Officials of home teams are notified in advance to leave stadium and parking passes for the testers.
Rob Manfred, baseball's executive vice president for labor relations, and players' union general counsel Michael Weiner were quoted as saying players are not given advance notice of tests and that it was not an issue.
``This is scandalous that anyone would insert this kind of loophole in a system and not include it in the written regulations,'' John Hoberman, a doping expert, was quoted as saying. ``They are opening the door to serious doubts about the integrity of the program.''
