With the recent congressional focus on steroid testing in Major League Baseball, it was interesting to see a local team was tested. The St. Louis Cardinals had seven players tested including their player representative.

The following players were tested for steroids by Major League Baseball:

  • Carmen Cali
  • Evan Rust
  • Mike Myers
  • Adam Wainwright
  • Cody McKay
  • Rick Ankiel
  • Ray King – Player representative

Even though Wainwright and Rust had been sent down to the minor leagues they were obligated to complete the testing.

Look at this list, though. I know it’s random, but there’s only one regular player on that list.

It is interesting to note that the representative from baseball stood watch. As Ray King said:

They stayed in the room last year, and maybe it’s different in different places, but this guy was right there. If you had stage fright, you were in trouble
