MLB Cracks Down

New York— Major League Baseball is cracking down on their drug rules. The league announced Friday that players suspended during the season for a performance enhancing drug violation will not be eligible for that year’s postseason.

Penalties will also increase from fifty games to eighty games for a first testing violation and from 100 games to 162 games for a second violation. A third penalty remains a lifetime ban. A player serving a season-long suspension will lose all of his pay. In-season random urine tests will increase from 1400 to 3200 overall. There will also be 400 random blood collections during the season.
