Biogenesis founder Tony Bosch surrendering to DEA on steroid distribution charges

It has been a while since the steroid problem in Major League Baseball has reared its ugly head in some form or fashion, but it has once again on Tuesday morning with the news that Biogenesis clinic founder Tony Bosch will surrender to the DEA on charges of conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids.

This news coming directly from ESPN reporter T.J. Quinn.

As you’ll remember, Bosch was at the forefront of the Major League Baseball steroid investigation a few years back for being linked to some of the biggest names not just in the game of baseball, but in other sports as well, including Olympic Track and Field. But mainly the controversy surrounded the names of baseball players, most notably Barry Bonds.

During the steroid investigation, Bosch was more than cooperative with everyone involved by naming most of the clients that he had dealt with over the years, and as Quinn also points out, if he was promised some help down the road should he find himself in a situation like he does today, it’s time to call in that favor.

Although, depending on what these charges are outlined as, there might not be any helping him.
