MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers won't change a policy that allows beer in the clubhouse both at home and away.

Several Major League teams have altered their policies following the alcohol-related traffic crash that killed St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock.

Players association representative Chris Capuano says the decision is consistent with the way the ballclub treats its players.

Capuano says team management expects the players to handle themselves professionally.

He says no player would sit in the clubhouse and drink four or five beers and then drive - it just wouldn't happen.

The group Mothers Against Drunk Driving has asked to meet next week with Commissioner Bud Selig to try to broaden a review of the sport's alcohol policies.
