For the first time in Major League Baseball (MLB) history, a player won an appeal against a regular season suspension for alleged performance enhancing drug use.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who MLB announced in December failed a drug test for PED’s, won over a panel of judges to determine whether to hold up or decline the league’s option of a 50 game suspension.
In a 2-1 decsion, Braun was awarded a win over the proposed league ban and will not have to serve it. He is allowed to begin offseason workouts with the Brewers as they prepare for their first Spring Training and regular season, without all-star first baseman Prince Fielder, who signed a 9-year deal with the Detroit Tigers as an unrestricted free agent last month.
