Does MLB still have a Union with a Lawyer that represents them against the Baseball Commissioner, I can't remember the Pete Rose fiasco or Mark Mcgwire and Sammy Sosa.

Did any of them take MLB to Court.

A lot of it is covered here:

Doping in baseball - Wikipedia

Pete Rose wasn't suspended (for life) for doping but for gambling, voluntarily accepted the ban, and has never been reinstated (after several applications) so is still ineligible for the Hall of Fame.

I don't think it's about the rules that he violated, it's about giving notice so that he can present his case.  I think the US constitution is an amazing document, and it needs to be respected.  The NYRA should have sought legal advice regarding how/when to suspend Baffert.  The judge decided they acted too quickly and didn't respect his constitutional rights.

Totally agree with you about the US Constitution.It is unfortunate that Mr.Baffert chooses to use it as a means to skate around his numerous rule violations
