Aaron Breaks Silence about Steroids
By The WTMJ News Team
Former Milwaukee Brave and Brewer Hank Aaron, the man who was Major League Baseball's all-time home run leader before Barry Bonds, was scheduled to attend the fellowship open golf tourney this morning to raise money for his Chasing the Dream Foundation.
The Baseball Hall of Famer had not said much about baseball's biggest controversy, but that seems to be changing now.
Aaron is breaking his silence about steroids.
He doesn't take shots at Bonds, the player that replaced him as home run king, but Aaron stresses he has never used the drugs.
Aaron hit 755 homers in more than 23 seasons with the Braves and Brewers, and he says every single one was clean.
"I know i've never taken anything," said Aaron.
"First of all, I didn't make enough money to buy anything. If you made the money I made, you were lucky to take it home and help your kids get groceries.
"Baseball is too big to let one thing happen that overshadow it. I think this too shall pass."
Aaron thinks Commissioner (and former Brewers owner) Bud Selig's current performance-enhancing substance plan will eliminate drugs in baseball in the years to come.
