Biographical Information[edit]

Mark Irvings was appointed as official Arbitrator by Major League Baseball in June of 2017, replacing Fredric Horowitz who had been fired the previous November.

After obtaining a degree in dispute resolution and labor economics from Harvard University and a law degree from Northeastern University, he began working in the field of alternative dispute resolution in 1975 and was admitted to the National Academy of Arbitrators in 1981. He is based in Boston, MA. He became one of the most prominent practitioners in the field of arbitration in New England.

That helped to distinguish him as a potential candidate to replace Horowitz after he was fired.
