The Story: In February 2005 Canseco released his autobiography and steroid tell-all, Juiced , Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits, and How Baseball Got Big. In it he described himself as 'the chemist' having experimented on himself for years. He claimed to have educated and personally injected many players including Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi. In his second book, Vindicated , Canseco added Magglio Ordonez to the list of players he had educated and injected with steroids. He also said he introduced Alex Rodriguez to a trainer/PED supplier after Rodriguez had asked where he could get steroids.
Before the start of the 2005 season, Sosa was traded to the Baltimore Orioles . In March 2005, amid growing allegations of steroid use in baseball, he testified at a congressional hearing that he had never used performance-enhancing drugs. After a lacklustre year with the Orioles, Sosa sat out the 2006 season, but he returned to professional play in 2007 as a member of the Texas Rangers. On June 20, 2007, Sosa hit the 600th home run of his career; he was the fifth major leaguer to accomplish that feat. After the 2007 season, he became a free agent but was not signed by a team. In 2009 it was reported that Sosa had tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug six years earlier.
