Each year, Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism awards the Herb Moss Business of Baseball Scholarship to students who submit an essay on any topic related to the business of baseball.
Moss is a longtime SABR member and a 1968 graduate of the Scripps school. He established the scholarship to recognize the importance of business and economic news, and to follow his love of baseball. Moss is VP at UBS investments, which specializes in financial services.
The winning essays for 2012 are being republished in their original form at SABR.org with the permission of Herb Moss. You can read them below:
