NEW YORK (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez has admitted using performance-enhancing drugs.
The New York Yankees star responded to Sports Illustrated's report that he tested positive for steroids in 2003 by recording an interview Monday with ESPN.
"I did take a banned substance. For that I'm very sorry and deeply regretful," he said.
