WASHINGTON (AP) -Former major leaguer Chuck Knoblauch still had not been served with a subpoena by federal marshals as of Friday afternoon, four days after a House committee investigating steroids in baseball issued a demand that he testify at a deposition and a hearing.
Knoblauch, a four-time All-Star who played for the Yankees, Twins and Royals from 1991-02, originally was asked to appear last week for what was supposed to be the first of five depositions or transcribed interviews scheduled by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Those sessions are in preparation for a hearing Feb. 13, when the witnesses are scheduled to include seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens and his former personal trainer, Brian McNamee.
When the committee didn't hear from Knoblauch or a representative, it issued a subpoena to force the 1991 AL Rookie of the Year to submit to a deposition next Tuesday.
Knoblauch, Clemens and more than 80 other players were accused of using performance-enhancing drugs in last month's Mitchell Report on baseball's steroids era.
Clemens has been asked to meet with committee staff Feb. 5, two days before McNamee, and their lawyers have said they will appear.
Andy Pettitte, Clemens' friend, teammate and workout partner, is scheduled to appear for a deposition or interview Jan. 30. The date of the appearance for the fifth witness, former New York Mets clubhouse employee Kirk Radomski, is to be determined.
