Report on steroids cites collective failureA blistering report by former senator George J Mitchell has tied 89 Major League Baseball players, including Roger Clemens, to the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs.

This report made use of informant testimony and supporting documents for offering a richly detailed portrait of what Mr. Mitchell described as “baseball’s steroids era.”

Mitchell said there was a collective failure for recognizing the issue as it emerged and recommended that players on the list not be disciplined but baseball should “look ahead to the future” and establish stringent testing.
