WADA Supports MLB in Seeking Suspension of Players

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.
