Mark McGwire says telling family of steroids use was difficult
His voice breaking, McGwire said, “It's the first time they've ever heard me, you know, talk about this. I hid it from everybody.”
During a 20-minute phone call Monday, McGwire says he called Commissioner Bud Selig and Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa earlier in the day to apologize personally.
McGwire says that when he used steroids, he never imagined he would have to talk about it to the national media.
