The Biz of Baseball site has added new content...
Have you ever wondered...
- When the owners and players first agreed to form a study group on changes to the Reserve Clause binding players to their clubs indefinitely.
- When an arbitration procedure was put in place for resolving salary disputes between owners and players.
- When the owners ordered a spring training lockout, which lasted 17 days, and why.
- What all the penalty details are for the drug testing program
These, and a host of other details are now available on The Biz of Baseball as a summary of all 10 of the Collective Bargaining Agreements brokered since 1986 are now available.
This is the first part of our long range project to document the history of baseball by business. To view the CBA Summaries, select the History navigation element to the left, and from there select CBA Summaries. Or, select from the following to view them directly:
Look for more summaries of this nature in the future. This information is due in large part by the efforts of Jeff Euston, who runs Cot's Baseball Contracts.
