MLB is stepping it up a notch in their battle against PEDs
They are the first major American sports league to do so.
The testing will be random and unannounced.
This is a huge step for MLB. After years of virtually ignoring performance enhancing drugs altogether, they're now cracking down on them to an unprecedented level.
HGH is thought to help players recover faster from injuries, but is also used with the belief that it helps their daily endurance and decrease the effects of the daily grind of a 162-game season.
Some people also believe that HGH can reduce fat and increase lean muscle mass, but that hasn't been proven.
We'll see if certain players' performance takes a dip once testing begins, or if anyone gets caught this year.
Do you think this was a good move by Major League Baseball?
