MLB to Test for HGH All Season

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) -

Major League Baseball will test for human growth hormone throughout the regular

season and will step up efforts to track the use of artificial testosterone.

Players were subject to blood testing for HGH during spring training last year,

and the agreement between management and the players' association expands that

throughout the season. Those are in addition to urine tests for other

performance-enhancing drugs.

Under the

changes to baseball's drug agreement, the World Anti-Doping Agency laboratory

will keep records of each player.
