Mark McGwire Admits using Steroids

CNN reports: Former Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire admits using steroids in 1998 when he broke Roger Maris' home run mark. This came shortly after McGwire fell short of Hall of Fame this past week.

Former A's slugger failed in his fourth year as candidate to be voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday. McGwire received 128 votes (23.7 %), 10 more than last year and matching the total from his first two times on the ballot. Eighth on the career list with 583 homers, he has been stigmatized since evading questions from Congress in 2005 about steroids use.

McGwire, who broke Roger Maris' single-season home run record while with the St. Louis Cardinals, was hired in October as the Cardinals' hitting coach. He is a member of the 500-HR club, finished his career with 1,414 RBIs and .394 career on-base percentage.
