Bradenton Times coverage: 'MLB steroid era personalized in Caminiti book'
"For so many reasons, Ken Caminiti’s life shouldn’t be forgotten."
I had the pleasure to speak recently with Don Laible of the Bradenton (Fla.) Times, and he wrote an op-ed about my book.
"For so many reasons, Ken Caminiti’s life shouldn’t be forgotten. After reading Dan Good’s Playing Through The Pain – Ken Caminiti and the Steroids Confession That Changed Baseball Forever, I gained a new perspective on the pressures professional athletes can face," Laible wrote.
"Playing Through The Pain offers a rare inside look at a topic that shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon in MLB history," he added. "The steroid era produced many highlights and new individual records, but at great cost to some. Good zeroes in on a major player, during one time in baseball history, and gets one conclusion: what you see isn’t what you always get."
