Thank you for printing Joe Nocera’s commentary on the illogical exemption Major League Baseball receives from federal anti-trust laws. He is right: The usefulness of the exemption has long since passed. Nocera obviously knows baseball, and since he writes with such clarity, perhaps his next piece can be an explication of the infield fly rule.
