Thesis (M.A.)--State University of New York Empire State College, 2012
This thesis reviews baseball's history, its union, and the many threats they faced over the decades, particularly, the recent threat caused by performance enhancing drugs (herein after PEDs). This thesis answers the question: What have been the determinants of the league's policy on PEDS? This thesis argues that the reason Major League Baseball (herein after MLB) delayed so long in acting on PEDs was because its unique history and income deterred the League from doing so. Furthermore, when the League and union did react, they reacted due to the threats from Congress, pressure from the media, and the possible threat to their income by public sentiment. The foundation for this thesis are rooted in several past and present MLB Collective Bargaining Agreements, past and present MLB Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Policies, The Mitchell Report, journalist Barry Bloom, author J.C. Bradbury and a plethora of both published and non-published sources
