US Attorneys have a list of 104 baseball players who failed a 2003 drug test, even though the players' union vowed to keep those names secret. The union has contested the Feds' search, but the list could become public in a matter of weeks, reports the New York Times.
Baseball performed the 2003 test to see if steroid use was widespread, not to name names. When more than 5% of players tested positive, the league and union agreed to penalty testing, but MLB held on to the results. Feds eventually tracked them down through the BALCO case, and hope the list will help them nab more steroid dealers.
