Ex-Major Leaguer Jim Parque Admits PED Use

In this remarkable article in today's Sun-Times, Jim Parque, who pitched for the White Sox in their AL Central championship season in 2000, admits to using HGH after he hurt his shoulder in that year's ALCS.

Parque, who pitched collegiately for UCLA and was a supplemental 1st-round pick in 1997, was never the same; he pitched poorly for the White Sox in 2001 and 2002 and was finally released, and after an attempted comeback for Lou Piniella's Tampa Bay team in 2003, was out of baseball at age 27.

The article is a remarkably honest and candid portrayal of why athletes turn to PED's. It is must reading.
