Donnelly Suspended 10 Days for Pine Tar

Jun 18 2005 04:06 PM

NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball is suspending Los Angeles Angels' reliever Brendan Donnelly ten days for having pine tar on his glove during a game this week against the Washington Nationals.

Angels' manager Mike Scioscia and Nationals' manager Frank Robinson get one-game suspensions, and they've also been fined undisclosed amounts for screaming at each other after Robinson had umpires inspect Donnelly's glove.

Donnelly was ejected without throwing a pitch. Scioscia and Robinson then argued. Both benches emptied and several players pushed and shoved each other.

Donnelly and Robinson are appealing their suspensions.

10 Days? Sheesh, isn't that what you get for your fourth positive steroids test?
