The following is the current state of the various alcohol policies in Major League Baseball across all 30 clubs. This resource is being added to The Biz of Baseball in the wake of the Josh Hancock accident in which he was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.157, which is nearly twice Missouri’s legal limit.

Since the accident, Major League Baseball clubs have been changing policy, although many had "no alcohol" policies in clubhouses prior. For those interested, CBS Evening News did a segment on baseball's connection to the beer industry, which can be viewed online here (Baseball and Booze). (UPDATED 5/14/07)
