Ken Caminiti was the type of ball player that fans loved.
He electrified third base and the batter’s box with a formidable combination of grit, finesse and power.
However, it was what the one-time unanimous NL MVP (1996) did after his playing days that stands above the great fielding plays, all-star appearances and revitalizing the San Diego Padres franchise.
In 2002, Caminiti came clean about baseball’s worst-kept secret.
Author Dan Good paints a portrait of a big-hearted man who lived life on the edge and how his public confession forced Major League Baseball to confront its steroid problem.
