MLB Players Association says 2023 rule changes impact 'the integrity of the game itself'

Sep 9, 2022

Three notable rule changes will be coming to Major League Baseball during the 2023 season, but representatives of the MLB Players’ Association voted unanimously against them.

The changes — banning defensive shifts, implementing a pitch clock and larger bases — were passed after a vote on Friday by a new joint committee made up of players, club representatives and an umpire.

After testing these new changes in the minor leagues and discussing the matter over several meetings, the vote passed.
