Much progress has been made in baseball since the time of Curt Flood--and even since the collusion cases of the 1980s. The Major League Baseball Players Association has played a large part in orchestrating this change. Minor leaguers however belong to no such union. For this reason, none of the changes have trickled down to them. Their labor conditions are beyond deplorable, approaching that of indentured servitude: salaries below the poverty line, long and one-sided contracts, and very little bargaining power.
In Professor Wollett's opinion, the formation of a union could help change these conditions. The obstacles are large towards accomplishing this, but the book provides a blueprint on such an execution.
If you're a law student, a baseball fan, or a law student baseball fan, then this eye opening book is required reading.
