No, not the use of steroids BY little leaguers, but their response to the steroid scandal and how it changed many of these kids' perceptions of guys like Rafael Palmeiro, Sham-ME*, and Giambi.

My favorite part was an interview with Austin Smith, a 12-year-old who used to idolize Sham-ME* but now thought of Derrek Lee as his favorite player. The kid started to think differently after the corked bat incident, but then started to wonder if he was on steroids or HGH. Smart kid.


But I tol' the Congre'me' that I never took illegal asteroids.
