The Major League Baseball Players Association (“MLBPA”) is the sole and exclusive bargaining agent for all Major League Baseball Players and individuals preparing to negotiate a Major League contract. Only MLBPA General Certified Agents may represent or advise a player in negotiating the terms of a Major League contract and only MLBPA Limited Certified Agents may recruit or provide client maintenance services on behalf of a General Certified Agent. You do not need MLBPA Certification to represent a player in the Amateur Draft, an international amateur player negotiating a minor league contract and signing bonus, or a non-40 man roster Player.
The MLBPA Agent Exam is administered in August of every year. In order to be eligible to sit for the August exam you must submit a complete application (including your application fee and signed forms) to the MLBPA by no later than June 1 and pass a background investigation prior to the exam date.
For more information about the application process and answers to commonly asked questions, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any questions concerning an Application or the Agent Regulations, please contact Robert Guerra at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-826-0808.
