Social  Media Verification  Policy
Please note the MLBPA has no way to pre determine whether a player will be verified or not, as we do not have any control over the internal decisions of the social media platforms.
Before submitting for verification, please review the player’s social media accounts to verify that the profile requirements are all met.
 
Failure to do so may lead to your request being denied by the social media platforms.

Due to COVID-19 we've received alerts from the platform that responses for verification requests may be delayed.
