NEW YORK (AP) _ Major league baseball hired Deloitte & Touche on Thursday to oversee its memorabilia authentication program, replacing Arthur Anderson.

Arthur Andersen is on trial in Houston for an obstruction charge relating to the shredding of Enron-related documents last year.

As part of the program, Deloitte & Touche representatives will authenticate autographs and game equipment before they leave ballparks. Representatives of Deloitte & Touche will be present at every game.
