Mark McGwire Confesses Steroid Use

St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire was hitting the juice back in 1988 when he broke Roger Maris’ home run record.

In a letter he writes, “…“I wish I had never touched steroids … It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era.”

McGwire’s decision to admit using steroids was prompted by his decision to become hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, his final big league team. Tony La Russa, McGwire’s manager in Oakland and St. Louis, has been among McGwire’s biggest supporters and thinks returning to the field can restore the former slugger’s reputation.

“I never knew when, but I always knew this day would come,” McGwire said. “It’s time for me to talk about the past and to confirm what people have suspected.”

More to come as the story evolves.

What do you think about this – is the Hall of Fame out now for McGwire ?
