So it’s great you post with a name that can be associated with yourself and your honest opinion.
The problem with your view is that if it (ped) becomes required to compete on the field of play you more or less end up with a very small program..please see the current major division.
When PED use is more or less required it is hard for the game to stay a sport when clean players play against PED power guys.
This PED power advantage is why I hate big fields without real strong homerun limits. It rewards PED use.
I am sure you personally understand this and have seen it or maybe felt it at the field.
I understand it’s impossible to get PED power out of softball BUT... it’s easy to improve the game while eliminating most of the offensive advantage while also making the game safer.
Move to smaller, 300 foot fields , put strong home run limits in play, use a little softer ball bat combo that still allows average players to hit homeruns...in other words...the game needs to eliminate or dramatically reduce the value of home runs... I am sorry... the support of PED use has taken the game to this point.
To close... do you really, honestly, believe using PED is equal to spending 1 to maybe 2 hours in the gym every day? Now that one is funny.
