NEW YORK (AP) - Michael Weiner has moved a step closer to succeeding Donald Fehr as head of the baseball players' union.
Players voted 1,055 to 4 to endorse the executive board's recommendation in July that Weiner become the next executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
The final step is for the executive board to take formal vote during its annual meeting, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The 61-year-old Fehr has been head of the union since December 1983. Weiner became a union lawyer in September 1988 and has been
its general counsel since February 2004
