Senator George Mitchell does not advocate imposing punishment on the 75 players named in his investigative report on drug usage in Major League Baseball. He said over half of the players mentioned no longer play baseball and couldn’t be punished anyway.
“I suggest the commissioner forego disciplinary action with the exception if the conduct is so severe that it impacts the integrity of the game,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Mitchell said
In such cases, Mitchell says Commissioner Bud Selig should impose the discipline he sees fit. Mitchell said the investigation was not aimed at Barry Bonds. With Bonds, well as with, Roger Clemens, who is mentioned prominently in the report, Mitchell did not endorse keeping either out of the Hall of Fame.
He said that was beyond his scope of responsibility and for others to decide.
