The Baseball Law Reporter is Online

The link between baseball and the law is lengthy and substantial, with "base-ball" related cases first appearing in the late nineteenth century.

The main purpose of this page will be to log and brief as many baseball-related legal and intellectual property issues, court decisions and lawsuits as possible.

A quick perusal will reveal cases of every type that somehow involve Major League Baseball and its owners and players; the equipment used to play the game; injuries (some strange and some severe) occurring both on and off the field; youth baseball issues ranging from bat safety issues to gender equality; baseball's morality issues; and even lawsuits tied to significant baseball events from Nap Lajoie's 1910 batting title to Barry Bond's 73rd home run ball.
