Arbitration and Free Agency

Part of the Sports Economics, Management and Policy book series (SEMP, volume 1)


The first collective bargaining agreement was negotiated in 1968 and has been modified over time. The current agreement in Major League Baseball was negotiated to expire after the 2011 season. In this chapter, we analyze arbitration cases and nontendered free agents. In most cases, after the player or team files for arbitration, a settlement is reached, negating the need for a hearing.
