Reply To: Foul ball! Oregonian drags pitcher through the mud


The Oregonian editorial staff should certainly be ashamed of what they have done in publishing this story. Obviously their decision reveals that sensationalism and the lure of money from increased sales ( or the hope of such) outweighs the merits of leaving this young man alone, rather than dragging out his past for all to see. The Oregonian has defied the essential basics of fairness and decency. The readers of this paper should be outraged. There is not a single justifiable reason for printing this article.
