Ohio Sen. Brown urges Major League Baseball to preserve non-player pensions

The Cleveland Plain Dealer

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat from Ohio, wants Major League Baseball to drop plans to modify pensions of its non-uniformed employees.

Team owners are expected to discuss and vote on the future of its employee pension plans at their next meeting, May 8-9 in New York.

"I love the game of baseball and want the employees who help make it great to be treated with the same respect as its players," Brown said in a letter to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig.

“Many of these employees make less than $40,000 a year and rely on their pensions to have peace of mind when they retire,” he said.
