Former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski was sentenced Friday to five years' probation, avoiding jail time after cooperating with baseball's investigation into performance-enhancing drugs.Radomski, who admitted giving dozens of major leaguers steroids and human growth hormone, also was ordered to pay a $18,575 fine.

Radomski pleaded guilty last April to selling speed, steroids and HGH to players from 1995 until Dec. 14, 2005, when agents raided his Long Island home. As part of his plea deal, Radomski was required to cooperate with federal investigators and George Mitchell, who headed baseball's doping probe.

Radomski, who had no prior offenses, had faced no more than six months in prison.
