It just makes me sad these days to see people are so jumpy to hate and criticize to lift themselves up or just be cruel to gain attention. I also believe it takes talent, skill, and hard work to hit off of a major league pitcher. I played baseball for 12 years and didn't have the God given gift to go further. I know for a fact steroids wouldn't have made any difference. Mcgwire last night was nothing less than a class act. He poured out his heart for the love of the game and to come clean. You can tell in the beginning of the interview he was nervous. He's not an outgoing person like myself so I can definately feel for him being in the spotlight. This was extremely tough for him to do. Everyone makes mistakes, he admitted his and for that we have to respect him for his courage. The steroid scandal has affected me especially since my favorite ballplayer of my childhood was involved and have lost interest in MLB because of it. I do forgive him and ready to move on from this and to enjoy baseball again that has been cleaned up. I am proud of what McGwire did and I hope I can meet him one day to thank him for caring enough to come clean.
