Hours before the All-Star Game Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced plans to strengthen the league's anti-discrimination policies.

MLB representatives joined Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to unveil a series of steps being implemented.

They include creating a code of conduct that will be distributed to all players and posted in locker rooms.

"We welcome a workplace code of conduct, which will be distributed to all of our on-field personnel, along with new training opportunities and a centralized system for the reporting of incidents and complaints," said MLB Commissioner Bud Selig.

"This is about much more than clubhouse policy," Schneiderman said. "We're talking about policies that make sure from the top on down, everyone's rights are respected, dignity is respected."

The policies will also be implemented in the minor leagues.
