September 27, 1998: McGwire Honored With St. Louis Award Following Record-Breaking Season

This is a Sept. 27, 1998, file photo showing St. Louis Cardinals' Mark McGwire acknowledging the crowd at Busch Stadium, during a post-game ceremony where he received The St. Louis Award from the City of St. Louis, after hitting two home runs during the Cardinals' final game, to set a new major league single-season home run record with 70 home runs. McGwire has finally come clean, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998. McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday, Jan. 11, 2010, that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade and he was apologizing. JAMES A. FINLEY / AP
