Barry Bonds' Record-Breaking Legacy Faces Many Legal Issues, Says Baseball Law Expert
ALBANY, N.Y., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the number of home runs by San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds continues to rise, so does the number of legal questions surrounding his historic home run hit. Some of the questions include: -- Who owns the home run ball? The line-up card? -- Should steroid users be banned from the record books? The Hall of Fame? -- Could the owner of Bonds' home run ball face a large tax bill? Professor Paul Finkelman, considered one of the world's leading experts on baseball and the law, is available as an expert resource. In 2001, Professor Finkelman was an expert witness in the suit over who owned Barry Bonds' 73rd home run ball. A professor at Albany Law School in Albany, N.Y., and a former fellow at Harvard Law School, Finkelman teaches and lectures about baseball law around the country. He has also written and researched extensively all legal aspects surrounding the sport, from contracts to steroid use. Recent papers included, "Baseball and the Rule of Law" and "Who Owns the Home Run Ball."
