The Associated Press reports that every University of Miami baseball player underwent testing recently for performance-enhancing drugs, including human growth hormone.
The testing for HGH is not typical for the school, according to their source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the university has not authorized the information’s release. The school is awaiting the results, the person said. University officials not only took the unusual step of ordering the HGH tests for the players, but said last week that 10,000 tests performed on student-athletes since 2005 resulted in no positive tests for steroid usage.
“There’s a very thorough investigation going on within the program to try to find out what they can find out,” said Miami coach Jim Morris, who could not provide many details of that probe because of university policy. “I feel very sure that our current players are not involved in anything. I think we have a very good system intact. Other than that, the outside, I don’t know what’s going on outside.”Support Billy-Ball.com and the Bill Chuck Files
