I never used steroids, says former Braves sluggerDavid Justice, the former Braves slugger, has vehemently denied making use of injected steroids and remarked that he has his fear of needles.

This statement by Justice was in wake of remarks by Kirk Radomski before George Mitchell that he sold human growth hormone to Justice. The revelation was made when Mitchell was in charge of the investigation about use of performance enhancing drugs in baseball.

A box of HGH was given to Justice during an airport ride, Radomski told ESPN. The box was given after Justice finished playing for the New York Yankees in the 2000 World Series.
