Home Run Records Come Back To Earth (letter)

To: Sports@LATimes.com

Dear Editor:

Apparently, random steroid testing in the major leagues is showing results. After years of watching cheaters Bonds, Sosa and McGwire fraudulently re-write the record books by regularly hitting 50, 60 and even 70 homers a season, we have returned to normalcy. With just four weeks to go, it appears that the home run title will be won by someone who hits about 40.
