It was the anxiety. 

It was the depression. 

It was the marijuana use. 

It was the historic contract.

Milwaukee Brewers minor-league first baseman Jon Singleton could have been a star in this game, but came along nearly a decade too early. 

Singleton broke into professional baseball in 2009 with the Philadelphia Phillies, and three years later with the Houston Astros, was labeled a drug addict, an athlete who simply couldn’t stop smoking weed, suspended three times by Major League Baseball. 

There are 21 states along with Washington, D.C. that have legalized recreational marijuana. 

MLB not only removed marijuana from its list of banned substances in 2019, but  now has a partnership with a CBD company.
