NEW YORK -- Baseball owners and players have ratified the sports new five-year collective bargaining agreement, extending their labor peace to 26 years through 2021.The sides announced their approvals Wednesday, a day after holding votes in separate telephone meetings.This agreement allows us to build on the positive momentum from last season and promote a generation of young players, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.After eight work stoppages from 1972-95, the sides have negotiated deals without a strike or lockout in 2002, 2006, 2011 and this year. The new deal expires Dec. 1, 2021.Teams voted 29-1 to approve, and Tampa Bay Rays managing general partner Stuart Sternberg was the lone dissenting vote, a person familiar with that meeting told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the vote breakdown was not announced.While Sternberg declined to comment on the vote, he did express his views on the deal.I am thankful for the hard work, leadership, and spirit of compromise that were essential to this agreement coming together, he said in an email to the AP. However, twice a decade, the bargaining process provides an opportunity to address the extraordinary and widening competitive gap that exists on-field between higher and lower revenue clubs. I feel that opportunity was missed here.The union said its executive board unanimously ratified the Basic Agreement, Benefit Plan Agreement, Joint Drug Agreement and Joint Policy on Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Child Abuse.Former All-Star first baseman Tony Clark led the unions negotiations for the first time. He took over as executive director following the death of Michael Weiner in November 2013.The players involvement during negotiations was both essential and unprecedented, and todays unanimous vote was the culmination of those efforts, Clark said in a statement. This was a team effort from beginning to end.Negotiators reached an agreement Nov. 30 in Irving, Texas, about 3+ hours before the expiration of the previous contract.The deal raises the luxury tax thresholds, increases some of the tax rates, imposes a hard cap on signing bonuses for international amateurs and bans smokeless tobacco for players who do not already have major league service.It also eliminates the provision that gave World Series home-field advantage to the All-Star winner and bans rookie hazing that includes costumes as women.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback didnt practise Wednesday, telling reporters afterwards his right foot injury flared up following the clubs 37-0 home win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday. Durant said he went back to wearing the boot in an attempt to give his foot added support. "It kind of swelled up on me a little bit over the past couple of days," Durant said. "Were just being smart about it, being cautious. "Well see where were at (Thursday)." Durant, 30, injured his foot in a 39-28 road win over the Toronto Argonauts on July 11. He wore the boot early last week but managed to shed it and resume practising later in the week before starting against Hamilton. Durant showed no signs Sunday of the foot bothering him, completing 20-of-32 passes for 347 yards and four TDs against Hamilton. Durant also ran twice for 18 yards and was named the CFLs offensive player of the week. Durant said there was no specific play Sunday that aggravated thhe injury.dddddddddddd "I really didnt take any hits," he said. "I guess it was just coming from the pounding, starting and stopping, dropping (back) and running. "All the normal things that happen during a game. It didnt really respond well to that. It was pretty sore (after Sundays game) and it got a little swollen on me. Right now were just trying to manage the pain, manage the swelling." Predictably, Durant is figuring on playing Saturday. "Were going to take it day by day and see how this thing feels," Durant said. "As of right now I hope to be able to go." Saskatchewan (4-0) is the CFLs only unbeaten team and Durant has been a big part of that. Durant has thrown a league-leading 12 TD passes and has yet to surrender an interception. "Right now, hes day to day," Riders head coach Cory Chamblin said of Durant. "It may even go down to a game-time decision." If Durant is unable to play, sophomore Drew Willy would make his second career CFL start.
