Texas Rangers Manager Ron Washington was tested positive for cocaine at the time of the 2009 season. Washington, 57 years old, started promoting drug testing from the time he failed test, which was executed by Major League Baseball in July 2009, and he passed all of his consecutive tests. To support Washington and employ him as manager, the Rangers approved his apology as genuine and also his clarification that this was a previous violation.
Washington said that “I did make a mistake and I regret that I did it. I am really embarrassed and I am really sorry.”
Washington refused to discuss the particular circumstances that led him to use cocaine because he did not desire his family to know the reason in the media.
Washington informed the commissioner’s office and his Rangers bosses regarding his cocaine use before the test results were out, and the team determine not to fire him after the test result is positive. The Rangers were shocked at Washington’s admission, but finally decided not to fire him if he takes the essential steps and will not repeat the mistake again.
