Summary

Abrams examines such issues as drug use and gambling, enforcement of contracts, and the rights of owners and managers. The stories he tells are not limited to his official lineup, but include appearances by a host of other characters -- from baseball magnate Albert Spaulding and New York Knickerbocker Alexander Joy Cartwright to 'Acting Commissioner' Bud Selig and Jackie Robinson. And Abrams does not limit himself to the history of baseball and the legal process but also speculates on the implications of the 1996 collective bargaining agreement and those other issues -- like intellectual property, eminent domain, and gender equity -- that may provide the all-star baseball law stories of the future.
