Steroids and Baseball As most people know by now, the ban on steroids has become one of baseballs biggest rules as of late. They are banned for a number of reasons, mainly because steroids are dangerous and harmful to someone’s body, and because steroids make a person more muscular.

Tougher Punishment Needed for Steroids

performance-enhancing drugs, depending on what sport and/or what league you are playing in, the penalty is dramatically different. For example, if you are found using steroids during the winter or summer Olympics, you automatically receive a two-year suspension for a positive test (Bodley 1).
