Rangers pitcher Jeremy Jeffress arrested, records show

Texas Rangers relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress was apparently arrested overnight in Dallas County, records show.

Dallas County Jail records say Jeffress was booked into jail at 5:13 a.m. Friday.

The reason for the arrest was not immediately made clear. No charges had been listed on the Dallas County Jail’s website. News 8 has reached out to the Rangers for comment.

MASN Dispute Won’t Be Resolved by MLB Panel

Just another baby step toward the (non) resolution of the MASN dispute between the Orioles and Nationals.

A New York Supreme Court justice ruled Monday that the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network won’t have to return next month to a Major League Baseball arbitration panel to have its long-running television rights fee dispute with the Washington Nationals decided.

Attorneys Pen First Baseball Textbook For Use In Law School Courses

Where the Roe decision has to do with 50s Brooklyn baseball!

I see a case called “Fleer Corp. v. Topps Chewing Gum, Inc.” and one called “Selig v. United States” and another called “State of Illinois v. Cicotte.”

I see a picture of George Brett going apewire in 1983, one of Ted Turner mockingly letting “umpires know he plans to keep his mouth shut during the upcoming game,” and a color version of the photo below, from the Congressional hearings on steroids in 2005. That’s Curt Schilling on the right pondering unemployment.

But “Baseball and The Law” — full name, “Baseball and the Law: Cases and Materials” (Carolina Academic Press, $120) — is like no baseball book I’ve ever had the pleasure to pick up (or, at hardback and 1040 pages, do curls with). And while I am both interested in the law and invested in baseball as a person can be, I’m not exactly among the intended audience.
