UNDATED (AP) — Major League Baseball appeared headed to its first work stoppage in 26 years after a pair of brief negotiating sessions Tuesday led to little or no progress.
The sport’s five-year collective bargaining agreement expires at 11:59 p.m. EST Wednesday. Management is expected to follow with a lockout of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
Major League Baseball hasn’t had a work stoppage since 1994-95.
