A day after controversial Hall of Fame results, Major League Baseball and the Players Union have agreed on expanding the league’s drug testing program, according to sources.The agreement will introduce in-season random blood testing for HGH.
Back in November of 2011, players agreed upon such testing, but only during Spring Training and the offseason. This new agreement, which is expected to be officially announced later today, gives the MLB the toughest drug testing program in the four major sports, as it will test players year-round. The testing is expected to begin this season.
This is no doubt a step in the right direction for Baseball, as the “steroid era” becomes more of a thing of the past.
