This is the MLB Today…

MLB hired an expert at the rate of $775 per hour to make an argument for minor league players remaining unpaid during Spring Training. — MLB News Network ®  (@newsnetworkmlb) February 12, 2022
MLB presented a 130-page proposal, raising the minimum salary to $630,000 and the CBT to $222 million in 2026. The union's last proposal was a minimum salary of $775,000 and a $245 million CBT beginning now. So yes, spring training will be delayed. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) February 12, 2022
The meeting between MLB and the MLBPA is over. The meeting lasted less than an hour. As expected, there’s no deal — Joon Lee (@joonlee) February 12, 2022
One thing to remember: the MLBPA did not strike. MLB locked them out. MLB could end the lockout in the time it takes you to eat a taco without a single additional concession from the rules they were happy to operate under last season while they continue to negotiate. — Dan Szymborski (@DSzymborski) February 4, 2022
MLB understood its proposal carried no hope to facilitate a deal in days. The intention rather was to spark talk and trigger more give-and take. MLB clearly has more room for flexibility but seeks to first see greater movement from the players. — Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 12, 2022

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
