This is the first I'm hearing of a Sosa positive test. What is this all about?
In 2003, the MLBA agreed to allow players to be anonymously tested to determine the amount of steroid abuse in baseball. About 105 players tested positive, but the results were supposed to be sealed and remain anonymous forever, but it was leaked during some other BALCO-related investigations (I think). Only a handful of the players who tested positive for that survey have been revealed, but it includes guys like Sosa, A-Rod, Manny Ramirez, and David Ortiz.
