Major League Baseball intends to give the players’ association the required one-year advance notice that would allow management to unilaterally change the strike zone, install pitch clocks and limit trips to the pitcher’s mound starting in 2018. Under baseball’s labor contract, management can alter playing rules only with agreement from the union — unless it gives one year’s notice. With the one year of notice, management can make changes on its own.
