MLBPA/MLBAM statement on Court's decision
MLB Players Association / MLB Advanced Media
The following statement is issued jointly by the Major League Baseball Players Association and MLB Advanced Media:
"We are disappointed by the Court's decision yesterday in CBC v. MLBPA and MLBAM. We expect to appeal the decision, and remain confident that we will prevail in that effort. We continue to believe that the use of the players, without their consent, to create this type of commercial venture is improper."
