Michael Weiner Passes Away

MLB Players Association executive director Michael Weiner has passed away at 55 years old after losing his fight with brain cancer. Weiner is survived by his wife, Diane, and three daughters. Former MLB player Tony Clark was Weiner's deputy executive director and will because the MLBPA's acting executive director for the time being.

This is a sad day in baseball that we all knew was coming. Weiner was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in August of 2012 and continued to work, including a full schedule in 2013, after hearing the terrible news. Rest in peace to Weiner and our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to Weiner's family.
