Which made Canseco’s second benefactor — Mike Wallace — all the more important. John Hamlin, a producer at 60 Minutes , had gotten a tip about Canseco’s book from a friend at another network. (The friend couldn’t act on it because his employer was a Major League Baseball rights holder.) Hamlin began calling baseball people and confirming the details.

All four tested positive for Stanozolol, the steroid once made famous when sprinting champion Ben Johnson was stripped of his gold medal and world record in the 100-meter dash at the 1988 Seoul Olympics .

Among the widely used steroids is Deca-Durabolin. For the past three decades, Deca Durabolin steroid has delivered great gains to people looking for muscle mass and has the ability to reduce joint pain and boost the body’s immune system. The most important benefit of Deca-Durabolin for both amateur athletes and bodybuilders is that it doesn’t have serious side effects since it doesn’t convert to estrogen like other compounds. As such, Deca-Durabolin does not have severe or higher degree side effects that other compounds might have.
