Congressman Proposes
Sports Antitrust Law


Rodriguez Upset by Blubaugh, 9-3;

Keating (R-N.Y.) said last night
he will ask Congress to put the
strictly business aspects of pro-
fessional sports under the federal
antitrust laws and to free from
such regulation those aspects deal-
ing with the players.
Calling his plan "the middle-
ground approach," Keating said in
an interview it would apply to all
pay-for-hire sports, including base-
ball and football. The Supreme
inor Leaguer
Has Chance
For $100,000
COLUMBUS, Ohio (I)-If he's
lucky, some International League
player can earn $100,000 with a
single hit here this season.
The Columbus Jets have taken
out an insurance policy which will
pay $100,000 to any player, in a
regular-season league contest, who
hits a home run through a hole in
the right-center field fence.
The "catch" is that the hole
is only one-half inch larger than
the ball, and it's, located atop the
10-foot fence at the 396-foot mark.

Court has exempted baseball fromI
the antitrust laws but has declared
football subject to the laws.
The bill, which Keating said he
will introduce next week, would
place under the business category
-and subject to the antitrust
laws-such things as TV-radio
broadcasts, popcorn and soft drink
concessions arranged with the pro
teams. But player-management re-
lations and the rules of the games
would be specifically exempted
from the antitrust laws.
In the dispute over whether
basball should be brought, under
the antitrust laws or other sports
given the same exemption as base-
ball now enjoys, two other bills
have been introduced in Congress.
Other Bills 'Extreme'
Rep. E. Celler (D-N.Y.) has pro-
posed that baseball be placed un-
der the laws and Rep. Oren Harris
(D-Ark.) has proposed that other
pro sports be taken out from under
the laws.
Keating and Rep. William E.
Miller (R-N.Y.) said Celler, who is
chairman of the Antitrust subcom-
mittee of the House Judiciary Com-
mittee, plans to hold hearings on
the various bills some time in May.
At that time, they said, pro sports
leaders and some players are ex-
pected to give their views.
