You got out of the military if you were cited with a Section 8.
Now, Manny is out of baseball for 50 games after being found in violation of Section 8.G.2.
That's the provision of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program he was found to be in non-compliance with.
After consulting with the Players Association and his representative (Scott Boras), he waived his right to challenge the suspension, which ends July 2nd.
The below is Manny's statement from the Players Association:
"Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was okay to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I've taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons."
"I want to apologize to Mr. McCourt, Mrs. McCourt, Mr. Torre, my teammates, the Dodger organization, and to the Dodger fans. LA is a special place to me and I know everybody is disappointed. So am I. I'm sorry about this whole situation."
Not nearly as sorry as everybody who loves baseball is.
