Wally Joyner busted on the scene becoming the first rookie to be voted into the All-Star game by the fans. During his rookie year, he batted .290, hit 22 HRs and had 100 RBIs—he came in second in ROY voting to Jose Canseco. His sophomore season was even better. Joyner batted .285, hit 34 homers and drove in 117, quickly becoming a fan favorite. He never had seasons like his first two and his stock fell. He bounced around, but was always solid defensively. In a 2005 ESPN interview, Wally admitted to asking Ken Caminiti about acquiring steroids because he felt his career was coming to an end and at 36 he wanted to revive it. He also confessed the same to Senator Mitchell during the Mitchell Report investigation.
