High and Tight:

House Government Reform Chairman Tom Davis (R.-Va.) has fired a fastball at the chin of Major League Baseball: This week his committee subpoenaed 11 MLB players, former players and officials to testify March 17 about MLB’s steroid scandal. The committee also subpoenaed some MLB records relating to drug testing.

Subpoenas went to Players Association Executive Director Donald Fehr, MLB Executive Vice President Robert Manfred, MLB Executive Vice President Sandy Alderson, San Diego Padres General Manager Kevin Towers, Yankee star Jason Giambi, Orioles sluggers Sammy Sosa and Rafael Palmeiro, Red Sox World Series pitching ace Curt Schilling, White Sox designated hitter Frank Thomas and retired sluggers Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco (who recently published a tell-all book about steroid use in baseball). Canseco, Fehr and Manfred, who had already agreed to testify, received “friendly” subpoenas. But baseball is fighting the other subpoenas.
