SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Colorado first baseman Todd Helton has apologized for his drunken driving arrest, saying on Sunday following the Rockies' first full-squad workout at spring training that he had never done it before. 

Helton acknowledged he got behind the wheel after drinking. He asked for forgiveness, and also addressed teammates. 

Manager Walt Weiss and several coaches watched as Helton fielded questions for nearly 10 minutes. 

The longtime face of the franchise, Helton was arrested early on Feb. 6 in the Denver suburb of Thornton and charged with driving under the influence and careless driving.
