Major League Baseball has taken an unprecedented step in the Biogenesis of America investigation, paying a former employee of the South Florida anti-aging clinic linked to performance-enhancing drugs for documents on athletes named in the case, the New York Times reported Thursday night.
The move, according to the newspaper, came after at least one player linked to the clinic bought documents from a former employee there in order to destroy them. The Times, citing two unidentified people briefed on the matter, reported other players connected to the now-shuttered clinic have attempted to do the same in order to keep the potentially incriminating documents away from the league.
Not the usual way evidence is obtained. What could go wrong?

MLB seems to be just grasping at straws here:
Two sources familiar with the case told “Outside the Lines” that MLB was looking for a man with a similar name believed to have been a black-market PED connection for Bosch, though it turned out not to be da Silveira.
“They realize he has no involvement whatsoever with Biogenesis or distributing performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes,” said Emil Infante, who represents the 30-year-old da Silveira.

The Idaho Supreme Court decided not to impose the “Baseball Rule” of liability in the lawsuit brought by Bud Rountree, instead choosing to let a jury decide if watching baseball is an inherently dangerous activity done at the spectator’s own risk.
. . .
Rountree was injured while attending a Boise Hawks game with his wife and grandkids on Aug. 13, 2008. Rountree left his seat in the mesh-netting protected section of the stadium and was talking to someone in an area not protected by netting when he heard the crowd begin to roar. That’s when Rountree turned toward the field and was struck in the face with a foul ball, according to the ruling, and the resulting injury caused him to lose an eye.
If a jury finds the team liable for injuries to inattentive fans, who gets the shaft?
