Statement from Matt Herges regarding the Mitchell Report02/13/2008 1:22 PM ET
Matt Herges would like to make the following statement in response to the allegations against him in the Mitchell Report: Several years ago I made a poor decision rather than trusting in the abilities the Lord has blessed me with. With great insecurity I chose to cross the line and briefly use performance enhancing substances. I have no excuse for my actions. Words cannot describe how remorseful I am. Beginning with my wife, Jane, my children, family and friends, I would like to apologize to all those I have hurt including the fans of Major League Baseball. I have never used performance enhancing substances while wearing the Rockies uniform, but I want to apologize to the Rockies organization and their fans as well. I cannot adequately express the grace and forgiveness that I have received. My hope is that young athletes will not repeat my mistake, but will be secure enough to pursue their dreams without the use of drugs of any kind. Matt Herges
