Little Leaguers: “I Won’t Cheat”

Doesn’t it seem like we’re getting hit with a lot of bad news these days? Well, here’s some good news to brighten your day: Little Leaguers are in agreement that use of performance-enhancing substances is bad.

Sure, they don’t seem to entirely comprehend the health risks of using steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. But your eleven- and twelve-year-old boys do know what has gone on, and they’re very clear that they don’t like it. Many Little Leaguers say that they’re disappointed with their favorite players, and some even call those under scrutiny “cheaters.” But more importantly, these young players are vowing not to let performance-enhancing substances affect their own lives. Baseball leagues across the country are having their players wear “I Won’t Cheat” patches and pledge to remain clean.

But remember, parents, just because your kids are in the know about pop culture doesn’t mean you should let a teachable moment pass you by. Try discussing with your kids not just cheating, but also the physical and emotional toll steroids can have on the body. And be conscious not to be too hard on your kid’s hero – the Little Leaguers mentioned in the article above agreed that the pros “messed up,” but they also believe the players deserve a second chance.

I would like to make a very important comment in regards to the use of sports enhancing drugs. THEY ARE DANGEROUS, I have many friends that are professional sports athletes and some have suffered for the use thereof! NOW, there is a choice that is 100% safe, non-transdermal, no drugs, nothing enters the body! Being used by NBA, WNBA, NFL and other players effectively, this product is safe for ALL ATHLETES of ALL AGES! I invite all coaches, trainers, doctors and parents of young athletes to take a look and then ask for a FREE SAMPLE! Nothing to lose and everything to gain …. especially, “The Competitive Edge!” The website:
