Some time back there was a discussion of the specifics of collusion in baseball. Mainly, the discussion centered around whether it was a violation of federal labor law (it's not, because of the anti-trust exemption) or a specific provision of the CBA. There was a great article on the web somewhere, but I've been unable to find it. I did, however, find the relevant provision in the CBA. It's Article XX(E), and states:





Players shall not act in concert with other Players and Clubs shall not act in concert with other Clubs.
