NEW YORK (WFAN) — Former New York Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch says baseball’s Steroids Era really wasn’t as bad as the narrative might suggest.
Players weren’t throwing around performance-enhancing drugs willy-nilly in the clubhouse. In fact, Knoblauch says he never saw anybody doing anything, despite being an HGH user himself at the tail end of his career.
“It wasn’t like it’s being characterized,” Knoblauch told WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Wednesday. “If somebody was doing something, it was definitely behind the scenes. I can only talk about my own experience and I didn’t see that. If people were doing it, it was hidden, it was on their own agenda or whatever.
“But it’s kind of a shame that it’s labeled that way because there was a lot of good baseball played.”
