Bud Selig will institute random blood testing in the minor leagues
MLB is the first American professional sports league to enact such a strict policy.
Selig said it's "a significant step in the detection of the illegal use of human growth hormone" and an "example for all our drug policies in the future."
The testing won't be used on major league players because it would be subject to collective bargaining by the players' association.
