Not according to baseball reference.
HR per ball in play is all that really matters. Unless you're arguing that steroids allowed players to make contact more often, not hit the ball farther.
And we're still ignoring the fact that pitchers took steroids too.
My opinion is that steroids allow(ed) guys to recover faster and work out harder. But they didn't improve actual on field performance by a measurable amount.
