MLBPA Executive Director Michael Weiner has begun treatment for a brain tumor. Weiner plans to continue to work during his treatment and held a conference call with the player representatives of all 30 clubs where he told them they can and should call him if they need anything. It is no wonder that he is so trusted and respected by the players, by higher ups in the Commissioner's office, and even by your humble blawger. Mr. Weiner gave an informative and candid talk at the Sports Lawyers Association Meeting this past May. He also was extremely patient as he answered all my questions when I approached him after his panel, which I greatly appreciate. We wish Mr. Weiner a speedy and healthy recovery!
