Here’s some business of baseball tidbits for Friday, February 27, 2009
Washington Times sports business reporter Tim Lemke is having a chat at 1PM ET. Tim’s exceptionally good at covering the business of sports, so head on over, submit a question, and check it out.
Bloomberg News reports that the US Anti-Doping Agency is funding efforts for the first urine test to detect hGH.
Neil Best of Newsday reports that the Yankees will be lowering the price of obstructed view bleacher seats at the new Yankee Stadium from $12 to $5 for the upcoming season. This after fans got worked up over limited season-ticket plans for the Yankees.
Finally, we’ve received a number of inquires regarding publications of the Red and Green Books following our story yesterday. Seems a number of researchers wondered if we planned to republish them in full. The answer is no, as the league has them copyrighted. Those that are interested in receiving copies need to contact the league to make a request. If interested, drop me a line, and I will put you in touch.
