I’m an avid reader of Slashdot, and there’s a great bit over there this morning about a pitcher-turned-law student who was advised to cheat to succeed. Apparently the coach wanted him to start breaking the rules in order to have an out pitch. He gave up the game, became a student at the St Louis University School of Law, and wrote a paper “that attempted to apply the tenets of legal theorists to the rampant cheating in baseball and other sports”.
I’ve only read part of it so far, and it’s quite interesting. I wanted to point anyone to it who might be interested. It gives us a peak into the “culture of cheating” as some call it, and how it starts creeping into a player’s psyche.
