Tony Bosch's Biogenesis of America clinic at the center of an MLB investigation on performance enhancing drugs may not have stopped at professional athletes.

According to ESPN's Outside the Lines, several sources claim Bosch provided high school athletes a "sports performance package," which often included HGH.

OTL also obtained Biogenesis documents that list the names of 10 high school baseball players from the Miami area with dollar amounts next to their names.

A former Biogenesis employee, speaking anonymously, told OTL:

"The source said the young athletes regularly were injected with HGH and other prescription drugs in the Biogenesis office. Bosch is not a licensed physician, and HGH, testosterone and other hormones are not legally approved for use as performance enhancers."

According to the report, two of the named athletes are the sons of Lazaro Collazo, a former pitching coach of the University of Miami. Yuri Sucart, the cousin who provided Alex Rodriguez steroids when he was with the Texas Rangers, is listed as a courier, while Sucart's son, a high school baseball player, is identified as a client.

Porter Fischer, a former Biogenesis employee who provided the Miami New Times with the initial documents that launched MLB's investigation of Bosch and his clinic, told OTL other clients of Bosch included professional athletes in other sports (NBA, boxing, tennis and MMA) as well as NCAA athletes.
