There was a time when Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco were close friends. In fact, they were like brothers – or "Bash Brothers," as they were called in their days with the Oakland Athletics.
Canseco then infamously accused McGwire of being a steroid user in Canseco’s 2005 book, allegations that helped bring McGwire’s baseball world crashing down. McGwire eventually admitted to performance-enhancing drug use, and any hopes of reaching the Hall of Fame have been all but erased.
Canseco is now trying to make good with McGwire. At a recent celebration of the 25th anniversary of Oakland’s 1989 World Series victory, Canseco expressed regret for writing the book and publicly apologized to McGwire.
