Steroids part of baseball fabric, fitness guru says

Tuesday, March 01, 2005

Strength and conditioning guru Mack Newton has worked with Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

He has been around baseball teams, working for the Oakland Athletics and Chicago Cubs. He will not point fingers. But he's not naive, and he said anabolic steroids have been part of the baseball fabric since at least the 1970s.

He said he'd go to spring training camps with teams and try to educate players on the harmful effects.

Newton said he has seen a player go from weighing 215 pounds at one spring training camp to 250 the next year.

Newton said Canseco never admitted to using steroids when Newton worked with the A's and their strength and conditioning coach, Dave McKay, in the late 1980s.

Newton still keeps a 1990 book, Strength Training For Baseball, on which McKay and Canseco collaborated. Canseco discouraged the use of steroids in the 1990 book, in contrast to his stance in his current tell-all.
