Which made Canseco’s second benefactor — Mike Wallace — all the more important. John Hamlin, a producer at 60 Minutes , had gotten a tip about Canseco’s book from a friend at another network.

Sammy Sosa – Not only did this fool cork his bat, but he continues to deny steroid usage despite testing positive in 2003. Sosa had a decorated career, including an MVP, seven All-Star selections, six Silver Slugger awards, and is one of five players to hit over 600 home runs.

He’s another great example of delusional athletes who think they can get away with it and still deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
