Actually, that's not even necessarily true. Fact is, many substances banned by Major League Baseball are legal to purchase by any ordinary American citizen at their local pharmacy or health/nutrition outlet. If I remember correctly, there are literally hundred(s) of such items banned by baseball that are not illegal.
Regardless, we're not talking about breaking the laws outside of the game of baseball. We're talking about something directly relevant to the sport and in an era where clearly the established bar of preponderance has been set very low empirically by the players themselves.
