Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 12-7-2020

Washington Herald, December 7, 1920:

Baseball is sport, not commerce.

As played and conducted by organized baseball clubs it is not subject to the restrictions and penalties carried by the Sherman anti-trust law. The District Court of Appeals said so yesterday in declaring that the Federal Baseball Club of Baltimore, Md., an alleged “outlaw” organization, was not entitled to recover $264,000 damages from organized baseball because the latter, it was alleged, “squeezed” them out of business by monopolistic methods.

Welp.
