Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Miguel Tejada are among those named in the long-awaited Mitchell Report on drug use in baseball.
Clemens and Pettitte are from the Houston area and spent three
seasons together with their hometown Astros. Tejada was traded to
Houston on Wednesday.
Home run king Barry Bonds also shows up in baseball's most infamous lineup since the 1919 Black Sox scandal. Bonds is already under indictment on charges of lying to a federal grand jury about steroids.
Gary Sheffield, Eric Gagne, Troy Glaus, Gary Matthews Junior, Brian Roberts, Paul Lo Duca, Rick Ankiel and Jay Gibbons are among other current players named in the report. Some were linked to Human Growth Hormone, others to steroids.
The report culminates a 20-month investigation by former Senate
Majority Leader George Mitchell. He was hired by commissioner Bud Selig to examine the Steroids Era.
Mitchell says "everyone involved in baseball over the past two decades" -- including commissioners, club officials, the players'
association and players -- shares the responsibility to some extent. He adds that "there was a collective failure to recognize the problem as it emerged and to deal with it early on."
It's uncertain whether the report will result in any penalties or suspensions.
