VIERA, Fla. (AP) -In his first words about his inclusion in the Mitchell Report, Nationals catcher Paul Lo Duca apologizes for what he called his mistakes in judgment.
His apology comes in a statement handed out by the team on Saturday.
Lo Duca is one of more than 80 players cited in baseball investigator George Mitchell's report on drug use in the sport. The report came out in December, two days after the Nationals announced signing Lo Duca to a $5 million, one-year contract.
