Thoughts, lists and other compulsive bits about baseball from comedian filmmaker television producer/Red Sox fan Paul Francis Sullivan....
feel free to call him “Sully.”
Hey Sully- Nice stuff about steroids and real apologies and yes I am reading your blog. -Laura Corrin-Gallo
Sully, there was at least one guy who admitted to steroid use without getting caught first. That was Tom House, the relief pitcher from the 1970's who's made a good second career as a pitching coach. He claimed that roughly half of the pitchers on each team were using steroids in the 1970's.I haven't seen any other pitchers from his era admitting to steroid use, but House is a straightforward professional and I tend to believe his account. Certainly steroid use was common among Olympic athletes by the 1970's--there's no reason to doubt that steroids were being used by MLB players, too.
