Now rumors have been going on for years that he was drugged up on steroids. This could ruin his chances for induction into the Hall of Fame. When ESPN deportes asked him about steriods, Sosa responded with:
“I will calmly wait for my induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Don’t I have the numbers to be inducted?“
“I always played with love and responsibility and I assure you that I will not answer nor listen to rumors.
“If anything ugly comes up in the future, we will confront it immediately, but with all our strength because I will not allow anybody to tarnish what I did in the field.“
You be the judge. It isn’t like he hasn’t cheated before. Remember the corked bat incident?
