Major League Baseball
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that baseball management has fired Shyam Das, the arbitrator who overturned Ryan Braun’s drug suspension in February.
It’s Major League Baseball’s opening week, and as we tune in to the Cubs and White Sox, it’s interesting to see how these teams play when it comes to politics.
