Synopsis: As the role and influence of professional sports has increased in American life, so has the relationship between the U.S. Congress and the professional sports world. Since WW II, Congress has held dozens of investigations and debated hundreds of bills on subjects such as organized baseball’s antitrust exemption, the NFL’s television blackout policy, the role of organized crime in professional boxing, the league mergers in professional football and basketball, and franchise relocations.
    Lowe provides concise, interpretive narrative of Congress’s involvement in professional sports. Testimony is included from such colorful figures as Jackie Robinson, Casey Stengel, Pete Rozelle, Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, and Don King. Leading congressmen and senators are also included.

From the Back Cover: This study provides the first comprehensive examination of the relationship between Congress and professional sports. It is not merely a catalog of all the hearings, investigations, and bills introduced to Congress in the twentieth century; rather, the work is a concise, interpretive narrative of Congress's involvement in the professional sports world. Testimony is included from such colorful figures as Ty Cobb, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Bob Feller, Casey Stengel, Charles Finley, Pete Rozelle, Don Shula, Jack Dempsey, Jersey Joe Walcott, Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, Don King, and Rick Barry. Leading members of Congress, such as Emanuel Celler, Kenneth Keating, and Jack Kemp of New York, Estes Kefauver of Tennessee, Philip Hart of Michigan, Everett Dirksen of Illinois, Sam Ervin of North Carolina, and Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, are also important to the story. It is, however a story that scholars have written about only on the periphery and of which most sports fans know little.
