A-Rod admits to using steroids
New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez came clean about allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs today.
The highest paid baseball player in history told ESPN said he used steroids “for a period of time” and only when he was with the Texas Rangers. Rodriguez played for Texas from 2001-2003 before being traded to the Yankees.
“When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure,” Rodriguez said. “I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me, and I needed to perform – and perform at a high level – every day.”
He went on to apologize, saying he was young, naiive and stupid at the time.
