Last week, baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez admitted he used anabolic steroids. His admission has shocked the sports world. Alex Rodriguez, A-Rod, is arguably the best hitter of his generation. His performance on the field over his career makes him one of the best ever to play the game. He is the highest-paid baseball player in America and a celebrity. Now he is tarnished. He used banned substances to get ahead. He took illegal drugs to get an edge; to get stronger; to increase his stamina. Would he be so great if he had not received a little help from his friends?
