"A grand jury, a tell-all book and a congressional committee have combined to
form a major-league needle puncturing baseball's public image" , reported Chris Jenkins of USA Today in 'Players Admit Steroids Changed Baseball' (USA Today, 03/15/2005)
Between February 17, 2005 and March 9, 2005 five-hundred sixty-eight Major League players answered a survey and 79% believed steroids played "some role" in recent record breaking performances.
More than a century of baseball history is in jeopardy due to the actions taken by a few players who have chosen to cheat. Generations of fans have followed generations of players who have assaulted the record books, but now the fans and players are left wondering which records are accurate.
Major League players, former Commissioners of Major League Baseball, politicians, professional athletes, members of the media, and an epic number of fans have an opinion, often strong, about the impact and future of our national pastime.
The future is not yet known and baseball has stood the test of time. We here at 755HomeRuns.com love the game of baseball and we have created this site in honor of every one of Hank Aaron's 755 steroid free home runs — and the pitchers who served them up.
