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!

Judge Schiff Book, Baseball and the Law, Gets Elite Review

The Seventeenth Judicial Circuit’s Judge Louis Schiff has again been recognized for Baseball and the Law: Cases and Materials, a law book he co-wrote and published in 2016. The Marquette Sports Law Review, deemed by many as the most prestigious sports law journal in the United States, has published a robust, 19-page review, aimed at giving guidance to law professors who wish to teach baseball law and adopt the book.  

Reviewer Russ VerSteeg concludes his introduction of the review by saying “…Schiff and Jarvis present cases and notes that help us appreciate, understand, and gain insight into some of the most important legal and social issues of the past and present. Antitrust, labor unions and collective bargaining, civil rights (e.g., issues relating to race, gender, and sexual orientation), the reserve clause, betting, gambling, drugs (both recreational and performance-enhancing), alcohol, violence, accidents and injuries, cheating, agency, family law, immigration law, environmental law, and communication technologies (e.g., radio, television, and Internet) all enter the mix of the interface between the sport of baseball and the law. The abundance of information and wealth of knowledge that this text offers makes it an invaluable resource.”
