Steroids in MLB: An Analysis of Hitters

Part of the Sports Economics, Management and Policy book series (SEMP, volume 1)


Among the most controversial topics in major league baseball is the steroid era, apparently beginning in the mid-1980s and continuing until the mid-2000s. Steroids not only help players rehabilitate injuries faster, but with proper diet and weight training, they help build muscle and increase strength. Steroids have been linked to many of the top stars in baseball and much has been written about the topic.
