I am a 29 year member of Toastmasters International and the rules for Toastmasters Awards Presentations is: "All Awards Presentations (Speech Contest Awards, Achievement Level and Education Awards, etc) are FINAL. That means once the award presentation is placed in the recipient's hand, it can't be taken back. This is the way it needs to be with the Houston Astros World Series Rings and Championship. However, the franchise will have to live with what they did to obtain the W.S. Championship the rest of their lives, and it's never the same as having achieved a World Series Ring honestly. One Hundred years ago, when the Chicago Black Sox threw the World Series and broke the hearts of a lot of White Sox Fans, the players were banned from playing Major League Baseball for life, including Shoeless Joe Jackson who played his best, but took the mob's money, and Buck Weaver who played his best but knew what was going on and didn't tell anybody. The players on the Houston Astros who were involved in the cheating and sign stealing, or knew about it and didn't tell anybody should also be banned from playing Professional Baseball for life. As Shoeless Joe Jacks was locked out of the Hall of Fame forever, so should any players on the 2017 Houston Astros.
