Barry Bonds had a career that baseball had never seen before, he set the all-time home run record. Was is really all him though? Kimberly Bell, one of Bonds’ old girlfriends and Greg Anderson, one of his old teammates say performance-enhancing drugs were the main reason he was such an outstanding home run hitter (The Irish Times 2011). We’ve seen steroid usage in other sports than just baseball though. There has been usage in just about any professional sport. I think steroids have ruined the game of baseball and that Barry Bonds would not have hit nearly as many home runs as he did if he never had taken steroids. Performance-enhancing drug takers should be punished much more severely.
