Steroid-era confessions and denials
Andy PettitteAndy Pettitte was one of the 89 players listed on the 2007 Mitchell Report as having allegedly used steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs. Two days after the report Pettitte admitted to having taken human growth hormone on two separate occasions, to help him come back from injury. In a press conference before 2008 spring training Pettitte was very remorseful, telling members of the media and his fellow teammates, "I am sorry. I know in my heart why I did things. I know that God knows that. I know that I'm going to have to stand before him one day. The truth hurts sometimes and you don't want to share it. The truth will set you free. I'm going to be able to sleep a lot better."
