A-Rod sues MLB, union to overturn drug ban

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball and its players' union, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was "clear and convincing evidence" he used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport's drug investigation.

As part of the lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan, Rodriguez made public the 33-decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz.
