(AUDIO) Justin Moore Is A Huge, But Hugely Disappointed Baseball Fan

August 11, 2013

Major League Baseball recently announced one of the largest suspensions of players in the game’s history for the use of performance enhancing drugs. As a huge baseball and Atlanta Braves fan, Justin Moore is disgusted with the state of things in MLB right now. “What’s going on right now is you’re gonna pay some guy $40 million to play all season and if you get caught doing steroids you miss 50 games, so you lose three million dollars. Whoopty do. You still get out of there with $37 million so it’s worth the risk to these people. And I hate to see what’s going on. There’s a black cloud over major league baseball right now and I think the penalty needs to be stronger, in my opinion.” While he doesn’t ever think his views will ever be adopted, he would be happy to see a “one strike and you’re out … you’re banned from baseball for life” policy implemented. But he realizes, “There’s too much money in that sport, along with the other sports, and too many TV dollars, and I don’t know if anybody’s got the balls to do it or not, but I hope they finally grow some.”

Fortunately Justin has plenty of good news to offset all the negativity happening in one of his favorite sports. “Point At You,” the first release off his Off the Beaten Path album, which will be out on September 17th, is top ten and still climbing. And he’ll be kicking off his second headlining tour on November 1st, with two of his best friends in music, Randy Houser and Josh Thompson.

Justin Moore – baseball :55

“First and foremost I’m a huge Braves fan and we’re 13 ½ games up in our division and I’m thrilled about that, but I think if they want to put a stop to what’s going on … one strike and you’re out. You’re banned from baseball for life, because what’s going on right now is you’re gonna pay some guy $40 million to play all season and if you get caught doing steroids you miss 50 games, so you lose three million dollars. Whoopty do. You still get out of there with $37 million so it’s worth the risk to these people. And I hate to see what’s going on. There’s a black cloud over major league baseball right now and I think the penalty needs to be stronger, in my opinion. That’s where my head’s at, but there’s too much money in that sport, along with the other sports, and too many TV dollars, and I don’t know if anybody’s got the balls to do it or not, but I hope they finally grow some.”
