List of Major League Baseball players investigated for domestic violence

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Major League Baseball (MLB) and the MLB Players Association (MLBPA) announced the creation of a domestic violence policy in August 2015.[1] According to the policy, the Commissioner can place any player suspected of domestic violence, sexual assault, or child abuse on administrative leave for up to seven days while conducting an investigation. The Commissioner can choose to suspend or reinstate the player, or can defer judgment until after criminal proceedings conclude. The policy does not include minimum or maximum punishments.[2]

Under baseball’s collectively bargained policy, players undergo mandatory domestic violence training once a year in spring training. MLB conscripted a San Francisco-based nonprofit, Futures Without Violence, to spearhead its training program. The nonprofit is also part of MLB’s joint committee on domestic violence, a collaboration between the players’ union and the commissioner’s office.[3]

Prior to MLB's 2015 policy on domestic violence, the league office and individual clubs did not take disciplinary action against players and managers who were either arrested or accused of domestic violence.[4][5]
