The Yankees player apologized for past drug use in a news conference Tuesday.
WiredPRNews.com – Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez offered an apology for his past drug use in a news conference Tuesday. As reported by Reuters, the baseball player spoke at a nationally televised news conference about recent revelations that he used performance enhancing drugs.
Rodriguez is quoted in the report as stating his intentions for being at the press conference were to “tell the truth and apologize to my teammates and baseball fans everywhere.” He further stated in regards to a 2007 interview with Katie Couric in which he denied having taken any performance enhancing drugs, “I reached out to her about 10 days ago. When you’re in denial, when you’re not being honest with yourself, it’s hard to be honest with Katie.”
Rodriguez began playing with the New York Yankees in 2004, after being traded by the Texas Rangers.
