David Prouty steps up for MLB Players Association

The inspiration of Major League Baseball Players Association executive director Michael Weiner is felt by anyone who works in his office. It is certainly not lost on David Prouty, who will assume part of Weiner’s duties for one of the most powerful unions in the country.

Weiner, who is living with an inoperable brain tumor, has handed his role of general counsel to Prouty, who has served as chief labor counsel on Weiner’s staff since 2008. Prouty, 54, a graduate of Bowdoin College and Harvard Law School, becomes just the fourth general counsel, after Marvin Miller, Donald Fehr, and Weiner.
