Sandberg Weighs In on Sosa's HOF Worthiness

"Part of being a Hall of Famer, they use the word integrity in describing a Hall of Famer, in the logo of the Hall of Fame and I think there are guys who are not going to get in." Former Cub and Hall of Famer himself, Ryne Sandberg gave his opinion in response to a question during a local Chicago radio program Tuesday, when asked specifically about Sammy Sosa.

He went further in his remarks, " For the society, for the up-and-coming players and youth out there, I don't think they should be recognized at all." Sandberg said he felt part of the punishment for using steroids should be a ban on entry into the Hall. He said he doesn't support a special section for dopers.
