t1_mcgwire New York, Feb 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Jay McGwire has authored a book titled “Mark and Me: Mark McGwire and the Truth behind Baseball’s Worst-Kept Secret.” In this book he reveals the drug habits of the Big Mac. He even reveals the exact dosage and array of the performance enhancing drugs, that Mark used during a three-year stretch. Jay also reveals that Mark started using drugs in 1994.

Just last month Mark had admitted some part of his drug usage, but at the same time he had also sternly denied any sort of link between the anabolic steroids, and the amazing performances that he gave towards the end of his career. He said that he took the drugs only, to help him recover from the injuries. However in the book, Jay alleges that Mark didn’t tell the complete truth in the interviews.

“Mark knew that he was going to get the strength and endurance and size. I know that the main motive to justify taking steroids was healing,” Jay McGwire said in an interview to The Associated Press. “I know that for a fact. But in the long run he knew the strength and the size and endurance would increase. I don’t know why he’s coming across that it was all healing.”
