The University of Miami's baseball program appears to be at the epicenter of a burgeoning controversy involving an anti-aging clinic suspected of being a hub for performance-enhancing drugs for Major League Baseball players, The New York Times reported. Several high-profile players have been identified as having ties to the clinic, and several of them -- including Alex Rodriguez, after whom Miami's baseball stadium is named, and Ryan Braun, who played at Miami before beginning his pro career -- have close ties to the university. Miami officials told the Times in a statement that the university was "aware of media reports regarding one of our employees, and an intensive review is under way.”
