Major League Baseball adds protection from sexual orientation discrimination to CBA

Major League Baseball has agreed to add protection from sexual orientation discrimination to its agreements for players and employees.  The wording of Article XV Section A now will read “The provisions of this agreement will apply to all players covered by this agreement without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, or sexual orientation.”

The New York Daily News story is here.

The Agreement document PDF is here and the new language should appear on p. 52 at any time. 

The National Football League recently added a similar clause to its Collective Bargaining Agreement.
