Help With Research Paper

I have to write a 5 page research paper on the MLB Drug Policy but i have a few questions that i cant seem to find a good answer for so i figured i would come here and ask

When were steroids first exposed in baseball?
When did they become a problem?
Who was the first star player to get caught using steroids?

If you guys have any other helpful things that you might know please suggest them.

Thanks

If you look it goes on to say that Ken Camminiti was the first star player to admit using steroids, and this was in mid 2002. Don’t know if that helps.

No references, but gives you a good idea of where to start looking.

They say they were a problem in the early nineties, but didnt not become illegal per se until 2003.

Is the Mitchell report public? It might help to browse that.
