Blood Sport free pdf "Blood Sport is riveting . . . a tragicomedy filled with characters straight out of a Carl Hiaasen novel." --"The Washington Post " The effects of the Biogenesis case--the biggest drug scandal in the history of American sports--are still being felt today. Fifteen Major League Baseball players were suspended, including Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez, who returns to the field in 2015, after his record season-long steroids ban. Ten men were indicted in federal court. And a new MLB commissioner was elected based on his role leading the response to the case. Now, Tim Elfrink--who broke that first story in the "Miami New Times"--joins forces with Pulitzer Prize finalist investigative reporter Gus Garcia-Roberts to tell the shocking full story behind the headlines. "Blood Sport" blows the lid off the most expensive scandal in the history of the game, and now includes a brand new epilogue revealing the stunning aftermath of the scandal and its effects for years to come.
