New Jersey Senator Steven Oroho, primary sponsor of comprehensive legislation to mitigate steroid use among students, stated the following in response to today’s vote to keep known and alleged performance enhancing drug users out of Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame:
“Hall of Fame voters set the right example for America’s youth by denying baseball’s ultimate, eternal distinction to former players whose careers are justly tarnished by their use of PEDs. Hopefully, today’s decision establishes a precedent for future Hall of Fame votes and inspires more leaders of schools, communities, states and collegiate or professional sports to protect children and deter them from being tempted by promises of fame due to steroid use.
“Cheating, in the end, does not get you ahead, and there is no glory in using destructive drugs that jeopardize your health.”
