4th Annual National Baseball Arbitration Competition, Feb. 10-11, 2011

February 08, 2011

The National Baseball Arbitration Competition is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball (MLB). Like most law school moot court competitions, the National Baseball Arbitration Competition's main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills. The competition, however, is unique in that it allows law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of MLB's salary arbitration proceedings.

This year, the competition will feature a symposium where a number of our guest arbitrators will discuss issues impacting Major League Baseball. As of now, the lineup of arbitrators and speakers includes:

  • Michael Weiner, Executive Director and General Counsel, Major League Baseball Players Association.
  • Jon Fetterolf, Partner, Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington D.C.
  • Larry Silverman, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Pittsburgh Pirates.
  • Carter DeLorme, Partner, Jones Day in Washington D.C.; performs salary arbitration work for the Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers.
  • Clark Griffith, Attorney; AAA Arbitrator; former Owner and Executive Vice President of the Minnesota Twins and former Chairman of Major League Baseball Properties.
  • Fernando Tamayo, former International Scouting Coordinator for the Boston Red Sox.
  • Darren Heitner, CEO, Dynasty Athlete Representation; Chief Editor, SportsAgentBlog.com.
  • Jorge Arangure Jr., Senior Writer, ESPN The Magazine.
  • Josh Byrnes, Vice President of Baseball Operations, San Diego Padres.
  • David P. Fidler, Co-author, Stealing Lives: The Globalization of Baseball and the Tragic Story of Alexis Quiroz.
