Perhaps you think that scandals do not happen within sports teams. Unfortunately, the truth is that scandals are very common.
In fact, baseball scandals are, by far, the most common types of scandals that occur on a fairly regular basis.
From high school baseball to college baseball to major league baseball, there are a number of different activities which are illegal to the game of baseball that occur all the time. The main activity? Steroid usage.
So why does this type of baseball scandal happen so often? Well, college baseball players feel that the only way they will ever get to play for a major league team is if they use steroids. High school players?
They believe that the only way they will get to play on a college baseball team is through steroids.
Common misconception among high school and college students is that steroids will not kill you.
Scare tactics tend to not work in stopping young men from using steroids, as they do not believe that steroids are dangerous for them.
The ones who do realize that they are dangerous for them simply do not care.
So how do the people who take part in this type of baseball scandal get punished? Well, being suspended from the sport has proven to be the most effective.
The next time that you think about taking steroids for baseball, you should consider the fact that it is illegal for this sport- and pretty much every other sport for that matter.
If you do not want to get suspended from the game, you shouldn't take part in this.
