NEW YORK (Reuters) – Representatives from Major League Baseball (MLB) and its players’ association will meet “informally” in New York on Thursday, a source said, after the two sides failed to reach a working agreement.
Commissioner Rob Manfred canceled the first two series of the regular season on Tuesday after the two sides failed to resolve the dispute, leading to the league locking out players in December.
MLB Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem will meet with Bruce Meyer, an attorney for the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), the source told Reuters.
The cancellation of opening day on March 31 marks the first time games have been missed due to a labor dispute since the 1994-1995 players’ strike, two years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced MLB to drastically cut its 2020 regular season.
