Washington, Nov 2: With the World Series over, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez has resumed his criticism of Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig for its investigation that led to a 211-game suspension that the player is trying to overturn.
According to CBS News, in addition to a grievance filed by the players’ union, Rodriguez filed a lawsuit against Selig and MLB that accused them of engaging in a ‘witch hunt.’
MLB suspended Rodriguez on Aug. 5 for violations of its drug agreement and labor contract, but he was allowed to keep playing pending a determination of the grievance, the report said.
Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz has heard eight days of hearings, and the next session is Nov. 18, the report added.
Rodriguez said in a statement that he was deeply troubled by his team’s investigative findings with respect to MLB’s conduct. (ANI)
