Commissioner Bud Selig still hasn’t figured out how to stop the use of performance enhancing drugs in MLB. He should consider:
• Lifetime suspensions, such as for gambling.
• Fine the clubs so that they will do regular drug testing.
These fines and salaries of suspended players can be used for programs of drug prevention, drug testing of all drafted players at high school and college levels, as well as from baseball programs in foreign countries and baseball drug awareness sessions in the community and schools. Only then will the dugout be a drug-free zone and the batter in the batter’s box, a baseball player and not a body builder.
