Supreme Court Rules Baseball is NOT a Business

November 9, 1953
Reaffirming its earlier position, the United States Supreme Court rules, 7-2, baseball is a sport and not a business. This decision exempts baseball from anti-trusts laws

Comment: I rarely comment on the baseball history but this one is ridiculous. Baseball is a business. If it wasn't a business would there be complaints about the over priced tickets or the multi million dollar salaries? Would the Yankees, Red Sox and Dodgers not have made a profit? Would teams like the Pirates be looking for tax loopholes? Baseball is a business and needs to pay its fair share because it is a business.
