A friend of mine, and writer for UCLA Today published a story on a new book by UCLA law professor Stuart Banner:

http://today.ucla.edu/portal/ut/law-pro ... 46212.aspx

A quote from the interview:

Quote:
Why did you want to write this book?

Baseball’s exemption from antitrust law is something that is well-known to sports fans, because it’s mentioned in the media a lot. It always struck me as a puzzle: Why does baseball have this legal advantage over other sports? I wrote the book because I wanted to figure out how this situation came to be.
