Baseball on trial : the origin of baseball's antitrust exemption by Nathaniel Grow( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Baseball on Trial, legal scholar Nathaniel Grow defies conventional wisdom to explain why the unanimous Supreme Court opinion authored by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, which gave rise to Major League Baseball's exemption from antitrust law, was correct given the circumstances of the time. Currently a billion dollar enterprise, professional baseball teams crisscross the country while the game are broadcast via radio, television, and internet coast to coast. The sheer scope of the activity would seem to embody the phrase 'interstate commerce.' Yet baseball is the only professional sport - indeed the sole industry - in the United States that currently benefits from a judicially constructed antitrust immunity. How could this be? Drawing upon recently released documents from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Grow analyzes how the Supreme Court reached this seemingly peculiar result by tracing the Federal Baseball litigation from its roots in 1914 to its resolution in 1922, in the process uncovering significant new details about the proceedings. Grow ultimately concludes that, despite the frequent criticism of the opinion, the Supreme Court's decision was consistent with the conditions and legal climate of the twentieth century"--Unedited summary from book cover
