Mike Trout Says PED Users Should Be Banned For Life

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout says that baseball players who get caught using performance-enhancing drugs should be banned from the game for life.

“To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught,” Trout told WFAN, a New York radio station, prior to the opener of a four-game series between the Angels and the New York Yankees. “It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural.”

Trout was asked his opinion on the subject because he and the Angels are squaring off against the Yankees, and Alex Rodriguez, currently is appealing a 211-game suspension, which runs through the 2014 season, for violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy.

The 22-year old Trout won the American League Rookie of the Year Award after hitting a .326, with 30 homer runs, 83 RBI’s, and 49 stolen bases last year, and is having another stellar campaign this season, hitting a .330, with 20 homers, along with 73 runs driven in, and 26 stolen bases.

“Some people just are just trying to find that extra edge,” Trout added in the interview. “It’s tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts [in] 110 percent effort … to wake up, see there’s a list of guys that are on the list.”

Trout is just another player that has said he would like to have tougher penalties for PED use, which is something we may see in the game, as soon as this winter.

In the meantime, Trout will likely continue to be one of the best players in the game.
