This Week In Baseball History

Feb 28, 2018

Like the rest of America, Major League Baseball was overrun in the early 1980s by cocaine, culminating in a massive trial in Pittsburgh where seven players testified against their dealers. Thirty-two years ago this week, on February 28, 1986, Peter Ueberroth suspended all seven, and four others, to prove the league was serious about cleaning up its act. Mike and Bill look at the history of drug use in the game, of cocaine itself, of the trial, and of the league's largely failed attempts to police itself.
