Do you need a current/modern controversy?


If so, there's really a variety of stuff you can write about. The lack of salary cap is a big issue in baseball as large market teams like the Yankees, Red Sox, and Phillies are consistently able to outperform small market teams like the Indians and Royals simply because of money.


You can write about people that have been banned from the game, particularly all time hits leader Pete Rose, who was banned for gambling on baseball. He's an all time great that will never be inducted into the Hall of Fame because of this.


Safety has been an issue, resulting in third base coaches (and I think first base as well, but I could be wrong) being required to wear helmets for safety. This happened a few years ago after a coach for a Rockies minor league affiliate was killed by a line drive. Some say the netting behind the plate should be extended all the way down the first and third base lines all the way to the foul poles to protect fans.


That runs the gamut as far as current controversy, but if you're looking for history you can't go wrong with the Black Sox scandal.
