MLBPA Regulations Governing Player Agents

To represent or advise a player in negotiating the terms of a Major League contract, an agent must first be certified by the Major League Baseball Players Association.

Individuals who recruit players on behalf of agents, or who provide certain services to players on behalf of agents, also must have MLBPA certification.

To become certified by the MLBPA, a prospective agent, recruiter or service provider must first:

  • Be designated by a Major League Player as his representative, or by a certified agent as a recruiter or service provider;
  • Read, understand and agree to all MLBPA Regulations Governing Player Agents, and
  • Submit a completed application for certification along with a non-refundable $500 application fee.
