Players Ratify Deal

NEW YORK () -- Baseball players, as expected, ratified the proposed labor deal, officially ending the bitter four-year battle with owners.


The deal, ratified by owners last week and approved unanimously by the union's executive board led by Don Fehr, ensures no work stoppages through 2000 and includes an option that could extend the agreement through the 2001 season.


Also, less than two months after Jim Leyritz turned the World Series with a stunning home run, the New York Yankees turned his career by dealing him to the Anaheim Angels in exchange for two Class-A minor-league players.


Oakland Athletics catcher Terry Steinbach, has signed a two-year contract with the Minnesota Twins.
