According to a report in the New York Times, both David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez tested positive for performance-enhancing substances in 2003, according to lawyers familiar with the results.
According to the story, both players were among the list of 104 players who tested positive that season.
Ortiz has said repeatedly that his success has been achieved “the right way,” especially when he set a Red Sox team home run record in 2006 with 54 longballs. The results from the 2003 drug tests were supposed to remain confidential before being destroyed. Neither happened, and federal agents seized the results.
