But remember ... it's a moisturizer too!

This is sad. Baseball stars are who little boys grow up wishing they could be. By having such a hero show them that his natural dark skin color is not okay, he is telling little boys across the world that it is better to have white skin. Why are allowing him to do this? The MLB should prohibit this in the same way they do steroids.

Who are WE to allow Sammy to do anything? Would you want Sammy to tell you what to eat, drink, or when to go to sleep? MLB regulates steroids because it provides an unfair advantage to players, thusly an unfair game takes place, with players that have almost superpower-like qualities. MLB cannot tell Sammy what to do with his skin or surgeries, regardless of the results (and his are not optimal in my opinion). You might see Sosa as a "hero" (as you see Zac Efron as well), but he is a person. With rights. He can do whatever he chooses. As long as he can slam that ball out of the park, his use of hydroquinone is irrelevant. He might be a hero to young boys (and girls) in some form or fashion, but he is a baseball player. He gets paid to play a sport. Not to volunteer at the local Boy's Club.
