Mark McGwire Emerges As College Hitting Instructor

markmcgwire-38thSince his appearance before a congressional hearing on the use of steroids in baseball, retired slugger Mark McGwire has made few public appearances and rarely spoken with the media.

McGwire took himself out of the public eye after he retired in 2001 with 583 career home runs. That withdrawal became nearly total in 2005, after McGwire — implicated in former teammate Jose Canseco’s book as a steroid user — infamously declined to answer questions from congressmen about whether he used steroids, repeatedly saying, “I’m not here to talk about the past.”

But McGwire has emerged from the ashes to share the hitting skills he aquired from years in the majors with a select group of young major leagures and college players alike.
