Unsurprisingly, the Major League Baseball Player's Association has "overwhelmingly confirmed" the appointment of Tony Clark to the position of executive director, the organization announced via press release. Clark was named by the MLBPA Executive Board to the post back in December.
The longtime big leaguer took over at the helm for the deceased Michael Weiner, after having been appointed as Weiner's deputy last summer. "I am honored to receive the support of the general membership in conforming my appointment as executive director," Clark stated in the release. "I look forward to working on behalf of the fraternity of all Players, and to building on Michael's vision and the proud traditions and accomplished history of the Player's Association."
