Tony Clark Statement Regarding Player Protests
New York, NY, Monday, September 25, 2017 … Earlier today, Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark shared the following statement with MLB Network regarding the issue of player protests.
"We will always respect and support all of our players' constitutional rights and freedom of expression. Unless or until there is a commitment to have a discussion about the issues why wouldn't those who are impassioned, have a platform and have a voice, offer their concerns? The hope inherent in the non-violent protests we are seeing is of a collective coming together to address the divisive and culturally destructive challenges that exist...and that we are now seeing on display at the highest levels."
