(11:49 DC time). Bud Selig on the stand. He says that he initiated the Mitchell probe because he has nothing to hide. He points out steroid violations at all levels of baseball have decreased. Selig is deeply saddened by the behavior of the players. (interesting)
Don Fehr's turn to testify. He offers up the successes of testing, although he admits he underestimated the PED problem in baseball. He wants to discuss HGH in depth. Talks about banning the substance, and agreeing to begin testing as soon as a valid lab test can be developed. He talks about non-analytic positives.
Fehr is asking for more federal regulation of HGH, and applauds Rep Lynch's bill, as well as Biden and others introducing legislation.
Fehr is calling the Mitchell Report as 'management only'. Fehr says steroid use is on the wane -- note his voice wavers on this point. He wants more time to discuss the issue.
Fehr gets a shot in at Selig talking of 'unilateral implementation' of anti-doping measures. He doesn't want public disclosure of accused players.
Fehr now taking questions. He expresses irritation about the extend of the notification (although Mitchell explained he sent letters, to which the MLBPA discouraged replys)
