Representatives of the Major League Baseball Players Association, the umpires union and Major League Baseball met for two hours on Sunday in Fort Myers, Fla., according to The Associated Press. The meeting had been requested by the MLBPA to discuss errant calls made during the 2010 playoffs. It was postponed once due to a death in the family of one of the participants. Six former players attended the session: Tony Clark, who holds the position of director of player relations for the MLBPA, Steve Rogers, Phil Bradley, Bobby Bonilla, Stan Javier and Rick Helling.
MLB representatives included executive vice presidents Joe Torre and Rob Manfred, senior advisor Frank Robinson and senior vice president Dan Halem.
"We had a productive exchange about a range of issues of concern to players, umpires and the Commissioner's Office," said Michael Weiner, executive director of the players union.
"Just a conversation about areas of mutual concern," Manfred said.
