7:35 am
baseball superstar alex rodriguez has been in controversy throughout his nearly 20-year career. he admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs just two 2001 to 2003 with the new york rangers. he was implicated in the biogenesis scandal. and in august, major league baseball suspended rodriguez for all of this season. a new book takes readers inside the league. it's called "blood sport," alex rodriguez, biogenesis and the quest to end baseball's steroid era. tim elfrink and gus garcia-roberts is here on "cbs this morning." welcome. was it a ride for you? for the first time in the book, you reveal that alex got permission from the league to use performance-enhancing drugs back in 2007. why would they do that when they
7:36 am
allegedly want to end steroid use in baseball, tim? >> this is something that's agreed upon in the drug agreement that baseball operates with. if a player is taking medication that's banned, and they feel they have a sound medical reason to take it. they can apply to a doctor who has been appointed by the commissioner's office and the union. the doctor can agree that the player use that substance for the whole season. what we found surprising in 2007 which is the war that alex had won the mvp award and got a huge contract from the yankees he was given an exemption to use it. and the ceo of major league baseball described as the mother of all anabolic steroids. >> and what did the mlb say then? >> well, he's set to get to exemptions, boast of them to boost testosterone levels.
7:37 am
mlb gave him permission. he used clomid in 2008 which fertility drug used to boost testosterone. it's very rare because the only reason a young male would need that if they used drugs in the past. >> why is that so unusual? >> i think it's a fascinating detail that makes the whole story a little more complicated because, of course, in the biogenesis scandal that came last year, this is the exact same substance that alex was then banned for 211 games after buying it from tony bosch. >> tony bosch was the guy that was giving it to alex. >> wild stories. crazy stuff, including what happened at this miami nightclub. what happened there? >> what happened there, tony bosch would might a-rod at his
7:38 am
mansion and one time he wasn't able to meet him at the mansion. so they arranged to meet at the one of the more chic nightclubs. bosch drew the blood in the bathroom stall. and then he put the vile in his pocket. he went dancing and it shows that these guys were not always the most sleek -- >> that was very reckless. a-rod is the big focus. but you also talk about -- this has been going on for some time. you talk about the race between mark mcgwire and sammy sosa when they were chasing roger's home run. can you talk about that, tim? >> especially because alex rodriguez came into the league as a superstar, during the heart of what we now call the steroid
7:39 am
era. and, you know, in the years after the strike, baseball went on strike in '94, players all scattered. a lot of them went to gyms where steroids were widely available. >> it was a perfect storm of people using steroids? >> it really was a perfect storm. and the commissioner's office, i think in hindsight, was so focused on winning back public support on fixing what happened in the strike, willful or not, they let the explosion of performance-enhancing drug change the way baseball was played for almost 15 years. >> you also point out that everybody has benefitted from the juice, which i think is ironic? >> right. all of these -- many biogenesis players signed contracts after the suspensions. even a-rod, he signed a $275 million extension with the yankees. >> which is still being paid for what -- he comes back in 2015?
7:40 am
>> and the yankees don't have a choice. i think they'll take him back as well. >> well, tim elfrink and gus garcia-roberts thank you. ahead, the colorado seats where it isn't just in the kitchen. the waitresses with an unusual sense of fashion accessory. what are you packing ashley? >> a .357 blackhawk. >> that's coming up on "cbs this morning." add vanishing deductible from nationwide insurance and get $100 off for every year of safe driving. which for you, shouldn't be a problem. just another way we put members first, because we don't have shareholders. join the nation. nationwide is on your side.
