Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Grimsley unveiled to federal investigators that he has used illegal performance-enhancing drugs. Thirteen agents searched Grimsley’s house in Scottsdale, Ariz., for six hours Tuesday, according to Internal Revenue Service agent Mark Lessler.
In seeking a judge’s permission for the search, investigators who cracked the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroid scandal said Grimsley initially cooperated in the search. He withdrew his assistance in April, but not before he allegedly made “extensive statements” about illegal drug use, “for the purpose of performance enhancement,” according to the court documents.
This is yet another example of drug abuse in the world of professional sports. Today’s athletes are in an ever-increasing competitive environment with contracts seeing the highest figures in history. I commend Grimsley’s effort to protect himself and the organization, but it is still another loss for the game of Major League Baseball.
Here are some great Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys or Arizona Diamondbacks Hats for sale.
The Baltimore Orioles did squeak by last night but I must admit I'm getting ready to hang up my Baltimore Orioles Jersey for the season. MIGUEL TEJADA had a decent night but we're still barely hanging on to our spot in second to last place. I'll give the Orioles one more week to begin to rebound before I put my Baltimore Orioles merchandise away for the season. Yah I'm a bit of a fair weather fan for this team. At least there are some decent movies this summer.
