New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte is admitting his use of human growth hormone. The veteran left-hander was one of more than 80 players mentioned in the Mitchell Report. The 20-month investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball was released Thursday.

Pettitte says he tried HGH on two occasions while recovering from an elbow injury.

He also says "If what I did was an error in judgment on my part, I apologize."
