That splat you just heard was Miguel Tejada‘s fall from grace.
The former American League MVP, who somewhat recently was suspended 105 games by Major League Baseball for the use of amphetamines has now been suspended by the Dominican league, but it wasn’t for performance enhancing drugs.
Nope, in fact the suspension wasn’t for anything Tejada did on the field, rather, it was for purchasing shares of a rival team despite playing on a different team.
Even Pete Rose is shaking his head at that one.
Miguel Tejada suspended for rest of season in DR for purchasing shares of Gigantes del Cibao franchise while active with Aguilas Cibaenas.
Tejada’s likely worn out his welcome in Major League Baseball, especially after his most recent incident (despite it taking place during Winter Ball) but if he was hoping to play the 2014 season in the MLB, he’ll likely find it pretty difficult. Tejada, 39, still needs to serve 64 games of his Major League suspension and given the iffy play, questionable decision making and looming suspension, it’s doubtful he’ll get any interest.
