Yankees Pitcher Apologizes For HGH Use

New York Yankees' pitcher Andy Pettitte has apologized to current and former teammates as well as fans for using Human Growth Hormone. The left-hander held a news conference this afternoon and apologized for the embarrassment he has caused people.

Pettitte said he questioned his use of the drug almost immediately after taking it. When asked if he watched last week's testimony by Roger Clemens, Pettitte said he had not and that he hopes to remains friends with both Clemens and former trainer Brian McNamee. Pettitte said he took HGH to help him recover from an injury, not to gain any advantage.
