Andy Pettitte has admitted to also using human growth hormone in 2004, saying it was supplied to him that time by his father, The Associated Press learned Wednesday.

After the Mitchell Report was released, Pettitte said he used HGH for two days in 2002. Last week, Pettitte was asked to discuss drug use in both a deposition and affidavit before a congressional committee.

"In that affidavit, Andy informed the committee that in addition to the two shots a day of HGH he took for two days in 2002, he also took HGH for a one-day period in 2004, shortly preceding season-ending elbow surgery," his lawyer, Jay Reisinger, said in a statement.
