Major League Baseball and the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues (NAPBL) have reached an agreement on a new six-year Professional Baseball Agreement (PBA), extending it through the 2020 season.

The NAPBL leagues unanimously approved the agreement in January, followed by the unanimous approval of Major League Baseball owners.

The agreement guarantees that Major League teams will field at least 160 National Association teams through the life of the extension by means of Player Development Contracts (PDC) and/or ownership of National Association teams.

The extension continues many aspects of the previous contract, which was reached in 2005 and extended through 2014. Both parties will remain committed to ongoing efforts to improve palyer development, fan experience and the business stability of Minor League Baseball.
