Steroids In Return To Busch Stadium
REAX: When asked about McGwire, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig said, “This is a day of celebration. ... That’s the only comment I’m going to make on that subject.” Meanwhile, Selig said he has not heard from the MLBPA since the most recent Congressional hearing in DC last week (MLB.com, 10/2). In Houston, Jose de Jesus Ortiz wrote, “Shame on the Cardinals, and shame on [MLB] for letting the Cardinals parade a fraud before the Busch Stadium public the same week ... Selig continued to press hard against the drug enablers in the players’ union” (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/2).
LEFT OFF: The AP reported McGwire was left off the All-Time Busch Stadium Team by fans who instead voted for current Cardinal Albert Pujols at 1B (AP, 10/1).
