Mark McGwire has finally decided to talk about the past. In a statement released to the Associated Press on Monday afternoon, the slugger admitted that he used steroids for "nearly a decade," including the 1998 season when he hit a then record-breaking 70 home runs. He apologized for his actions.
"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."
