Jose Conseco Admits to Using Anabolic Steroids & Administering Them To Several Other Players.
In 2005, Canseco published his tell-all book titled “Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big.” In his book, Canseco admitted to his own steroid use while also specifically naming teammates who had taken performance-enhancing drugs, claiming to have personally injected many of them. Canseco’s book became a New York Times bestseller and led many of his former teammates to be called to testify before various House committees.
Canseco’s post-baseball life has become something of a sideshow. He fought former child star Danny Bonaduce (who was also accused of using muscle enhancers and anabolic steroids) in January 2009, with the fight ending in a draw.
He has been arrested twice, once for aggravated assault following a brawl outside a Miami Beach nightclub, the other time for attempting to bring a fertility drug across the U.S.-Mexican border. In May 2008, his house was put into foreclosure. Canseco says that his two divorces cost him between $7 or $8 million dollars each.
