FanGraphs Audio: Doctor of Jurisprudence Nathaniel Grow

Episode 624
Nathaniel Grow is a contributor to the electronic pages of FanGraphs and also a doctor of jurisprudence, by virtue of which latter distinction he serves as a professor at the University of Georgia. Here he discusses certain issues wherein baseball and the law meet — including, but not limited to, the class-action suit which challenges Major League Baseball’s practice of assigning exclusive local broadcast territories and also the recent case of Chris Correa, the Astros’ Ground Control database, and the hacking of the latter by the former.

Carson, an easy definition: Tort law is about duties that society imposes on people, as opposed to contract law, where people voluntarily assume duties.
