SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -George Mitchell set a Saturday deadline for evidence in his steroids probe as the sentencing of a former Mets clubhouse attendant and admitted steroids peddler was delayed until Dec. 14 so he can continue to assist federal prosecutors and baseball officials with their investigations.
Mitchell set the deadline to conduct interviews and receive documents and other information for his investigation, CBS News reported on its Web site Wednesday.
A baseball lawyer told team officials last month to be prepared for Mitchell, a former Senate Majority Leader and director of the Boston Red Sox, to issue his report by the end of the year.
Mitchell's staff sent lawyers representing some players with ties to the BALCO investigation letters that notified them of the deadline, CBS said, citing a lawyer who received the letter.
Kirk Radomski, the former Mets' clubhouse worker, pleaded guilty to steroids dealing in April and was to have been sentenced Friday. As part of his plea agreement, Radomski agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball steroids investigator George Mitchell.
Radomski turned over numerous documents identifying his many baseball customers, a list Mitchell is expected to release in a report to club owners next month.
Radomski's lawyer didn't return a telephone call Wednesday. The U.S. attorney's office in San Francisco declined to comment.
