A-ROD ADMITTED STEROID USE TO FEDS

November 6, 2014

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez admitted to federal Drug Enforcement Administration investigators in January that he’d used steroids — supplied by the owner of a now-closed Florida clinic.

Rodriguez was reportedly given immunity in return for the information saying he’d used banned substances between late 2010 and October 2012, which were supplied by Anthony Bosch, the then-owner of the Biogenesis of America clinic.

Rodriguez has repeatedly denied publicly that he’d used performance-enhancing drugs since joining the Yankees in 2004.

 

Rodriguez was suspended by baseball for all of last season for PED violation. He initially sued in federal court against the suspension, then withdrew the suit and accepted the penalty.
