In an explosive interview, the self-described nutritionist who says he supplied New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez with performance enhancing drugs, detailed the secret regimen he claims to the ball player employed sometimes while on the field.
Rodriguez denies the allegations by Anthony Bosch, and his lawyer is filing a federal lawsuit today against Major League Baseball in an effort to overturn a 162-game suspension levied by an independent arbitrator.
Bosch told "60 Minutes" that Rodriguez took numerous performance enhancing drugs, sometimes just minutes before a game or while in the field.
In the interview Bosch alleges:
The allegations are reminiscent of those leveled against other big-name athletes who were caught doping.
All-Star outfielder Barry Bonds was convicted in 2011 of obstructing a federal investigation into BALCO, a company found supplying PEDs to pro baseball players. In leaked grand jury testimony, Bonds allegedly admitted to using "the cream" and "the clear," two kinds of PED.
Six-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who for years denied using PEDs, even after most of the members of his cycling team confessed, finally admitted to doping last year. Armstrong confessed to using the banned substance EPO, taking testosterone and even undergoing blood transfusions between 1999 and 2005.
