Steroids Fallout

The survey was intended to be anonymous and the samples destroyed, however a master list of 104 players was discovered during a federal raid of a Long Beach, California, laboratory. One day after the Sports Illustrated report was released, Rodriguez admitted to taking banned steroids between 2001 and 2003, citing "an enormous amount of pressure to perform." Following the MLB's 2003 survey, mandatory testing of major league baseball players began in 2004, along with penalties for violations. (Photo: Jeff Daly/PictureGroup)
