Worst Player Behavior?
Worst behavior is listed below in descending order, including outright cheating. Lying is the worst. For each day you lie, you should have to wait that many days before being considered for the Hall of Fame after you come clean.
- Lying about anything below.
- Taking money to intentionally lose the World Series (Joe Jackson and other members of the 1919 Chicago White Sox).
Legal performance enhancing stuff like cortisone, coffee, vitamins, etc. is OK with most of the steroid zealots. Amphetamines were commonly used for decades. Before amphetamines were widely used in the U.S. Army in WWII, coffee provided a boost. Joe DiMaggio drank coffee during games. What, you thought he was just Mr. Coffee on TV? They didn’t call him Joltin’ Joe for nothing.
