Tony Clark Statement Regarding Integrity of the Game
New York, NY, Tuesday, February 06, 2018 … Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark today issued the following statement regarding the integrity of the game.
“Pitchers and catchers will report to camps in Florida and Arizona in one week. A record number of talented free agents remain unemployed in an industry where revenues and franchise values are at record highs.
Spring training has always been associated with hope for a new season. This year a significant number of teams are engaged in a race to the bottom. This conduct is a fundamental breach of the trust between a team and its fans and threatens the very integrity of our game.”
