New Times Writers to Host Reddit AMA on Biogenesis Doping Scandal at 10 A.M.
One day after Tony Bosch was arrested for illegal steroid distribution, the reporter who broke the story on A-Rod's doping scandal, Tim Elfrink, will be hosting a Reddit AMA. Like many illustrious men before him -- including the man with two penises, former New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller, and actor Woody Harrelson -- the managing editor of our sister paper will be fielding questions on the internet's front page.
Elfrink will be posting alongside Gus Garcia-Roberts, a former New Times reporter who co-authored Blood Sport, a book on Biogenesis that's currently available in bookstores and airports across the country.
The book started as a New Times cover story in January of last year. The story about Tony Bosch's anti-aging clinic got 15 ballplayers suspended and A-Rod banned from 211 games. The piece snowballed into a three-part series that won the George Polk Award and was a finalist for Harvard's Goldsmith prize. About a month after it became a full-length book, Tony Bosch was charged by the feds with giving away human growth hormone like candy.
Click here later this morning to ask Elfrink and Garcia-Roberts any burning questions you might have about performance-enhancing drugs in the MLB, doping at the University of Miami, and how the problem has trickled down into high school sports.
