Scott has yet to fill out a bio.
Hey, Scott: Excellent piece on Caminiti. I think you captured him and his era very well. For the record, though, there was a small interim step taken before Caminiti gave his groundbreaking interview to Tom Verducci. The person who accomplished this, Jules Bailey, deserves some credit. Jules was a producer at CNN/Sports Illustrated as the channel was in its final death throes. For many of the reasons you and Tom cite, we were quite convinced that if any Major Leaguer were to break the silence it would be Caminiti. For one thing, he was in that stage of treatment, as Tom notes, that requires honesty and reflection. I assigned Jules to follow Ken everywhere, for more than two months, until he was ready to talk. And he did, at the huge biker rally in Laughlin, Nev. It was a brief interview, and Caminiti was guarded in casting blame across the league, but on camera he confessed that he had used steroids throughout his 1996 MVP season. We sat on this interview until Tom could complete his article for SI (a fact that made my colleagues at CNN none too happy), and the dominoes began falling. I think that with his cover story for SI Tom did more than any individual to turn the tide against steroids in baseball. But Jules deserves a smidgen of credit as well for her doggedness and success in persuading Caminiti to talk.

Your welcome Scott, keep up the good work.
Great article!! Love the reference to Disco Night in 1979. The Hoffman brothers were there that night after we convinced our sister to sacrifice her disco records so we could get in the Sox game for $.99. Wow was that a crazy night. Keep the great articles coming. I truly enjoy your articles and your writing style. Glad you are writing for Bleacher Report.
