FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Marwin González has become the first batter from the 2017 Houston Astros team that won the World Series to publicly apologize for his role in the sign-stealing scandal. González addressed the subject upon reporting to spring training with the Minnesota Twins, his current club. González says he's “remorseful for everything that happened” that season. The multi-positional player had the best year of his career in 2017. Major League Baseball's investigation into the sign-stealing system resulted in penalties for the Astros organization and the firing of their general manager and manager.
