Here is a link to a story about the MLB's suspension of some players (note some big names) sterting with “A-Rod” (Alex Rodriguez)

Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz, Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta, Phillies reliever Antonio Bastardo, Mets outfielder Jordany Valdespin, Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, free-agent pitcher Jordan Norberto, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli, Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, Mets outfielder Cesar Puello, Astros pitcher Sergio Escalona, Padres pitcher Fautino De Los Santos and Yankees outfielder Fernando Martinez have accepted their punishments handed out by Major League Baseball, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports, citing unidentified sources close to the matter.

A-Rod calls last 7 months a 'nightmare' after MLB lowers boom on him, 12 others, FoxNews.com, August 05, 2013

Notice anything about those names? None of them sound Scandinavian, that's for sure! We always hear talk about Latin domination of baseball; it appears that much of that Latin domination is derived from a greater propensity for cheating.

Steve Sailer had already blogged on this by the time I got this letter. See Noticing Patterns: 13 Out Of 14 Accused Steroid Users In MLB Have Spanish Surnames.

The list in his version includes the non-Hispanic name Ryan Braun, from California…but that’s almost a Hispanic country now, too.

A more serious problem is that the same pattern can be seen in Border Patrol corruption cases—there the names have included Oscar Antonio Ortiz,. Juan Alvarez, David Duque, and two brothers named Villareal.
