But just for the heck of it I will list the players that either were or became major players I played with.... if they are a maybe on ped use I will say maybe..everyone else will be a no.
Remember.. this list is in regards to when they were teammates..not as players at a latter date.
Brian Greer “maybe”..50/50
So that is..maybe one player out of 23....and honestly the one “maybe” is based off of the end of the last season Brian played with us and he had a big increase in his power distance... maybe a 30 foot jump...it also could have been just as easily because of a bat being 1 1/2 inches longer then legal . So I really do not know...but either way..it was cheating the game.
and..in the current era...unfortunately...cheating with tampering with a bat doesn’t seem to be deemed wrong by most.
Also... I do not know if any other teammate that cheated with their bat. And..I didn’t know about the one bat until the tourney was over.
In closing...If I had to guess..I would say Brian’s power increase was based on an illegal bat/not PED..and considering “I think” the only time he used it was at the world series against a bunch of steroid filled major players sadly..I don’t see it as such a big deal...and that is a very sad thing to admit.. but..then again..I hate the the powers in the game evolved the field of play into a field for ped users or bat cheats to prosper over clean players.
I still hope DD3 pushes for changes in usssa to reduce the ped boys advantage..I think the compression bat testing is putting all the players on as balanced of a technical field as possible but..the current top of the game still favors the ped cheaters
