Recently, I was looking on and I came across some shocking videos teaching you how to cheat at baseball.

These videos aren't saying cheating is right, as they clearly say it is illegal, yet you get the vibe that they are. I mean, they are telling you how to cheat. The main problem I find with this is with the major Steroid boom these videos coupled with Manny and A-Rod steroid admissions is telling kids "It's ok to cheat...Just don't get caught."

Is this really the nature of the game and sports in general? You can cheat as long as you don't get caught? That's like saying "Oh yes President Obama you can invade any country you want...just don't lose."

This is a horrible time for this to be happening! Right when you think "Oh man the got Manny AND A-Rod this has to be getting over," these videos surface and teach kids how to cork a bat and throw spitballs.

What is the world coming to? I believe from now on should take down any video showing how to cheat at a sport. Also that MLB should have six testings yearly: One in spring training, One at the start of the season, one at the all-star break, one at the end of the season, one during the playoffs, and one in the middle of the off-season. Also, the MLB should implement a policy, "if your caught once, your done."

This would make it impossible to cheat. Kids these days could be the new Babe Ruth, or Albert Pujols, but need to be taught cheating is wrong and is punishable by law.
