Ortiz Still Awaiting Word on Positive Drug test

By  | 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is still waiting for additional information regarding a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

Before Wednesday night's game at Tampa Bay, Ortiz again said he will share the information, including what was in his system, with the Red Sox and the public.

The list of 104 major leaguers who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs six years ago is now under court seal.

There were no penalties for a positive test in 2003 - the anonymous tests were conducted to determine if it was necessary to impose mandatory random drug testing across the major leagues in 2004.
