Description
Kirk Radomski was an average guy with an extraordinary secret. But when he pled guilty to distributing steroids, his world imploded.At fifteen, Radonsky began working at Shea Stadium, where he would stay employed for a decade. His first priority as a batboy, and later as a clubhouse attendant, was to make sure all the players had whatever they wanted or needed - he washed their uniforms, packed up their homes at the end of the season, and kept their secrets both on and off the field. At the end of the 1986 season, he even led the world champions down Broadway in their victory parade.But as Radomski got older, the favors and duties he did for some of the Mets became more serious. He created training routines, answered questions about dietary supplements and nutrition - and showed players how to get around drug testing. Gradually he became the guy players went to for anabolic steroids and human growth hormones. By the time the feds knocked on his door, Radomski was known to every major league team as "Murdoch" - and had at least one client on each roster.Threatened by jail time - after being identified to the government by some of the very players he helped - Radomsky cooperated and provided many of the names and dates in the groundbreaking and controversial Mitchell Report. Now, he's ready to share his side of the steroids scandal with the world.
