Greenwell Considered Using Steroids In Boston

By

Mike Greenwell spoke to Howard Ulman of the AP about his consideration of steroid use in the late ’80’s.

“I was very, very tempted as a player to do it,” he said yesterday. His wife convinced him not to. “My wife’s a nurse, and basically told me she’d kill me if she caught me doing it,” Greenwell said. “I think there’s many, many players out there that were tempted to do it. Probably if I didn’t have my wife, I would have done it to try to perform at that level.”

Greenwell finished second in MVP voting to Jose Canseco* in 1988.
