In an interview in Tuesday's editions of The (Baltimore) Sun, Roberts acknowledged that he used steroids ``once'' in 2003. However, he said he hadn't used steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs since.
In a statement he issued to The (Baltimore) Sun, Roberts said that after the single injection he immediately realized that it was not what he ``stood for'' or anything he wanted to continue doing. He said he's sorry he did it and said he regrets making what he says was a ``terrible decision.''
Roberts was named in the Mitchell Report because former Orioles teammate Larry Bigbie told investigators Roberts had told him he used steroids ``once or twice'' in 2003.
