WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Former All-Star second baseman Chuck Knoblauch has agreed to appear before the U.S. congressional committee looking into doping in baseball.
The U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and government reform Committee issued a subpoena to Knoblauch after he didn't respond to an invitation to appear before the committee. But Monday, Knoblauch said he would show up and the subpoena was withdrawn.
He is expected to give a disposition or transcribed interview by the end of the week.
Knoblauch was one of about 90 players named in a baseball-produced report alleging wide-spread use of performance-enhancing substances.
All of those men were named in the baseball doping report. Clemens has vehemently denied use of any such substances. Knoblauch told The New York Times he was "bewildered" that he was include in the report and said, "I have nothing to defend and I have nothing to hide at the same time."
