Hailey: The anatomy of a murder: Federal League and the courts

From SABR member John Thorn at Our Game on June 22, 2015:

Gary Hailey wrote this splendidly detailed story about the Federal League for The National Pastime, a publication I created for the Society for American Baseball Research in 1982. Gary submitted this story for the Spring 1985 number, for which I continued to serve as editor. It is my privilege to reprint it in this space, in serial form. While Dan Levitt has recently issued a marvelous book on the subject, The Outlaw League and the Battle That Forged Modern Baseballit may be said that he owed a good deal to Hailey’s pioneering effort. A 1977 graduate of Harvard Law School, Hailey is a partner in the Washington, DC office of Venable LLP. He is also a father of four, a basketball referee, a biker, a voracious reader, and the author of a wildly popular music blog, www.2or3lines.blogspot.com.
