Selig Responds To Mitchell Report

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig has seen the Mitchell Report and says he accepts the recommendations of the former senator. In a news conference this afternoon in New York City, Selig said he has already implemented one of the recommendations, regarding advance notice given to clubs for a player to be tested.

Because some of the recommendations require union approval, Selig says he plans to sit down with executives of the Players Association in the near future.

Regarding any discipline of the players named in the report, the
commissioner says he'll take everything on a case by case basis.

Selig says baseball owes it to the fans to make sure the game is clean and vows to continue research with the NFL into how to find a way to detect the use of HGH, human growth hormones.
