Judge Schiff Book Receives New Award

Baseball and the Law: Cases and Materials, a law school textbook co-authored by the Seventeenth Circuit’s Judge Louis Schiff, was recently honored with a 2017 Research Award by the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR). The award honors outstanding research projects that have “significantly expanded our knowledge or understanding of baseball…” as decided by a three-judge panel within SABR. A world-wide organization, SABR boasts many major and minor league baseball officials, broadcasters and writers, as well as numerous former players. Primarily, the membership consists of "just plain fans" — anyone interested in baseball can join. While the original purpose of SABR was to band together baseball historians, statisticians and researchers, it is not necessary to engage in research to become a member.

Well done, Judge Schiff!
