Major League Baseball Players Association

MLBPA is an acronym that stands for "Major League Baseball Players Association," which is the collective bargaining representative for all MLB players. It represents all players on the 40-man rosters of the 30 MLB teams.

The MLBPA was formed in 1956 by players but wasn't formally recognized until 1966. It consists of a labor union, a Players Choice Group Licensing Program, and a Players Trust charitable foundation. Any player, coach, manager, or athletic trainer who has held a contract with an MLB team is eligible for MLBPA membership.
