Caminiti Died of Drug Overdose

I’ve been on a break from baseball news about these parts; I’ll be looking to refocus on my post-season wrapups after the election. One item of note: a medical examiner’s report has attributed Ken Caminiti’s death to a cocaine overdose. Of course, the contrubuting causes – “[c]oronary artery disease and an enlarged heart” – can’t entirely be separated from Caminiti’s other problems, including steroids, but it would seem that the major culprit here was drugs of a non-performance-enhancing nature.
