Palmeiro denies knowingly taking PEDs

Former Major Leaguer Rafael Palmeiro was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in Lubbock, Texas on Friday, and while there maintained in an interview with ESPN that he never knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs.
Palmeiro, one of only four players in history with 3,000 hits and 500 home runs, tested positive for a banned substance in August 2005 and served a 10-day suspension, the punishment for first-time offenders under the testing rules at the time. Earlier that year, he had testified before Congress that he’d never used steroids.
