LOS ANGELES (AP) -The Dodgers will host a steroid awareness clinic on Aug. 2 before they play Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants.
No, it's not for the players.
About 100 kids from area Little League teams are expected for a two-hour steroid awareness clinic to be held on the field during the afternoon. Dodger outfielder Juan Pierre, hitting coach Bill Mueller and former Dodger Lou Johnson are to participate in the clinic. The kids will receive a Dodger goodie bag.
That night, the Dodgers will conclude a three-game series with the Giants.
Barry Bonds, who is nearing Hank Aaron's record of 755 career home runs, has been dogged for years by suspicions that he used performance-enhancing drugs. He said he's never knowingly taken illegal steroids.
