Tony Clark will continue to lead the Major League Players Association until 2027

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — The Major League Baseball Players Association (Mlbpa) voted to extend CEO Tony Clark’s contract through 2027.

The union confirmed Clark’s extension Tuesday.

The five-year extension means Clark is in a position to drive the next deal. The current contract expires after the 2026 season.

Clark, 50, who spent 15 years in the majors with the Tigers and Diamondbacks primarily, helped negotiate the current labor agreement with MLB. After several contentious months of negotiation, the MLBPA and the MLB signed a new contract in March, salvaging the 162-game season.

He also helped guide players through the 2020 season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic and helped the union add thousands of players after the minor leagues voted to join the Association this year.

The Athletic first reported the news of Clark’s extension.
