There are many sports-related books about what happens on the playing field, but few are written about the equally interesting stories of what happens on the business side. Why acquire a professional sports team? What goes into the branding, marketing and entertainment that make some teams successful, and others not? What are the challenges that managers and staff face? Are there valuable lessons from the major and minor leagues for university, high school and other amateur sports programs? How do sports teams generate a profit? While the examples are drawn from the business of baseball, the lessons are applicable to other sports and many retail businesses.

Solomon has been a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a partner on Wall Street, a real estate developer and the owner of two minor league baseball teams which have been awarded the Larry MacPhail and Bob Freitas awards.

Review:

"Whether curious fans or aspiring executives, readers will welcome this hands-on guide to building and managing a successful minor league baseball club. With stories and examples, Arthur Solomon shares his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to take us behind the scenes of the real world of club ownership and management, where he has been so successful." --Stephen A. Greyser, Harvard Business School
