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."
