Statement from the Major League Baseball Players Association

NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2021 – The Major League Baseball Players Association today released the following statement:

Although we have not received any communication directly, the MLBPA is aware of a letter that has been distributed today by the Cactus League Association.

The letter states that after meeting with Major League Baseball, the Cactus League Association “believes it is wise” to delay the start of Spring Training in Arizona. The letter correctly notes that MLB does not have the ability to unilaterally make this decision.

While we, of course, share the goals of a safe Spring Training and regular season, MLB has repeatedly assured us that it has instructed its teams to be prepared for an on time start to Spring Training and the Regular Season and we continue to devote all our efforts to making sure that that takes place as safely as possible.
