MLB to Implement Blood Testing for HGH in Minor Leagues PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 5
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Thursday, 22 July 2010 15:17

PEDs in BaseballTHIS IS BREAKING NEWS....

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig announced today that, effective immediately, Minor League players will be subject to random blood testing for the detection of human growth hormone under Major League Baseball’s Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Major League Baseball is the first United States professional sports league to conduct blood testing.

The National Center for Drug Free Sport, the organization that currently performs all urine sample collections under the Minor League Drug Program, will perform all blood sample collections. All blood samples will be collected post-game from the non-dominant arms of randomly selected non 40-man roster players at select Minor League affiliates. Blood samples will be shipped to the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory in Salt Lake City for analysis.

“The implementation of blood testing in the Minor Leagues represents a significant step in the detection of the illegal use of human growth hormone,” said Commissioner Selig. “The Minor League Program employs state of the art testing procedures and the addition of HGH testing provides an example for all of our drug policies in the future.”

Major League Baseball’s Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, which commenced in June, 2001 and included testing for steroids, was unilaterally implemented by Commissioner Selig. Since Minor League players are not members of the Players Association, blood testing for HGH is not a subject for collective bargaining. The Minor League program has continued to the present, with refinements in the list of prohibited substances, the number of random tests, testing procedures, and the penalties applicable for failed tests.

“This represents a major development in the detection of a substance that has previously been undetectable and been subject to abuse,” said Dr. Gary Green, Medical Director for Major League Baseball.

“The combination of widespread availability and the lack of detection have led to reports of use of this drug amongst athletes. This is the first generation of HGH testing and Major League Baseball will continue to fund the Partnership for Clean Competition for ongoing research to refine testing procedures in this area.”

Minor League Baseball Sees Nearly a Million More Fans through June Over Last Year PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown   
Wednesday, 07 July 2010 11:20

Minor League Baseball clubs attracted nearly 7.9 million fans last month, raising the industry’s season total to 21,453,678 through June.  This season’s total figure represents an increase of 943,704 fans over last year’s total, entering July.

“Minor League Baseball’s increase in year-to-date attendance is significant, given the fact our country continues to battle a sluggish economy and mixed messages about its recovery,” said Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner.  “Through it all, our teams and our fans continue to enjoy America’s Pastime in impressive numbers.  The attendance through the end of June confirms the real value of our product in the eyes of our fans.”

Eleven of the 15 leagues experienced increases at the gate through last month, compared to 2009.  The 176 clubs that charge admission averaged 3,963 fans a game in 5,413 openings through June.

Friday, 14 May 2010 18:27

BrewersThe Milwaukee Brewers announced today a two-year player development contract extension with the Brevard County Manatees of the Class-A Advanced Florida State League through the 2012 season.

“We are pleased to extend our working relationship with the Brevard County Manatees and their management team,” said Brewers Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin. “Brevard County has provided the important resources and environment needed to develop and prepare our young players for future success in the organization and the relationship continues to work well for our needs.”

The Manatees are owned and operated by Central Florida Baseball Group, LLC.

“We are excited for the opportunity to continue our relationship with the Brewers, who are a class act top to bottom,” Central Florida Baseball Group Chairman Dr. Tom Winters said.

The Manatees, located in Viera, Fla., have been a Brewers affiliate since the 2005 season. They play their home games at Space Coast Stadium.

“We are very excited to extend our player development contract with the Milwaukee Brewers,” stated Brevard County Manatees General Manager Kyle Smith. “We are glad to be able to continue grooming the young talent in the Brewers organization and also providing professional baseball to Brevard County.”

Minor League Baseball Sees Over 5.9 Million Fans Through April, Second Highest Ever PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 06 May 2010 11:12

Minor League BaseballMinor League Baseball fans attended games in near record numbers through April, as 5,971,139 patrons accounted for the second highest total through the first month of domestic league play in history. The total through last month is second only to the 6,665,662 fans through April 2008, when Minor League Baseball set its attendance record of over 43.2 million.

The 136 full-season clubs, which includes the 16-team Mexican League that began play in March, averaged 3,818 fans a game in 1,564 openings through last month. The average crowd is up 1.5%, or 57 fans, over last year’s gatherings through April.

“We’re very encouraged by the April attendance numbers,” said Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner. “I think these numbers indicate our fans are eager to enjoy Minor League Baseball in 2010. It also indicates favorable weather, especially in the Northeast corridor, which has been burdened in years past with bad weather to start the season.”

Six of the 11 leagues experienced larger average crowds than they did through April 2009, led by the Carolina League at 21.5% per opening. The Texas (12.5), Eastern (8.1), Mexican (5.1), Midwest (5.1) and Southern (3.5) circuits also showed improvement over last year.

PEDs in BaseballlThe Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that two Minor League players have been suspended following their violations of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Minor League free agent outfielder Benjamin Harrison has received a 100-game suspension for his violations of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, including the purchase and the use of amphetamines. The suspension of Harrison, who was most recently a member of the Florida Marlins organization, will be effective immediately upon his signing with another Major League organization.

According to sources, Harrison's 100 game suspension was based on a non-analytical positive (the purchase of amphetamines), and then tested positive multiple times for amphetamines, hence the 100 game suspension.

Philadelphia Phillies Minor League shortstop Fidel Hernandez has received a 50-game suspension after testing positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The suspension of Hernandez, who is currently on the roster of Single-A Clearwater of the Florida State League, is effective immediately.

To date, there have been 22 minor league drug suspenions, including off-season testing for a total of 1200 games.

Andrew LamboThe Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Los Angeles Dodgers Minor League outfielder Andrew Lambo has received a 50-game suspension after a second positive test for a drug of abuse in violation of the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

In 19 games and 76 ABs, Lambo was hitting .342 with 13 RBIs, 2 HRs, and a .956 OPS.

The Dodgers released a statement shortly after the announcement of Lambo's suspension saying, “The Dodgers are disappointed to learn of this news and we fully support Major League Baseball’s drug policy and its penalties. The organization does not condone the use of any substance not sanctioned by MLB’s medical staff.”

The suspension of Lambo, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts of the Southern League, is effective immediately.

To date, there have been 20 minor league drug suspenions, including off-season testing for a total of 1050 games.
