Expoter Alex Rodriguez stated that having used steroids during his 23-year career in the majors cost him millions of dollars as well as the possibility of not entering the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.
Rodriguez, who finished his career with 699 home runs and is now an analyst on a television network, said that he feels “frustrated” when he looks at the “Indisputable” program of the Audience Network, which will air on October 18. to the past.
The New York Yankees’ superstar said “when you have a contract for hundreds of millions of dollars, you can literally sit on the couch and get fat … but I made a mistake that cost me over 40 million dollars , my reputation, and perhaps my entry into the Hall of Fame, among many other things. ”
In the same interview, Rodriguez acknowledged that he spent whole nights thinking about how he got into that problem. “I remember that I was sitting until 4 or 5 am, I did it a hundred nights, crying and thinking” How did I do it? I am the only idiot who has the aces in his hand and who discovers how to lose ” .
He said one of the more complicated parts was when he had to face his daughters Natasha and Ella, although he had the support of his ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.
“I remember telling Cynthia: When I talk to the girls, they’ll listen to me but they’ll come back to see you, and chances are I’m not going to beat first base because I’m going to start crumbling.”
Rodriguez played for the Seattle Mariners, the Texas Rangers and the Yankees, with whom he won the 2009 World Series.
