Ex-Baseball Star Charged with Steroid Use

Another twist to baseball’s continuing steroid madness: Jay McGwire is proposing a new book that says his estranged brother, baseball great Mark McGwire, did in fact use steroids. In the proposal, Jay alleges that he introduced Mark to performance-enhancing drugs at a bodybuilding competition in 1994 and that Mark used Deca-Durabolin. “I became the first person to inject him, like most first-timers he couldn't plunge in the needle himself,” Jay writes. ESPN.com notes that the brothers “reportedly haven’t spoken to each other in years.” On the sports blog Deadspin—where the story broke—Jay’s ex-fiancée is corroborating his claims.
