Barry Bonds' personal trainer told federal agents he gave steroids to several baseball players, according to documents released Tuesday.
No players were identified in the documents and it was unclear whether the trainer, Greg Anderson, gave specific names to the federal agents.
Anderson was one of four men charged last week in a steroid-distribution ring that allegedly supplied athletes with banned substances. All four
pleaded innocent. No athletes have been charged.
Federal officials released two affidavits Tuesday that supported search warrants used in raids on Anderson's home in September.
"Inside Anderson's residence, agents found steroids, syringes and other paraphernalia associated with steroid distribution activities," the
documents said. "In addition, agents found files identifying specific athletes. These files contained calendars, which appear to contain references to
daily doses of steroids and growth hormones."
The new documents say Anderson initially denied distributing steroids in discussions with federal agents but later said he sometimes "gave" steroids
to people he knew.
"Upon further questioning, Anderson admitted that he had given steroids to several professional baseball players," the documents say.
