Steroids in Baseball

Baseball superstar Barry Bonds's name became synonymous with steroids in sports after eight years of investigations for steroid use, which ended with a sentence of two years of probation, 250 hours of community service, a $4,000 fine, and 30 days of home confinement. He's not the only one who made headlines, though — other star players like Mark McGwire were also in the spotlight over steroid use during that time, which left a lingering concern over drug use in baseball that's back in the news thanks to Alex Rodriguez's recent suspension.
