Internships

The Major League Baseball Players Association is the certified bargaining representative of all Major League Players, enabling them collectively to defend and advance their workplace conditions, benefits, rights, and common interests, from the time they sign their first Major League contract through retirement. It has a long and proud history of standing up for the rights of its members – past, present and future.

The Association represents Players who have signed a major league contract with one of the thirty Major League Baseball Clubs for all purposes under the terms of the Basic Agreement (the collective bargaining agreement between the MLBPA and the Thirty Clubs), including the filing and processing of grievances, and works with the agents who negotiate the players' salaries and other added terms of employment.

The Association also utilizes the collective marketing power of Major League Baseball players to assist licensees and sponsors who want to associate their brands and products with Major Leaguers. This can include trading cards and collectibles, electronic games and wireless products, apparel and novelties.  And, the Association assists with the operation and administration of the Players Trust, a charitable foundation that is the first of its kind in professional sports. Through the Players Trust, Major Leaguers contribute their time, money and celebrity to call attention to important issues affecting the needy and to help encourage others to get involved in their own communities.
