Baseball fans sign up en masse for no-call list

From the Newsroom

Fans have less anger about steroids than they do towards player salaries, an AP/AOL poll revealed Tuesday. The telephone poll, which asked 1001 adults what they felt was baseball’s “biggest problem,” found that 33 percent thought it was high salaries, while 27 percent chose steroids and 22 percent said it was the cost of attending games.

Only 40 percent of those surveyed claimed to be baseball fans, although the AP’s press release did not break out the poll results between fans and non-fans. However, there was good news: two-thirds of those surveyed agreed with the statement that steroid users should be barred from the Hall of Fame, allowing the AP to run with that as the headline.
