Budig says baseball will survive

Gene Budig, the former KU chancellor and president of Major League Baseball’s American League, says the sport will survive following last week’s report by George Mitchell on steroids in baseball. Budig is quoted in the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier._”America loves baseball. The Mitchell Report has not changed that,” he said in the wake of last week’s revelations of extensive steroid use by some of baseball’s biggest names. “I will predict that Major League Baseball will draw more than 80 million people next year. That will be another record for the game.”_
