I suspect that Bud Selig didn’t take kindly to Tigers outfielder Delmon Young for his alleged altercation last week. Young is being charged with hate crime harassment for allegedly shouting anti-Semitic epithets and scuffling with a group of tourists in New York. Today Major League Baseball suspended him seven games.

ESPN reports:

“Those associated with our game should meet the responsibilities and standards that stem from our game’s stature as a social institution,” Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. “An incident like this cannot and will not be tolerated. I understand that Mr. Young is regretful, and it is my expectation that he will learn from this unfortunate episode.”

The statement from the commissioner’s office also said that Young would be required to participate in a treatment program.

Young is eligible for reinstatement from the restricted list May 4.
