New Stuff Tuesday – July 17

Drugs, Power and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball

Juicing the Game
Drugs, Power and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball

McNaughton Collection, 2nd floor

We’ll keep the baseball theme for New Stuff Tuesdays going this week with a selection from the McNaughton Collection. Juicing the Game takes the reader through the history of the ‘Juiced Era,’ which began after the 1994 strike and changed the face of baseball forever. Bryant, a sports writer for the Boston Globe, doesn’t just focus on the players that have delved into performance-enhancing drugs, but also looks at the leadership of baseball to find out how was actually known during the time of the abuse. In the end, the author interviews all levels of involved individuals, from commissioners down to the players. Might be interesting to read while watching the possible event of Bonds surpassing Aaron on the all-time home run list.
