MLB to Test for HGH All SeasonPARADISE 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
changes to baseball's drug agreement, the World Anti-Doping Agency laboratory
will keep records of each player.
