San Francisco Giants catcher Eliezer Alfonzo has apologized to everyone in the world for getting caught using performance-enhancing substances.

Alfonzo, 29, tested positive under Major League Baseball's program. He was demoted to the Giants' Triple-A team in Fresno on Opening Day but remains on the 40-man roster and thus subject to MLB law and order. His 50-game suspension began Thursday.
