Emmy Award-winning sportscaster Jim Gray caught up with home run king and Braves senior V.P. Hank Aaron, 68, and asked him about the state of the game.
Gray: What do you make of the allegations of steroid use in baseball?
Aaron: When I see players adding a lot of weight and all of a sudden they are much stronger, I get concerned.
Gray: What do you think about the fact that McGwire used androstenedione and a couple of weeks ago Bonds said he was taking creatine?
Aaron: I don't know what they do with it. I can't even pronounce either of them. To me, using that stuff is like putting cork in the bats. I just don't like it, and I don't endorse it.
Gray: Would you favor drug testing in baseball?
Aaron: Very much so. I think anybody who would not be for it would have something to hide.
Gray: Do you think that there will be a strike?
Aaron: Yes, and it will be devastating to baseball.
Gray: What message would a strike send to the fans?
