ESPN: South Florida is Baseball’s ‘Ground Zero’ for PEDs
After state officials have been cracking down the past couple of years on the explosion of South Florida clinics dubbed pills mills, where pain drugs were distributed with little regulation, the Miami to Boca Raton stretch has been listed as ground zero in another drug front.
Performance-enhancing drugs, or PEDs.
According to ESPNs Outside the Lines, Major League Baseball security officers have been spending considerable time in South Florida.
Because of the number of clinics, the MLB investigation is looking into several potential drug suppliers or networks, not a single source, ESPN reported. The ongoing investigation could take well into the upcoming baseball season to complete, sources said, and officials remain unclear of the number of players that eventually may be involved.
