Beyond the highly publicized heroics and foibles of players and teams, when the
grandstands are empty and the scoreboards dark, there is a world of sport about which
little is known by even the most ardent fan. It is the business world of sport; it is characterized by a thirst for power and money, and its players are just as active as those
on the professional teams they oversee. Here, some of the best scholars in the field use
examples from baseball, football, basketball, and hockey to illuminate the significant
economic, legal, social, and historic aspects of the business of professional sports.
