Major League Baseball has announced an expansion of housing accommodations to provide more than 90% of minor league players with furnished housing accommodations across every level.
The policy will have exceptions, including players with Major League uniform player contracts and minor leaguers scheduled to make six-figure salaries over a full season.
"This is a historic victory for players, who forced the league's hand by speaking up throughout the 2021 season," Advocates for Minor Leaguers director Harry Marino said in a statement.
"Let there be no mistake: this victory is the product of collective action by players. While the magnitude of the victory cannot be overstated, it is important to recognize that minor league players had no formal say regarding the details of the plan."
