Palmeiro Suspended by MLB

5-months ago, former Mississippi State Baseball star Rafael Palmeiro emphatically told a congressional panel he never used steroids.

Today, the slugger is the highest profile player suspended for using performance enhancers.

The 10-day suspension begins tonight for Palmeiro, who recently became only the 4th player in Major League history to amass 3-thousand hits and 500 home runs in his career.

While he didn't deny testing positive for drugs, Palmeiro insists they got into his system by accident.
