A Few Names Already Released In Mitchell Steroid Report

NEW YORK (AP) _ Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Miguel Tejada
(mee-GEL' tay-HAH'-dah) are among those named in the long-awaited
Mitchell Report on drug use in baseball.
There's an All-Star roster linked to steroids and other
performance-enhancing drugs that put a question mark next to some
of baseball's biggest moments.
Home run king Barry Bonds, already under indictment on charges
of lying to a federal grand jury about steroids, also shows up in
baseball's most infamous lineup since the Black Sox scandal.
The report culminates a 20-month investigation by former Senate
Majority Leader George Mitchell. He was hired by commissioner Bud
Selig (SEE'-lihg) to examine the Steroids Era.
It's uncertain whether the report will result in any penalties
or suspensions.
Selig plans to hold a news conference later this afternoon to
address the report.
