Judge: Decision in A-Rod suit must be public

NEW YORK (AP) -- A federal judge says Alex Rodriguez cannot file portions of arbitrator Fredric Horowitz's decision under seal as part of a lawsuit seeking to overturn the one-year suspension from baseball given to the New York Yankees third baseman.

U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley III denied a request by Rodriguez's lawyers Monday that was supported by the Major League Baseball Players Association.

A lawyer from Major League Baseball said the league did not seek to seal any parts of the decision, which was issued Saturday but has not been made public.

The three-time MVP was suspended for 211 games last August by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, and Horowitz reduced the penalty to 162 games plus any postseason games played by the Yankees this year.
