Baseball is part of Americana. As strong supporters of America's game, we care greatly about the integrity of the game and standard it sets for our children who look up to the players and dream of one day playing at Wrigley Field or Yankee Stadium.
In his news conference last night, President Obama addressed the current state of troubles facing the game around performance enhancing drugs.
"And, you know, the thing I'm probably most concerned about is the message it sends to our kids. What I'm pleased about is Major League Baseball seems to finally be taking this seriously, to recognize how big a problem this is for the sport, and that our kids hopefully are watching and saying, "You know what? There are no short cuts, that when you try to take short cuts, you may end up tarnishing your entire career, and that your integrity's not worth it." That's the message I hope is communicated."
Well said, Mr. President.
