Astros' Tejada Due in Federal Court for Sentencing

WASHINGTON (AP) - Houston Astros shortstop Miguel Tejada is due in court for sentencing after pleading guilty to
misleading Congress about performance-enhancers in baseball.
Prosecutors have recommended the five-time All-Star and 2002 AL
MVP get probation and avoid prison time.
Tejada pleaded guilty last month to one count of making
misrepresentations to Congress, which carries a maximum sentence of
a year imprisonment and a fine up to $100,000. Tejada says he
withheld information about an ex-teammate's use of drugs.
