Selig says he'll back drug bill
By wire services
Published May 17, 2005
NEW YORK - Commissioner Bud Selig said Monday that he would support federal legislation calling for two-year bans for first-time steroid offenses unless the Major League Baseball Players' Association agrees to toughen the sport's drug policy.
Selig proposed last month that starting in 2006, major-leaguers be given 50-game suspensions for a first positive test for steroids, a 100-game penalty for a second positive test and a lifetime ban for a third. He also wants to ban amphetamines.
The players' association said it will discuss the proposal with management representatives. Baseball's current steroids policy runs through the 2008 season.
