Mitchell Backs Up MLB Steroid Report

They are all-stars, fan favorites, and even future Hall-of-Famers, all of them named in a 400-page report detailing the so-called "steroid era" in baseball.

Former U.S. Senator, George Mitchell authored the report after conducting a 20-month investigation.

He spoke about the report Dec 14.

"There's direct eyewitness statements by participants. There are checks, there are money orders, there are telephone calls, and there are many admissions. At least 11 players admitted to us that they did, in fact, purchase steroids from one of the witnesses, as he said they had. So, I think it's quite wrong to say there's no concrete evidence. There's several hundred pages of evidence," stated George Mitchell, the MLB steroids investigator.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says he expects discipline to be handed down quickly to at least some of the players and other MLB employees named in the report.

President of the Players Association Don Fehr says the organization had not had a chance to conduct a thorough review of the report.

Fehr said the investigation resulted from a unilateral decision by Selig, and the union was not consulted.
