Will Carroll, an acknowledged authority on baseball conditioning and injuries, calls for a scientific, reasoned approach to the steroids problem. He first explains the science of steroids and other drugs, describes how athletes are tested, considers the scientific evidence of effects and side effects, and, most important, analyzes whether and how these drugs impact the game.
Will Carroll writes for Baseball Prospectus and is the author of Saving the Pitcher, a revolutionary book about preventing pitching injuries that has been widely applauded. His father, Dr. William Carroll, is a former athletic trainer in professional sports and a respected sports medicine educator. Will Carroll lives in Indianapolis, and William L. Carroll lives in Mobile, AL.
