DETROIT (AP) -- Major League Baseball has suspended Delmon Young for seven days following his arrest on a hate crime harassment charge last week in New York.
The commissioner's office said Monday the suspension is retroactive to Friday, the day Young was arrested after a late-night tussle at his hotel during which police say he yelled anti-Semitic epithets.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement, "Those associated with our game should meet the responsibilities and standards that stem from our game's stature as a social institution. An incident like this cannot and will not be tolerated."
Young is eligible for reinstatement from the restricted list May 4.
Tigers president Dave Dombrowski was scheduled to meet with the media Monday night.
