League Notes: Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission Chair Faces Resume Questions

The man responsible for overseeing the drug testing of Jamaica's Olympic athletes, including its vaunted sprinters, "may not have received all of the graduate degrees on his résumé." A review conducted by The Wall Street Journal "could not verify" that Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission Chair Herbert George Elliott earned a master's in chemistry from Columbia University and a medical degree and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Université Libre de Bruxelles (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/13). ... The Japanese baseball players association "has accepted revisions to the current posting system that allows Japanese players ineligible for free agency to move to the majors, limited to a period of two years" (KYODO, 11/14).
