home run, it was a national obsession and a celebration when he surpassed Babe Ruth‘s record. Unfortunately today’s kids will never witness the innocent excitement of sport the way we were able to enjoy it. Today’s sports have * behind the records out of suspicion of doping and cheats. Gone are the days when a child wanted to grow up to be the next Hank Aaron or Johnny Bench, now because of cheating, the luster of sport has grown dim.
