Giambi Agrees To Meet With Steroid Investigator

NEW YORK (AP) -- Jason Giambi agreed Thursday to meet with baseball steroids investigator George Mitchell, becoming the first active player known to cooperate with the former Senate majority leader.

The decision by the New York Yankees star came after baseball commissioner Bud Selig requested the meeting and followed long negotiations between lawyers for the players' union and Major League Baseball.

Giambi was quoted in USA Today last month as seeming to admit to steroids use several years ago -- during a period when baseball did not penalize most first-time drug offenders. Selig threatened to discipline Giambi and said he would factor cooperation with Mitchell into his decision.
