Format - PDF

    On March 17, 2005, the Committee on Government Reform (the “Committee”)
    held a hearing entitled, “Restoring Faith in America’s Pastime: Evaluating Major League
    Baseball’s Efforts to Eradicate Steroid Use,” to gauge the reality of steroid use in Major
    League Baseball (MLB), to examine MLB’s new drug testing policy, and to educate
    America’s youth on the health ramifications of steroid use. Several current and former
    baseball players were subpoenaed to appear at the hearing. Baltimore Orioles baseball
    player Rafael Palmeiro appeared before the Committee and testified under oath that he
    had never used anabolic steroids. On August 1, 2005, MLB announced that Mr. Palmeiro
    had violated MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program (“MLB’s testing
    program”) and would be suspended for 10 days. It was later confirmed that Mr. Palmeiro
    had tested positive for the steroid stanozolol.
