Injected For The Game
Ejected From Life
With steroid use all but institutionalized in the Major Leagues a JV pitcher TAYLOR HOOTON commits suicide. Telling TAYLOR’S story heals his father DON’S grieving heart as it strengthens the resolve of MLB executives, DEA special agent JACK and others enforcing U.S. drug laws.
High school senior TAYLOR HOOTON, striving to be the very best pitcher, takes anabolic steroids, falls into depression and hangs himself. DON, TAYLOR’S father, and “JACK,” the DEA Special Agent who befriends DON, strive against public apathy and denial to make TAYLOR’S life and death matter.
