Baseball and the Law

It’s October so what do Americans care about? Certainly not nine eggheads who attended Harvard or Yale law school pontificating on laws that have no personal significance to them. No, October is the time of baseball playoffs and the World Series. Does this have any relationship to law? Apparently it does. One law librarian compiled a 36-page bibliography on baseball and the law — and that was eight years ago. There are numerous works on the infield fly rule alone. No wonder Tony LaRussa was so successful as a major league manager: he was a lawyer. Read some of these works and maybe you will be successful too — as a lawyer or a baseball manager.
