Former MVP's, All-Stars on Steroid List

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Associated Press has learned that George Mitchell's report on drugs in baseball will finger MVPs and All-Stars and will call for beefed-up testing by an outside agency.

Mitchell plans to release the long-awaited report tomorrow at a 2 p.m. (Eastern) news conference. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig (SEE'-lihg) will hold a separate news conference two and a-half hours later.

Two sources with knowledge of the findings say the report will not address amphetamines, which have long been recognized as part of the drug culture in baseball.

Once source says the report will include names of 60-to-80 players linked to performance-enhancing substances and more information that exposes "deep problems" in a drug culture that plagues the sport.

The full report, which the sources have not read, totals 304 pages plus exhibits.

None of the players names have been leaked out.
