Delmon Young Suspended 50 Games

The suspension, which is without pay and includes the 10 games he's already missed, is the longest ever in the International League. Young will be eligible to return to the Bulls for their June 19 home game against Charlotte.

As part of the suspension, Young has also agreed to do 50 hours of community service, working with the Durham Bulls Youth Athletic League and the Miracle League of Golf Beaches in St. Petersburg, Fla. The DBYAL is an inner-city baseball program sponsored by the Bulls, while the Miracle League is a program for mentally and physically challenged youths between the ages of 3 and 19.
Rays prospect Delmon Young上個月底脫序的演出讓他被禁賽50場球(包含判決出來之前的10場球都不能出賽),而且還要在禁賽期間做社區服務的工作,這是美帝處罰名人時常做的處分。提到這件拿球棒惡意砸裁判的事件,除了Delmon Young是位相當優秀的prospect外,還因為Dodgers自家農場最近也出了點亂子:Suns 6日作客Birmingham Barons的比賽因為對方教練罷賽提前結束,Barons manager Chris Cron指責Dodgers年輕prospect Matt Kemp在遭受觸身球後向他們dugout叫囂,雙方對峙起來後Cron說Kemp "拿球棒打人" 竟沒被驅逐出場,忿而率隊罷賽。
