Thanks for giving us a glance at how former players who chose to stay clean, but never made it to the big leagues, were affected during the Steroid Era. For a while I had stopped characterizing the scandal as innocence lost, believing instead that there was no innocence to lose in the first place because everybody was using. Now I see that I was wrong.

Living Strong

Phil Taylor's column on fighting cancer (POINT AFTER) is one of the best I have ever read. The courage of those young boys and girls gives hope not only to their family and friends but also to the teams that have adopted them. My wife battled ovarian cancer for 18 years before finally succumbing in 2005. Her hope, courage and faith made me a better person, as I'm sure will be the case for the players on these teams.
