Drug Testing in Major League Baseball

By: Jimmy Spier

If the you've according to the news recently, no you' ve of doubt intended to speak about the policy of test of new drug of MLB. While you could have intended to speak about the policy you could not include/understand the specific implications of the policy and how it can assign your players and teams preferred.

The new policy was caused by threat of the legislation of the congress. Within the framework of the policy the harder penalties for the steroid use are applied. Within the framework of the new policy the players must be examined during their formation of spring with at least an additional test during the regular season as well as to be prone to the random test throughout the regular season.

Within the framework of the preceding policy, the penalties were much less serious. For example, because a first offends a player would be prone to a ten day old suspension and then to 30 days for the second offence. The third offence would evaluate a 60 day old suspension. The new policy claims a suspension of 50 plays for the first offence and an offence of 100 plays for the second offence. For a third the player offends will receive a prohibition of life. Moreover, after the first offends the player is subjected to the amphetamines examining as well as the test steroid. It is the first time that the problem of the use of amphetamine will have been addressed by a policy with MLB. Within the framework of the old policy a player could not receive a prohibition of life until it was struck with at least the fifth offence.

Within the framework of the preceding policy the test was also carried out on a basis much less frequent. The test was carried out at the beginning of the formation of spring without the additional test by the regular season other that the random test. Within the framework of this policy, it was completely possible that a player is examined only one time of the beginning of the formation of spring throughout the regular season.

The policy stipulated that the players who examined the positive one for the steroid the year before again taking of policy affect would be treated as contraveners of first time within the framework of the new policy if they still examine the positive one.

It is advisable to note that in case a player is interdict during the life after the third offence within the framework of the new policy, a player can apply so that the permission turns over to the play two years after reception of prohibition. An independent referee can be affected in order to review the decision of Commissioner in this case.

The policy also takes a blow with the possession of an illegal utility steroid in more of the use of the illegal steroids. The players condemned for the possession of the illegal steroids are prone to a suspension of the play 60-80 for the first offence and 120 plays at one year for the second offence. A prohibition of life is on the table for the third offence. Players who are condemned harder suspensions of face steroid of distribution for the first offence and are prone to a prohibition of life after the first offence.

The penalties for the use of amphetamine are slightly less less serious than for the steroid use. The obligatory test of follow-up is dictated for the first offence with a suspension of 25 plays for the second offence. A suspension of 80 plays will be given for the third positive test and with the fourth the penalty offends is left to the police chief, who could include a prohibition of life.
