HPAC issues statement regarding recent media reports

NEW YORK -- The Health Policy Advisory Committee ("HPAC"), the joint committee established pursuant to the Joint Drug Agreement in Major League Baseball, today issued the following statement:

"Recent media reports suggesting either that Miguel Tejada may have distributed anabolic steroids to another player, or that another player has claimed this to be the case are simply incorrect. There is no evidence whatsoever supporting any claim that Miguel Tejada has ever provided any illegal substance of any kind to any player. The media speculation, accordingly, is simply incorrect.”
