WASHINGTON, DC - Jan. 15, 2008: Former Sen. George Mitchell, who released a scathing report last month on Major League Baseball's abuse of steroids, human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances, takes his seat for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Mitchell's report. Under pressure from lawmakers, Major League Baseball officials on Tuesday agreed to make more changes to the sportÕs antidrug policies before 2008 spring training begins. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders said they were encouraged by the commitment. It came after a plea from former Sen. George Mitchell Ñ the investigator who revealed the breadth and depth of baseballÕs drug problems Ñ for Congress to Òencourage and allowÓ the league to clean up its own act.
