Selig Statement
STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER ALLAN H. SELIG BEFORE THE HOUSE COMMITTEE ON OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNMENT REFORM
JANUARY 15, 2008


I would like to thank the Chairman, the Ranking Member and the Committee members for inviting me to testify today. I have a number of people here with me today that I want to introduce. First, I have our advisor Dr. Gary Green of UCLA, one of America’s leading experts on performance enhancing substances. I also have Steve Pasierb, from the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, Donald Hooton, the head of the Taylor Hooton Foundation, Peter Angelos, the owner of the Baltimore Orioles who has been at the table for our last two rounds of labor negotiations, Randy Levine the President of the New York Yankees, and Stan Kasten, the President of the Washington Nationals.

On March 30, 2006, I asked Senator Mitchell to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the illegal use of performance enhancing substances in Baseball. Mr. Chairman, I decided to do this investigation so that no one could ever say that Baseball had something to hide because I certainly did not. Baseball accepts the findings of this investigation, and Baseball will act on its recommendations.
