VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL IS BEING ROCKED BY YET ANOTHER STEROID SCANDAL THIS ONE INVOLVING SOME THE GAME'S TOP PLAYERS.

FORMER M-V-P ALEX RODRIGUEZ AND OTHERS ARE BEING LINKED TO THIS SOUTH FLORIDA CLINIC THAT REPORTEDLY DISTRIBUTED THE BANNED SUBSTANCES.

THE MIAMI NEW TIMES SAYS IT HAS OBTAINED FILES SHOWING RODRIGUEZ PURCHASED HUMAN GROWTH HORMONES AMONG OTHER THINGS.

THE NEW YORK YANKEES SLUGGER IS CURRENTLY RECOVERING FROM HIP SURGERY, HAS ADMITTED USING STEROIDS FROM 2001-03 BUT INSISTED HE STOPPED AFTER THAT.

THE REPORT ALSO NAMES MELKY CABRERA, GIO GONZALEZ, BARTOLO COLON AND NELSON CRUZ.

CABRERA THEN OF THE GIANTS AND COLON OF THE A'S WERE BOTH SUSPENDED FOR 50 GAMES LAST SEASON FOR VIOLATING THE LEAGUES DRUG POLICY.

GONZALEZ WHO PITCHES FOR WASHINGTON HAS ALREADY DENIED THE REPORT.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL SAYS IT IS "EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED TO LEARN OF POTENTIAL LINKS BETWEEN PLAYERS AND THE USE OF PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING SUBSTANCES" AND HAS LAUNCHED ITS OWN INVESTIGATION.
