His voice breaking, McGwire says, “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 personally apologize.
Dang it. And I was at that game when he tied the home run record.
Does anybody want a “Mark McGwire – Heroes Lift Us Up” plaque?
