A panel discussion in the Chapel on “Sports and the Press: How Newspapers and Other Media Do and Should Cover Baseball” included the former president of the American League, Lee MacPhail; New York Yankee batting coach and former player Roy White; New York Mets announcer and former Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals player Tim McCarver; the executive vice president of the American League, Robert Fishell and sports reporter Mike Lupica of The New York Daily News.

The panel discussed drug testing and media treatment of baseball players. MacPhail voiced the opinion that, because they were in the public eye, players must “voluntarily give up a piece of your individual rights – this is asking very little.” McCarver echoed that opinion, “The game is as close to heaven as you can get. It is an unhealthy atmosphere.”    The Miscellany News
