Baseball-KBO set to launch targeted drug testing

South Korean baseball officials could introduce drastic anti-doping protocols next year with a plan to target specific players for drug tests.

The Korean Baseball Organisation (KBO) said players who showed marked statistical improvement would be targeted in a clampdown on drug cheats, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

The KBO currently tests five local players randomly selected from each of the eight ballclubs, plus all foreign players.

League officials said they would begin examining the new testing procedures at the end of the season with players exceeding their career averages set to be selected for testing.

Something that would never happen in MLB, but even if it did, I’m sure WADA would find something about it to complain about.

WADA would not be happy if MLB implemented a system identical to what WADA has, if MLB ran it themselves.

WADA would be happy with *any* system MLB implemented if it were administered by WADA (for a fee, of course).
