In 1993, the Cincinnati Reds owner was suspended for one year and fined $25,000 by baseball's executive council for bringing "disrepute and embarrassment" to the sport with her repeated use of racial and ethnic slurs. The suspension was shortened to eight months for good behavior. In 1996, under pressure by MLB to step aside over her controversial remarks, Schott agreed to give up day-to-day control of the team through the 1998 season. She sold controlling interest in the club in October 1999.

Curious as to why Larry Miller's choking of a Denver Nuggets fan during the 1994 playoffs didn't make the list. Was it because it was only a suspension of a couple of games?
