Our national pastime is now riddled with accusations, testing, and debates about whether or not records will need to include an asterisk. In attorney David Ezras new book, Asterisk, he explores the public trials of the baseball community. Are accusations of steroid use justified? Or do todays well-trained players, whose teams play in newly constructed ballparks, shatter records because the game has changed?Many chalk up the power explosion of recent years, including the toppling of Hank Aarons home run record, to the rampant use of steroids. But do steroids even help in hitting a baseball? The answer is not as clear as you think. In an intriguing response to Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williamss 2006 title, Game of Shadows, Ezra examines Barry Bondss public persona before, during, and after his race to beat the home-run record.
