  • Union head Tony Clark lauded the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday for giving minor league players a 50 percent raise, and he hopes other clubs do the same. Representatives from the players' association visited the Blue Jays spring training camp a day after The Athletic reported the team planned to boost pay for all minor leaguers, some making as little as $1,100 a month in recent seasons. Minor league players are not paid during spring training or the offseason. Those who don't receive lucrative signing bonuses often struggle to afford meals, rent and basic equipment like cleats and bats. Toronto is the first club to announce such a raise. 'I'm glad there has been some dialogue and a decision made in the last week to suggest that guys are going to be compensated differently than they may have been in the past,' he said. 'We'll have to see how other teams either do or don't fall in line behind them.' A lawsuit filed by former minor league players alleging MLB violated minimum wage and overtime requirements was pre-empted last year when congress passed the 'Save America's Pastime Act,' which stripped minor leaguers of the protection of federal minimum wage laws. MLB has also pushed Arizona lawmakers to exempt minor league players from minimum wage laws there, a move that would affect hundreds of players who are not paid during spring training — despite working as many as 12 hours per day — and make only a few thousand dollars playing in the rookie-level Arizona League. Clark noted conditions in the minor leagues have not changed much since he played there in the early 1990s. Despite that, the union has accomplished little at the bargaining table on behalf of minor leaguers. Clark said he considers minor leaguers 'a part of the puzzle' for the union, but added there are challenges to that relationship. Minor league players are not a part of the major league players' association, nor are they unionized themselves. 'Although we don't represent legally the minor league group, we will continue to do the things that we can do to support them moving forward despite that,' Clark said. First-year Blue Jays skipper Charlie Montoyo was a minor league manager for 18 seasons. He said it's 'awesome' that Toronto is boosting pay. 'Hopefully that gives an idea to everybody else in baseball,' he said. 'That's awesome I think. I'm proud to be a Blue Jay by what we just did.' ___ Follow Jake Seiner: https://twitter.com/Jake_Seiner ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

  • Abortion rights activists chanted 'shame' as a Georgia Senate committee approved a measure that would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Republicans in Georgia are joining others in many states moving to enact tough abortion restrictions, even though they're certain to be challenged in court, in hopes that recent appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court will find them constitutional. The Senate Science and Technology Committee approved the bill on a party-line vote of 3 to 2 on Monday. Women in Georgia have the legal right to seek abortions during the first 20 weeks of a pregnancy. A fetal heartbeat is generally detectable at around six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Similar measures are moving through legislatures in Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, and South Carolina.
  • The Supreme Court is rejecting a new appeal from a Georgia death row inmate, despite evidence that a juror in his capital case used racial slurs. The high court had previously blocked the execution of Georgia inmate Keith Leroy Tharpe. But the justices on Monday refused to take up his case after a lower court ruled against him. The 59-year-old Tharpe is trying to get his death sentence thrown out because of comments the juror made to defense investigators several years after Tharpe's trial. The juror signed an affidavit, though he later testified that he voted for Tharpe's death sentence because of the evidence against him. The juror has since died. Lower courts have ruled Tharpe can't use the juror's statement. Tharpe was convicted of killing his sister in law.
  • St. Johns County deputies are searching for three men who posed as maintenance workers to steal a claw machine from a Walmart in St. Augustine. According to an incident report, a repair man came to service the claw machine at the store located at 2355 US 1 South in St. Johns County, when he noticed the machine was missing.  After contacting his manager, who said they did not take the machine, he told an assistant manager at Walmart that it was missing.  According to the report, the Walmart employee said someone called the store and said they were picking up the broken claw machine for repairs.  They reviewed surveillance video, where deputies said three people were seen taking the machine, but they were not repair employees.  The repair man told deputes that a similar incident happened in Gainesville.  The men were seen driving an older, white Ford F-150. Police are working to identify the three people.
