Former MLB pitcher Jason Grimsley details bleak bout with addiction, profound recovery in new book

Grimsley did everything he possibly could do to survive in the game, taking human growth hormones, steroids, amphetamines – anything he could find to give him an edge.

Unlike thousands of others in the game who were believed to be doing the same thing, he was one of the few who were caught….

Grimsley spoke to federal agents without an attorney for two hours that April day in 2006, and for the next two months the feds kept asking him for names. They wanted the names of players. They wanted trainers. They wanted dealers. And they really wanted Barry Bonds.

The federal agents even asked Grimsley to wear a wire and speak to Bonds, who was ensnared in the BALCO investigation, to try to get him to confess to steroid use. Grimsley refused. His affidavit was unsealed in which he revealed names of players who he suspected might be using, but had no proof.

His home was raided by 13 FBI agents for six hours on June 7, 2006. He requested and was granted his release a day later by the D-backs. His career was over.

MLB announces partnership with drug dealer

Major League Baseball now becomes the first major professional sports league to form a sponsorship agreement with a CBD company. Charlotte’s Web is now the first “Official CBD of Major League Baseball.”  In June 2022, MLB officially opened the category for the league and its Clubs allowing sponsorships with CBD companies that are NSF Certified for Sport®.

“As a leader in the CBD category, with products that provide health and wellness benefits, Charlotte’s Web is a welcome addition to the MLB family, representing a landmark partnership in baseball and sports,” said Noah Garden, MLB Chief Revenue Officer.  “Charlotte’s Web products which receive the NSF Certified for Sport® designation have met the highest safety standards and can be promoted across MLB events and media platforms.  We are excited about the possibilities this partnership offers as CBD becomes a more widely adopted part of the health and wellness regimen of our players and fans.”

What’s next from the mind of Manfred?  An Official Vape Juice of Major League Baseball?  Crack pipe?  Home meth lab?
