As reported by Houston Chronicle's Richard Justice:

"Commissioner Fay Vincent sent the clubs a memo in 1991 reminding them that players were forbidden from taking any illegal substance. He specifically mention [sic] steroids in the memo and encouraged the clubs to take a get-tough policy on players thought to be using steroids. What could a team have done if it suspected a player of using steroids? Probably nothing.

Vincent simply wanted to be on the record as letting the clubs know that steroid use was against the rules and that they shouldn't be afraid to confront a player. There was no testing for steroids until 2003 (after being part of the 2002 labor agreement). The notion that Bonds wasn't breaking any rules is ridiculous. He was. He knew he was."
