Re: dichotomy is not the word to use in that context
A division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different. When there are two ideas, especially two opposed ideas — like war and peace, or love and hate — you have a dichotomy. In this case; people competing hard in honest effort and those dishonest individuals that have "swiped" a bat.
