Tonight, HLS’s Committee on Sports and Entertainment Law will host a panel discussion entitled, “Agents and the Changing Economic and Political Landscape of Baseball.” Baseball agent Scott Boras and the Chief Executive of the Major League Baseball Players Association, Donald Fehr, will be among the panelists. The event – which is free and open to the public – will take place on the HLS campus at 7 pm.

“Baseball agents – along with the players union – have been at the fore of almost all of the changes that have taken place over the last thirty years in baseball,” said Daniel Gorlin, an executive board member of CSEL. “Understanding the role of agents in the evolution of baseball should shed light on many of the issues that are central to baseball today including salary escalation, competitive balance and steroid use.”

Speakers bring their expertise from a range of backgrounds and professional settings including academia, the media and player representation.
