Statement from WADA Director General David Howman
WADA commends the decision of Major League Baseball (MLB) to seek suspension of an estimated 20 players associated with a performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) scandal involving a Miami-area clinic.
More and more, information and evidence gathered in the investigative process is proving an effective means of uncovering doping in sport. MLB has approached this issue in a professional way and the evidence gathered will undoubtedly be pivotal.
MLB has become a valuable partner to WADA in the fight against doping in sport notably as a contributor to the Agency’s protocols for information sharing, and has developed a robust program over recent seasons that many team sports might usefully replicate.
