New York Yankees third-baseman Alex Rodriguez issued a handwritten apology letter for his mistakes that led to his suspension for performance-enhancing drug use. Per ESPN:

"I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season," Rodriguez said in the statement. "I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major League Baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association and you, the fans, I can only say I'm sorry.

"I accept the fact that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that's on me. It was gracious of the Yankees to offer me the use of Yankee Stadium for this apology but I decided the next time I am in Yankee Stadium, I should be in pinstripes doing my job."
Commissioner Bud Selig suspended Rodriguez for 211 games in August 2013.
