Former Mets Employee Sold Steroids To Dozens Of Players

Kirk Radomski, a former New York Mets clubhouse employee, has admitted in federal court that between 1995 and 2005 he sold a smorgasbord of illegal, performance-enhancing drugs to "dozens of current and former Major League Baseball players and associates, on teams throughout Major League Baseball," according to Scott Schools, the U.S. attorney in San Francisco.

According to Newsday, a search of Radomski's Long Island home
yielded "shipping records, financial records, correspondence, and contact lists that detailed Radomski's distribution of drugs to professional ballplayers," officials said. Among the records were evidence of more than 20 occasions in which major league players issued checks to Radomski between 2003-05 for between $200 to $3,500. The names of the players were blacked out in the search warrant.
