Baseball Season is in Full Swing

Yes, you read that heading correctly: librarians do enjoy puns. It's been said that baseball is America's favorite pastime, and traditionally pastime has been narrowly defined as some sport or other. Alas for baseball, pastime has a broader definition, and I'd argue watching sports bloopers and/or public shaming on the Internet generally is something Americans love more than baseball. So here's to bringing all of these pastimes together: Phillies Fans' Reactions To Dan Uggla's Grand Slam Are Amazing.

My favorite pastime, of course, is reading. Here are a few baseball books in our collection for your pastime pleasure:
  • The Little White Book of Baseball Law
  • The Baseball Trust: A History of Baseball's Antitrust Exemption
  • Legal Decisions that Shaped Modern Baseball
  • Curt Flood in the Media: Baseball, Race, and the Demise of the Activist-Athlete
  • One Man Out: Curt Flood Versus Baseball
  • Legal Issues in Professional Baseball
  • May the Best Team Win: Baseball Economics and Public Policy
  • Courting the Yankees: Legal Essays on the Bronx Bombers
  • Regulating the National Pastime: Baseball and Antitrust
