OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jose Canseco says he was nervous and scared about showing up to the reunion for the 1989 World Series champion Oakland Athletics this weekend.
Until Friday, Canseco had not been back to the Coliseum since his playing days ended and he wrote his infamous book that alleged rampant use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout baseball. The 50-year-old slugger says he's received a positive reception from most of his former teammates.
But the one person Canseco would most like to see, Mark McGwire, couldn't attend. Canseco's former ''Bash Brother'' is now the hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were playing at St. Louis.
Canseco reiterated that he regrets writing the book, which most notably accused McGwire of using performance-enhancing drugs. McGwire has since admitted to using them.
