Overview

¿Quién usa esteroides? Según Canseco, más personas de las que uno cree. El béisbol nunca volverá a ser el mismo.

Cuando José Canseco irrumpió en las grandes ligas en la década de los ochenta, literalmente transformó el deporte— en más de una forma. Antes de él, nunca había habido un jugador que tuviera esa mezcla de velocidad y potencia que le permitió convertirse en el primer hombre de la historia en anotar más de cuarenta jonrones y batear más de cuarenta bases en una misma temporada.

Rompiendo el molde de los beisbolistas en mal estado físico, Canseco dio inicio a la era de los superatletas musculosos, que ganaban salarios descomunales y vivían como estrellas de rock. ¿Y cómo lo logró? Con esteroides. Tras sus récords más increíbles y la glamorosa vida pública, Canseco cultivó un secreto que casi todos en las ligas mayores del béisbol conocían, uno que alteraría para siempre el juego del béisbol y la forma como vemos a nuestros héroes. Canseco experimentó, mezcló y se convirtió en el ratón de laboratorio de los esteroides que en esa época apenas empezaban a infiltrar el deporte. Trasmitió sus conocimientos a los entrenadores y a sus compañeros de equipo y, al poco tiempo, los esteroides se convirtieron en la tendencia rampante entre los jugadores de béisbol de las grandes ligas.

En estas escandalosas memorias, Canseco vierte luz sobre una vida de vertiginosas alturas y debilitantes abismos, ofrece respuestas a las preguntas que millones de aficionados apenas comienzan a plantearse; y sugiere que lejos de ser una tendencia pasajera, la revolución de los esteroides es apenas una muestra de lo que está por venir.
