Todd said;

“Obviously the last place I want to be on the first day of spring training is here, talking about a mistake I made last week. I got behind the wheel of my truck after I had drank. All I can do now is apologize and ask for forgiveness. I spoke to my teammates today and they were very supportive. I’m very grateful to my wife, my family, my teammates and the Colorado Rockies organization for their support. I am determined to learn from my mistakes, and I’ve gotten help.”

Todd Helton didn’t explain what kind of ‘help’ he has received. Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, “I think that it’s important he had an opportunity to put some closure to the whole deal. We’ve all needed a little grace from time to time. He stepped up, he faced the music and now it’s time to move on and play baseball.”
