Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire and other stars testify on Capitol Hill about performance-enhancing drugs in professional baseball. Also on hand was former star Jose Canseco, who says illegal steroids have been widely used in the sport. Lawmakers questioned players, league officials and others for more than 11 hours.
