Local Reaction to Alex Rodriguez' Performance-Enhancing Drug Admission
NEW YORK -- New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has admitted using performance-enhancing drugs when he played for the Texas Rangers between 2001 and 2003.
The former Mariner is on pace to become baseball's all-time home run king. He, of course, has a lot of fans in our area. Monday, we spoke with some local high school baseball players to see if they still look up to A-Rod.
Toppenish baseball player Luis Hernandez says, "Now that I know what he did; it kind of makes you look at it different. I don't think he's one of the better baseball players. It makes you think all the wins that he had were fake and they were due to his steroids."
Ellensburg Baseball Player Ben Luce says, "I don't think the record should be legit because its not fair to anyone who played before him or played the right way. It's a lot different than any other sport because you know everyone is cheating pretty much."
