NEW YORK (AP) - Tony Clark has been confirmed as the new head of the Major League Baseball Players Association.

The former All-Star became acting executive director when Michael Weiner died Nov. 21, then was given the job in a unanimous vote by the union’s executive board on Dec. 3.

The union said Thursday that Clark was approved in a secret ballot and online vote conducted among players.
