Major League Baseball players will not take another pay cut and have \"resoundingly rejected\" the league\'s plan to begin the season, according to a statement from Tony Clark.
The statement came after a two-hour conference call of the association\'s executive board and several other Major League Baseball Players Association player leaders on Thursday.
It came one day after the league rejected a proposal from the players to play 114 games with full prorated salaries.
The league wants a drastically reduced schedule in order for owners to be able to pay players on a per-game basis.
\"Earlier this week, Major League Baseball communicated its intention to schedule a dramatically shortened 2020 season unless players negotiate salary concessions,\" Clark said. \"The concessions being sought are in addition to billions in player salary reductions that have already been agreed upon.\"
