Rodriguez says sorry

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez apologised for "the mistakes" he made that led to his suspension for taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Rodriguez, 39, made his apology in a hand-written statement. Rodriguez first confessed in 2009 to using steroids in 2001, '02 and '03. In 2013, Rodriguez was found to be using PEDs. He was ultimately suspended for the entire 2014 season.
