1/14/10 Mark Grace checks in
Former Cubs first baseman Mark Grace says Mark McGwire wasn’t the only player taking steroids, but didn’t name names, including his former teammate Sammy Sosa.
In an interview on the Dan Patrick radio show, Grace said: “At the time, there was no drug testing for that kind of stuff. You knew it, but it was just common knowledge and you didn’t think twice about it. Mark [McGwire] wasn’t the only guy. Trust me.”
Why didn’t Grace take any PEDs?
“I like my sex life,” Grace said. “I want to be able to perform. It’s kind of funny, but it’s not. That stuff will tear you up as far as your manhood is concerned.”
He doesn’t accept McGwire’s comment that steroids didn’t help him hit home runs.
“That’s a baloney cop-out,” Grace said.
