A serious baseballl fan, Banner provides a thoroughly entertaining history of the game as seen through the prism of an extraordinary series of courtroom battles, ranging from 1890 to the present. The book examines such pivotal cases as the 1922 Supreme Court case which held that federal antitrust laws did not apply to baseball; the 1972 Flood v. Kuhn decision that reaffirmed the exemption; and two cases from the 1950s, one involving boxing and the other football, that made clear that the exemption is only for baseball, not for sports in general. Banner reveals that for all the well-documented foibles of major league owners, baseball has consistently received and followed advice from leading lawyers; shrewd legal advice that eventually won for baseball a protected legal statuts enjoyed by no other industry in America"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
