Sadly, it’s not for Hall of Fame voters (presentation: “HGH: it really does nothing, dudes, so just chill, OK?”), it’s for the kids:
The Baseball Hall of Fame is starting a drug education program for students and young adults … The Hall plans to promote a healthy lifestyle that is free of PEDs. The program will be called “Be A Superior Example,” or “BASE” for short, and will work with the Taylor Hooton Foundation and the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society.
I’d like to think that this is a preemptive P.R. thing for when Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are elected on the first ballot as they should be, but you know that ain’t happening, so I’ll adjust my expectations accordingly.
