Major League Baseball has issued a statement regarding comments made by long-time big league pitcher Curt Schilling, who said members of the (Red Sox) organization encouraged him to use performance-enhancing drugs in 2008.
“At the time of the incident in question in 2008, the Boston Red Sox immediately reported the allegations to Major League Baseball as required by our investigative protocols. Once the Red Sox reported the matter, Major League Baseball assumed sole responsibility for the investigation. The Club handled the matter consistent with all MLB rules and requirements and in a manner that was above reproach.
“Major League Baseball thoroughly investigated the allegations and considers the matter closed.”
