Major League Baseball told its clubs that some are failing to provide acceptable work accommodations for female employees, calling them “embarrassingly below” standard.

The May 20 memorandum from Michael Hill, the MLB senior vice president for on-field operations, asks teams to provide documentation by June 3 of the facilities for home and visiting female coaches and staff. Hill told teams to comply with MLB regulations “as soon as possible."

That's on the MLB head offices, they should've checked on such things before the season in Feb-Mar.

They should also lay down heavy fines and disciplinary actions for clubs that aren't up to par. They are almost 2 months into the current season. Why only NOW are they trying to act like are being stern?

The clubs aren't innocent either, their ballparks are freaking HUGE! With a couple of exceptions.........

You're telling me there's no room to expand?

There should be a congressional enquiry into this at once

This is not a problem that suddenly happened, on the contrary it means the situation was like this and not considered a problem for a very long time. It reflects a lot of the problems in the professional sports culture.
