Power, prestige, and millions of dollars-these are the stakes in
the sports franchise game. In this book, sports attorney Kenneth
Shropshire describes the franchise warfare that pits city against
city in the fierce bidding competition to capture major league
teams. Rigorous research, fascinating interviews with major
players, stories behind the headlines, and an insider's perspective
converge in this rare view of the business side of professional
sports. Shropshire portrays a complex web of motivations,
negotiations, and public relations, and discusses examples from
Philadelphia, the Bay Area, and Washington D.C.
