Executive Compensation at the Major League Baseball Players Association
The Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501 (c) 5 – a union representing the players (40-man rosters on 30 Major League Baseball teams or 1,200 players) and the group commercial and licensing activities of the active players. Essentially, the MLBPA is the collective bargaining representative for all current Major League Baseball players assisting them with grievances, salary arbitration (the average player compensation is $4 million annually with a minimum compensation of $600,000), playing conditions, and the group licensing agent on behalf of the players.
In addition to the players, all managers, coaches, and trainers that have signed contracts with a major league club may join the MLBPA. Annual dues are estimated to be about $16,000 annually. Read more
