View Full Version : Report: McGwire avoiding MLB investigation

Former All-Star Mark McGwire is refusing to cooperate with former Sen. George Mitchell's investigation into performance-enhancers in baseball, The New York Daily News reported Saturday.

The former slugger has refused to meet with Mitchell and his investigators, a source told the newspaper.

"They're getting no cooperation from McGwire," the source told the newspaper. "He wants nothing to do with this. He doesn't want to talk to them. He doesn't want his people to talk to them."

Unlike the federal prosecutors who recently investigated tax evasion and perjury allegations against Barry Bonds, Mitchell can neither issue a subpoena that would compel McGwire to talk nor threaten the embattled ex-slugger with prison time, the Daily News said.

"He wants nothing to do with their probe," the source added of McGwire.
Mitchell, the former Senate majority leader, was appointed in March by commissioner Bud Selig to lead the league's investigation into steroids in the sport.

The legal supplement androstenedione was found in McGwire's locker eight years ago, the season he broke Roger Maris' season home run record. When asked about steroids during a congressional hearing in 2005, McGwire said "I am not here to talk about the past."

Hopefully McGwire and Rafiel Palmiero will never get into the Hall of Fame.
