People in this category have been suspended by a sporting body (Major League Baseball, the IOC, a national federation, or another professional league) for illegal drug use, including performance-enhancing drugs and other prohibited drugs.

Major League Baseball did not test its players for steroids until 2005, although minor league players were tested earlier, and MLB had been testing for other drugs. Many of the suspensions on this list came from the cocaine scandal that swept baseball during the 1980s, making some suspensions not steroid-related at all.

This category does not include players who were not suspended for drug offenses, but later admitted to drug use.
