MIKE JACOBS HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR HGH USAGE
Tue, 23 Aug 2011 12:44 PM EDT

The minor leaguer for the Colorado Rockies Mike Jacobs has managed to get his name on the list of drug test failures this Thursday by becoming the first ever professional athlete from North America to be suspended for using human growth hormone. Jacobs has been playing for the Rockies who is a Triple A affiliate in Colorado Springs has been suspended for a good 50 games which was effective yesterday. The 30 year old player who plays as a baseman for New York Mets, Kansas City Royals and the Florida Marlins has been unavailable in the major league all this season. According to the Commissioner Jacobs is probably the first athlete in North American professional sport who tested positive for HGH. NFL scores

The other player was Terry Newton who is a British international rugby player who had become the first athlete to be suspended for using HGH just last year. He had admitted to taking the substance and was then placed on a two year ban, Later own Newton had died at age 31 and was found hanging at his home something which the police has ruled as a suicide. Later on in March Patrick Sinkewitz the German rider became the first cyclist to test positive for HGH. NFL odds

“Bud Selig the commissioner for the MLB said We have a program in place and it did what it was supposed to do,” he then added “We don’t duck the issue.”

Later on the Rockies had released Jacobs after his suspension was handed down. NFL spreads

The team’s statement read “We were very disappointed to learn that Mike Jacobs had been suspended after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance,” “The Colorado Rockies have long been committed to eliminating the use of performance-enhancing substances from the game of baseball. We have fully supported the adoption and implementation of the Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association joint drug prevention and treatment program.”

Immediately after Jacobs sent a formal apologetic statement saying “A few weeks ago, in an attempt to overcome knee and back problems, I made the terrible decision to take HGH,”

“I immediately stopped a couple of days later after being tested. Taking it was one of the worst decisions I could have ever made, one for which I take full responsibility. I apologize to my family, friends, the Colorado Rockies organization, Major League Baseball and to the fans. Now, as required by the minor league drug program, I will serve a 50-game suspension. After my suspension is completed, I hope to have the opportunity to continue my career in the game that I love so much.”
