((After all the bad press and public pressure about player steroid use, Major League Baseball is finally stepping up to the plate. The owners and players union have agreed to a drug testing policy with harder hitting penalties.

(SOT BUD SELIG/BASEBALL COMMISSIONER)

"WERE ACTING TODAY TO HELP RESTORE THE CONFIDENCE OF OUR FANS IN OUR GREAT GAME."
Baseball came under intense scrutiny after some top players admitted before a grand jury they used steroids-they were linked to the investigation of BALCO laboratories.
Now first time offenders get a suspension of 10 games-under the old policy it was just treatment. A fourth positive test equals a years suspension. Every player will be tested at least once a year and theyve also added the number of drugs to be banned.

(SOT, ROB MANFORD/MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL)

THIS IS AS GOOD AS ANY POLICY IN ANY PROFESSIONAL SPORT.
But some experts balk at that, saying compared to other sports its more like a bunt than a homerun.

(NATSOUND NFL)


A first time offender in the NFL is hit with a four game suspension without pay-thats a QUARTER of the season.
The new standards come in the wake of a threat by US lawmakers who were set to introduce legislation for minimum drug-testing standards for all professional sports.

(SOT SEN. JOHN McCain/(R)AZ)


THIS IS DRAMATIC AND SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS FROM WHAT THE CASE WAS BEFORE.
Players like Carl Everett of the Chicago White Sox says hes for the testing but not sure its necessary.

(SOT CARL EVERETT/CHICAGO WHITE SOX)

IF IT WORKS IT WORKS, SO I DONT THINK IT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE GAME, IT IS OVERBLOWN.
