Cheating has a ripple effect. And in baseball’s steroid era, the lies and rule-breaking extended far beyond the stars that sparked the scandal. Players at all levels of the game had to decide if they should use -- and reap the benefits -- or stay clean. In this hour-long special, "Crushed" from Religion of Sports and PRX, we’ll learn how steroids took hold of baseball and meet two men whose choices reveal a story that Major League Baseball would rather forget.

Listen Sunday, June 27 at 7 p.m. on WRVO, on-air and online.
