Baseball fans are not likely to forget 1998, when St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire was duking it out with the Chicago Cubs' Sammy Sosa in a home-run hitfest. McGwire prevailed, breaking baseball's home-run record first. But in January, the other shoe dropped. McGwire admitted that during that season he was using performance-enhancing drugs. "I wish I had never touched steroids," McGwire said in a statement. "It was foolish, and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era." It sounded a bit like a squirmy child's everyone-else-did-it-too apology, but that didn't prevent McGwire from returning to baseball, as a batting coach for his old team.
