Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said Monday he would support federal legislation calling for two-year bans for first-time steroid offenses unless the
Major League Baseball Players Association agrees to toughen the sport's drug policy.
Selig proposed last month that starting in 2006, major league players be given 50-game suspensions for a first positive test for steroids, a 100-game
penalty for a second positive test and a lifetime ban for a third. He also wants to ban amphetamines, which currently are not penalized under the
major league policy.
