SAN DIEGO (AP) -The Padres revised their alcohol policy that will limit players' consumption in the home clubhouse and on some team airplane trips.
Under the new policy announced Saturday, alcohol will continue to be available in the Padres' clubhouse at home, but will be limited. In addition, the team said alcohol will not be served during the final two hours on team charter flights and not at all on flights to San Diego of less than two hours.
There is no restriction on alcohol for flights not destined for San Diego and in the visiting clubhouse at Petco Park.
``It does make sense on a couple of different levels to make some form of restrictions,'' San Diego manager Bud Black said. ``I think the players understand that as well. The responsibility lies on the player.''
The change in the Padres' alcohol policy came with the St. Louis Cardinals in town for a three-game series. It was the death of Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock on April 29 in an alcohol-related car accident, that caused many major league teams to examine their alcohol policies.
St. Louis banned alcohol from their clubhouse five days after Hancock's death.
