Rockefeller, D-W. Va., said that the hearing will examine the current policies held by the four major sports leagues — the National Football League, National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball and National Hockey League. The hearing is expected to focus on how those policies deter violence, promote awareness, provide due process and punish those who commit acts of domestic violence.
