Baseball’s new collective bargaining agreement is in place. Officially.
Major League Baseball just announced that all 30 clubs voted in favor of the new CBA, putting a new five-year contract in place between the league and the players union. At the end of the new deal, baseball should be at 21 consecutive years without a strike or a lockout.
“I am very pleased that the clubs have given their unanimous support of the new agreement,” commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. “Our sport has taken many significant strides over the past decade, and this agreement will allow us to continue to grow the game.”
