MLB Players Warned About Deer Antler Spray

MLB Players Warned About Deer Antler Spray

Major League Baseball has issued a warning to its players  about a deer antler spray used as an alternative to steroids.

The hormone, which was discovered in deer antler velvet, cannot be detected in the conventional urine test administered by the league. This lovely little scientific breakthrough is made in part from a banned chemical known for its muscle buiding and fat cutting benefits, according to SI.com. 

It goes by the name IGF-1 or insulin-like growth factor. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is the component that gets the artificial bulkiness ball rolling, but IGF-1 does most of the work. 

 So, these meatheads, having been turned away from horse tranquilizers and testicle-shrinking he-man pills, are ingesting the byproduct of the hormones produced by the antlered critters we love to chase.


What will they do next?


 They'd probably suckle milk from a momma grizzly if it helped them hit the ball a little farther. After all, chicks dig the long ball.

Would you use this deer antler spray?
