Report: Ortiz, Ramirez Tested Positive In 2003

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Times is reporting David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez were among the more than 100 Major League Baseball players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

The report posted on the newspaper's Web site Thursday cites lawyers involved in pending litigation over the testing results. They spoke anonymously because the information is under seal by a court order.

Ortiz declined comment to the paper. In 2004, he and Ramirez led the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series championship since 1918.

The results from the 2003 tests were supposed to remain anonymous, but they later were seized by federal agents. Alex Rodriguez admitted using performance-enhancing drugs after he was linked to the 2003 list.
