Based on an annual report released by the MLB Players Association, the average salary in MLB for the 2011 season was $3,095,183, up $80,611 or 3 percent from 2010.

The Angels jump from an end of year ranking of 13 to 4 this year, presumably due to the Vernon Wells trade posting an average salary by mean at $4,584,746 for 28 players.

At the bottom end, the Royals posted the lowest mean of $1,335,672 for 26 players).

Rockies Organizational ReportIn a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that is becoming one the most all-rounded in baseball: The Colorado Rockies.

Are the Colorado Rockies an aberration or the real deal? Has the team that struggled for years developed an identity, an identity based around young talent with a strong management team?

The Rockies early beginnings all started with the city of Denver showing their support in a way that was beyond what the other cities could provide. In December 1990, the NL announced that Denver, South Florida (which would land the Florida Marlins), Tampa-St. Pete, Orlando, Washington, D.C., and Buffalo were finalists for expansion teams.

Why was Colorado the front-runner? The fans and the city. The Denver-area voters on their own accord began implementing a 0.1% sales tax that would help finance the construction on the team’s stadium.

Denver’s commitment to excellence was shown early in 1991, as discussed by Chuck Javernick, who was head of the ticket selling team at those early stages. Chuck is now the director of ticketing services and Spring Training business operations. The goal was to sell 20,000 tickets from the start.

“It took us four weeks to accomplish it and go beyond, "We went over 21,000 season ticket commitments.” I’m a big baseball fan and a native of Colorado, so I believed in it. And I had worked with the Colorado Baseball Partnership for some time prior and talked to a lot of people who felt the same way."

At the beginning, the fane base was never in question, but the early ownership and their finances were.

Original ownership led by Michael I. Monus who was accused of embezzling funds and falsifying profits at Phar-Mor Inc. was in legal trouble due to a $350 million fraud scandal that almost doomed the team from the get-go. Jerry McMorris, the highest-ranking official in the ownership group along with business partner Charlie Monfort saved the team. Roy Romer, who at the time was governor, played an integral part in saving the franchise.

"Gov. Romer had several meetings with the partners and really got behind the project," McMorris said. "There was one meeting early on when he went around the room -- 'Who are you and how much money do you have?' He did what was necessary."

Of those above-mentioned possible franchise locations, only two were chosen; the aforementioned city of Colorado and Florida. Florida who would later become the Marlins will have their own financial issues to deal with.

Fay Vincent, who was the MLB Commissioner at the time, announced that both leagues would be involved to compensate the newly appointed franchises, sharing revenue generated by the $190 million expansion fee. The American and National Leagues would both contribute players in the upcoming expansion draft (read The Biz of Baseball interview with Fay Vincent).

On July 5, 1991 at a local press conference, the team was unveiled to the public. The team would begin play at Denver’s Mile High Stadium, home of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League. Mile Hile was a starting point for the team until Coors Field would be open to play on Apr. 26, 1995.

Red Sox Org Report

In a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that has been one of the most successful in all of baseball: The Boston Red Sox.

After years of heartbreak, the Boston Red Sox are quite arguably the crown jewel of Major League Baseball, the epitome of the way a team can be run. Building through the draft, and a vision of excellence in the front office, the Red Sox Nation has been continuously growing in the past five years. Why have the Red Sox been able to sustain excellence while one set of teams continue to struggle despite brief success; Detroit Tigers, and others have put together a historic streak of losing; Pittsburgh Pirates.

A level of success was born when former Florida Marlins owner John Henry teamed up with Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino. They,  along with other investors, purchased the team from the Jean R. Yawkey trust, for $700 million in 2002. Since the merger, the Red Sox have four post-season appearances in the last five years and two World Series Championships; 2004 defeating the St. Louis Cardinals and in 2007 defeating the Colorado Rockies.

However, what specifically is it that the Red Sox do that set them apart from the rest of the teams. If you dissect the team, they do three things very well, Player Development, Office and Field Management and a strong fan base.

YankeesIn a continuation of The Biz of Baseball’s Organizational Reports, we are now featuring the franchise that most clubs are envious of, and all strive to defeat: The New York Yankees.

The 2009 New York Yankees are looking like the team that will pull out all of the stops to win another championship. This is not the team that won 3 out of 4 Championships in the late 90’s to 2000; this is the Yankee team, which will spend as much as it can, to get what it wants. The Yankees are playing “Moneyball”, but their own version.

Sabathia, Teixeira, Burnett

The team began its rebuilding stage for only one reason: 89 wins, and zero playoff games last season. How do you solve a problem like that? Spend $423.5 million dollars, on two starters, C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and a first baseman that could have possible created the best 1st and 3rd corners in the game, Mark Teixeira. As A.J. Burnett put it, “Whether you want to admit it or you love them or you hate them everybody wants to be a Yankee.” A.J. Burnett has been at best, a number two starter up until last year, making 34 starts, but in the previous four years, his starts go something like this…..25, 21, 32 and 19. Those figures, however, still landed him with a 5 year, $82.5 million deal with the Bronx Bombers. Will Burnett be able to handle the high profile of New York? Possibly, but when the pressure was on in Toronto, apologies were made to the Blue Jays fans after a sarcastic wave of the hat to the crowd after of string of bad starts. Are we looking at legit number two or “Black Jack” McDowell?

The Yankees have also added C.C. Sabathia, the plum of this year's free agency crop, signing the eight year veteran to a staggering 7-year, $161 million dollar deal. The Yankees will hold their collective breaths this year, hoping Sabathia is healthy and holds up under the pressure of the New York media market. You never know how a player willl perform under the glare of being a Yankee, but here are a couple stats, both good and bad for the organization. Burnett is 6-3 lifetime against the Yankees and 5-0 vs. the Boston Red Sox. Sabathia, however, owns a 1-8 lifetime record against the Yankees, while going 2-4 against the Red Sox. Teixeira on the other hand solves a nasty problem that has been plaguing the Yankees for a few years: hitting against left-handed pitching. Last year they were 10-15 while facing lefties on the road, and Teixeira brings a lifetime .309 average against lefties replacing Jason Giambi’s 2008 average of .231.

Astros Organizational ReportThe following is a continuation of our Organizational Reports, filed by Devon Teeple and Maury Brown. As with the prior reports for the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Pittsburgh Pirates, this report delves into the Houston Astros historically, financially, and from a facility perspective. -- Maury Brown

The Astrodome, Enron Field and now Minute Maid Park.

Wherever the Houston Astros seem to play, it is always involving some historical point.

The Astrodome billed as the eight-wonder of the world, by the Astros original owner Judge Roy Hofheinz, the Astrodome was the first professional baseball stadium to have a roof over the playing field. It also had “Skyboxes” which we are so used of in today’s game and a two million dollar scoreboard. The ceiling was covered with these cream-colored panels, but the ball was too difficult to see, so the tiles were painted and thus, the grass died. The Astros to the rescue, this led to an artificial grass being installed in the stadium known as Astroturf. The first game was played in 1966.

Fast-forward to 1996. The Houston Oilers are going to leave town and it’s time for the “Stros” to join the revolution and get a new stadium equally known for its name as well as its style. On May 20 1996, it was recommended that Houston and Harris County spend approximately $625 million to build a new baseball stadium downtown and to redo the Astrodome for football and rodeo. According to Astros owner Drayton McLane Jr. he said a new stadium would bring the team closer to the downtown community and it would bring business owners, bar owners, and restaurants and hotels in excess of $60,000,000 in revenue, which included the following teams, baseball, football and basketball. On November 5, 1996, Harris County voters approved the construction of a ballpark in downtown Houston. The park would cost, upon review $265,000,000, with a retractable roof, natural grass, and encompassed nearly 25 acres of downtown Houston, near the old Union Station. To make itself more accessible to fans, the streets surrounding the stadium are; Texas, Congress, Crawford, and US Highway 59.

It would take nearly three years of construction before the stadium was completed. On April 7, 1999, the Houston based American energy company Enron agreed to pay more than $100,000,000 over the next 30 years to have the stadium named Enron Field. Unfortunately, at the end of 2001 it was revealed that it’s reported financial condition was sustained substantially by institutionalized, systematic, creatively planned accounting fraud, and became the largest corporation in history to declare bankruptcy. On June 5, 2002, the Houston Astros and the Minute Maid Company announced the expansion of their relationship, and created a long-term marketing and community relationship. The agreement included naming rights and thus Enron Field was know known as Minute Maid Park. With the new name change also came some agreements between Houston and Minute Maid which state that the widely popular Minute Maid Squeeze Play attraction at the park continue for the 28 years of the agreements also including the pouring rights for Coca-Cola company, continuous marketing and full commitment by Minute Maid to help sponsor and support the youth baseball programs in the Houston and surrounding areas. The Minute Maid Family of brands is produced and sold by The Coca-Cola Company – The world’s leading marketer of premium fruit juices and drinks. Thanks to this Coca-Cola connection, there is access to an extraordinary system for production, distribution, research, product development and marketing.

To breakdown the Astros and their rise to prominence, it should begin with Houston Astros owner, Robert Drayton McLane Jr. In 2008, McLane will begin his 16th season Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. McLane’s philosophy has remained consistent throughout his tenure; provide the city with a winning team and having a strong and positive influence in the community. Since the purchase of the team in 1993, the Astros rank second in the National League and fifth in the Majors in winning percentage (.534) over 15 seasons from 1993-2007. Since 1998, the Astros have attained an astonishing amount of success, which can compete with the run of the Yankees and the Braves. Since 1998, they have made the post-season in six of those, with Wild Card berths in 2004, and 2005, along with Division Titles in 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2001. Along with all those accolades McLane’s highlight, was 2001 as the Astros were the Organization of the Year by four separate media outlets; TOPPS, SportsTicker, Baseball America and Baseball Weekly.

When Minute Maid Park opened in 2000, the city of Houston did not realize the resurgence that this would have on the team and the city. For the fourth time since its inception in 2000, Minute Maid Park reached the three million fan mark in 2007, making it the second consecutive year in a row, and third time in the last four years.

Drayton McLane, and His Ownership

With McLane being the headstone of this franchise, success has not only been on the playing field but in the boardroom as well. In his 15-year tenure he has served on several MLB committees, including the Executive Committee, Finance Committee, Legislative Affairs, Ownership and Realignment committees, and the MLB Advanced Media committee. Throughout all of this, McLane’s goal was to be a contributing factor in the community. McLane’s first course of action was the Astros in Action Foundation. Its mission statement is as follows; “Through the strength of the National Pastime, we will enhance the quality of life in our community through educational, health, and spiritual endeavors. We support the efforts of non-profit organizations or programs related to: Literacy, Education/ Scholarships, Health Issues, Faith Based Organizations, and Reviving Baseball in the Inner City”. This foundation was introduced publicly on September 16, 2000 at the Jim Rome World Tour Stop #22 at MinuteMaid Park. Over the past few years the organization has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to causes such as, Tropical Storm Allison and the 9/11 attacks, helping the Enron Employee Transition Fund, and endowing the Houston Astros Adolescent Patient Waiting Area at M.D. Anderson Cancer Hospital. Needless to say, his community outreach does not end there, find below a list of more of the boards and committee’s that Robert Drayton McLane Jr. is a part of;

  • Actively involved with the Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research, Greater Houston Partnership, and the United Way.
  • Serves as Chairman of the Board of Scott & White Hospital
  • immediate past chairman of Baylor University
  • On the board of directors of The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University
  • Provides leadership as an officer of the executive committee of the National Boy Scouts of America.

The Impact of Tal Smith

Another key asset that the Houston Astros have in their deck is President of Baseball Operations, Tal Smith (read The Biz of Baseball interview with Tal Smith). Not only is Tal Smith one of the most revered baseball men in recent memory, according to Bill Conlin of the Philadelphia Daily news, he is “the King of the SABR-rattlers”. Tal Smith has been involved in baseball and baseball numbers since his days at Duke and keeping major league fielding stats and all the minor league fielding stats for Sporting News. Smith moved his way up the baseball ranks achieving the role of General Manager of the Houston Astros culminating in a National League Championship Series berth in 1980 against the eventual World Series Champion; Philadelphia Phillies. Unfortunately, in a move that shocked baseball world, John McMullen fired Smith as his general manager. Despite his success, Smith formed his own company as owner and operator of Tal Smith Enterprises, “a firm which has provided consulting services to 26 of the 30 Major League clubs. The most recognized functions have been in the preparation and presentation of salary arbitration cases (where Tal's firm has handled over 900 filings and tried over 150 cases), operational reviews, the financial appraisal of franchises and testimony as an expert witness in sports-related litigation. Tal also served as the sole arbitrator in two disputes involving Major League Baseball where the Commissioner was recused”.

Since returning to the club in 1994 as President, Smith has been an immense help to the Astros owner. Not only being a vital piece of the puzzle when it comes to the salary negotiations, Smith was heavily involved with the many stages of development of Minute Maid Park. The design and angles of stadium are unique and were designed with the assistance from Smith. If you look at Center Field, it has a hill "Tal's Hill", a ten degree incline, which was a tribute to his creativity and contribution to the MinuteMaid Park project. Tal’s Hill was designed with the purpose of having a feel of the baseball stadiums from the past, an element was taken from Crosley Field and the flagpole which is in play, is a design from Yankee stadium before it was redone in the mid 70’s. He also had a role similar to that, with stadium development in the early 1960’s when he became assistant to the president of the Houston Sports Association, acting primarily as a liaison for HSA and its' president, Judge Roy Hofheinz, during the construction of the Astrodome, a project which changed the face of stadiums and the city of Houston forever. For a more in-depth and detailed view of Tal Smith and his accomplishments find a link to Maury Brown’s interview with Smith from May 16, 2005 here.

The Addition of Ed Wade

The last piece of the Houston Astros puzzle, which is their plan to lead the team to further success, is current General Manager, Ed Wade. Wade became the 11th General Manager is Astros history on September 20 2007. In Wade, the Astros hired an executive who has been involved in every aspect of the game; from media relations to scouting, to General Manager. His recent experience includes being a professional scout for the San Diego Padres and before that serving as General Manager of the Philadelphia Phillies from 1998-2005 after serving as the club’s Assistant General Manager. Based upon his 31 years of experience, Wade was selected over several candidates who are currently serving as Assistant GM’s; Bob Watson, Jim Beattie, and Dan Evans, but the Astros wanted someone who had General Manager experience; Wade, won out.

As mentioned above, Wade has over 31 years of baseball experience, which began in 1997 as an intern in Phillies PR department. In 1981, Wade left Houston to become the public relations director for the Pittsburgh Pirates where he stayed for 5 years. In 1986, he returned to the Houston area where worked as an associate for Tal Smith Enterprises, and as discussed earlier, the firm provided consulting services to 26 of the MLB clubs.

In terms of value, the Astros may be the model of consistency. Never flashy (the highest they have ranked since 2002 is 9th), the club has ranked no worst than 12th since moving into Enron/Minute Maid Park, and has pulled operating income (a measure of profit) in the tens of millions over the last three years (2008 - $20.4 million, 2007 - $18.4 million, 2006 - $30.2 million).

Even with the club sitting 13 games out of first in the NL Central, Houston currently ranks 11th in league attendance at an average of 36,246. Yet again, attendance is a matter of consistency posting 10th in 2007 (37,288), 8th in 2006 (37,318), 10th in 2005 (34,530), 7th in 2004 (38,121), 12th in 2003 (30,299), and 14th in 2002 (31,078).

Conclusions

The Astros never seem to rock to the boat. Drayton McLane and Tal Smith keep a tight ship in terms of the percentage of player payroll to revenues, have fielded teams that have been competitive in recent years winning the Division in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, Wild Card in 2004, and the National League Championship in 2005. That has kept fans interested in coming our year after year, if not at stupendous levels, at least at levels that keep the engine humming.

Minute Maid Park, with its quirky additions (Tal’s Hill, flagpole in play, and a train), is a consistent draw. The Astros draw as should be expected for the market, which coupled with the moderate payroll, keeps the club competitive, and for ownership, profitable.

The jury is still out on Ed Wade. His most notable moment this season seems to be the altercation with Shawn Chacon – a moment that seems to be historical in nature. With the team sitting in 4th, there are good chances that the “winning ways” may be in the rear view mirror for a bit in Houston leaving one to wonder what next year might hold.

Dodgers Org Report

The following is a continuation of our Organizational Reports, filed by Devon Teeple. As with the prior reports for San Diego Padres, the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Pittsburgh Pirates, this report delves into the Los Angeles Dodgers historically, financially, and from a facility perspective. -- Maury Brown

The glory years of the Dodgers are obviously behind them. Gone are the days of Kirk Gibson and Tommy Lasorda, welcome the days of Frank McCourt and Ned Colletti.

The Dodgers live in the minds of most baseball fans and historians as a franchise of historic glory. 43 Hall of Fame Players, 7 Hall of Fame Managers/Scout/Coaches, and 4 Broadcasters.  You can lay claim that they are one of the most significant innovators in baseball; having led baseball's move to the west coast, broke the color barrier with Jackie Robinson, televised the first baseball game ever (at Ebbets Field in 1939) and introduced the batting helmet in 1941. Since the ultimate Dodger championship year of 1988, the Dodgers have been a stranger to post-season. Despite the sluggishness of late, this is still a franchise that has earned its reputation for success with six World Championships and twenty-one pennants, nine Cy Young Award winners, ten MVPs and an incredible sixteen Rookie of the Year recipients.

If you look at the Los Angeles Dodgers from a financial perspective, the team is in the driver’s seat. The Dodgers are no longer just a Major League Baseball team, but a product that has accentuated the positives and has made itself into something bigger. Other professional sports teams that have joined this realm of status are the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Lakers, and the New York Knicks. These are no longer events to attend a sporting event, though that is the main idea, it is now a gathering of Hollywood A-Listers and high profile celebrities; Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Ron Howard, Larry King, Shia LaBeouf, Matt Leinart, Jay Leno, Al Michaels, Freddy Prinze Jr., Tiger Woods, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

News Corp. Purchases Dodgers 

The transition from baseball team to high profile gathering spot began in the late 1990’s, specifically on March 19, 1998 with the purchase of the team by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, owner of the Fox Network (which owns broadcast rights to MLB games) and 20th Century Fox., (In 2007, Fox no longer has rights to League Division Series games, and has only one League Championship Series per year.) One of the new owners first moves was to trade away highly popular catcher Mike Piazza and on June 21, 1998 the Dodgers fired general manager Fred Claire (read The Biz of Baseball interview with Fred Claire) and manager Bill Russell. Tommy Lasorda is hired as interim general manager, Glenn Hoffman is named interim manager. Hoffman’s interim stay was just that, replaced by “celebrity manager” Davey Johsnon the following season.

Fans were used to the O’Malley’s way of running a team, hands on, and personal and development through the ranks; from 1992-1996 the Dodgers had the "Rookie of the Year " in their organization. Murdoch’s corporation was a little different giving out enormous contracts to players such as Kevin Brown, and Darren Dreifort. This inevitably tied up money that could have been used for others things.  The Dodgers have achieved financial success as a franchise with a team that has not enjoyed nearly the amount of success they have had in the past. Attendance has increased nearly 30% since 1998. Of all the Major League baseball teams currently in existence, the Angels and the Dodgers rank second on the list behind the New York Yankees in with the population of their respective cities. New York City has a population of 18.323 million while Los Angeles is second with 12.366 million.

Padres Organizational ReportThe following is a continuation of our Organizational Reports, filed by Devon Teeple. As with the prior reports for the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Pittsburgh Pirates, this report delves into the San Diego Padres historically, financially, and from a facility perspective. -- Maury Brown

The San Diego Padres franchise name was derived from the Pacific Coast League team, which had been in the city since 1936.  That same team won the PCL title in 1937 led by then 18-year-old Ted Williams.  In 1969 Major League Baseball was looking to expand into four new markets; the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals), the Kansas City Royals, the Seattle Pilots (now the Milwaukee Brewers), and finally the San Diego Padres.

The original owner was C. Arnholt Smith, a prominent San Diego businessman and former owner of the PCL Padres.  Though the initial excitement was well deserved, the first few years in San Diego were anything but successful.  Even with the guidance of Buzzie Bavasi, and a brand new playing field, the team placed last in each of its first six seasons, losing 100 games in four of them.  One of the few bright spots in that time was Nate Colbert and expansion draftee from the Houston Astros and as of 2007, was still the team’s all-time homerun leader with 163.  C. Arnholt Smith, who brought the team to San Diego, was also looking to sell the team as well.  As a businessman looking to make profit on an initial investment, he could tell after the first few years that this was an impossible idea.  Before the 1974 season began Smith, was on the verge of selling the team, but there were a few issues standing in his way.  Smith was a businessman, not a baseball man.  On July 17 2005, Maury Brown, Founder and President of “The Business of Sports Network”, conducted a interview with Mr. Buzzie Bavasi; President and part owner of the San Diego Padres from 1968-1977, to discuss the issues as mentioned above.

BizBall: Let’s talk about C. Arnholt Smith and the selling of the Padres. What was your reaction to him trying to sell the Padres to Joe Dansansky, without the League’s permission, with the idea of moving the franchise to DC the year after DC had lost the Senators?

Bavasi: It was tough to make some of those people understand. He thought that if he owned it he could sell the team. Didn’t realize he had to get permission, and I told him when he called and he said he sold the club for $12.5 million and I said, “You can’t do that without permission from the league.” He couldn’t understand that. Found out that he had to have permission. He just didn’t understand the rules and regulations of baseball. But he was a good owner. He really was at the time. I think he favored the club, I think he favored the operation. But of course he didn’t know what he was doing.

BizBall: What did you make of Ray Kroc when he was mentioned as a possible owner candidate for the Padres?

Bavasi: He was a good one. I loved that about Ray. To know Ray is to love him.  He was a great guy. Great man. You wouldn’t know Ray had fifteen cents if you were around him all the time. But Ray Kroc loved the game of baseball as Gene Autry did. Loved the game. Loved the players. As a matter of fact, sometimes he loved them too much. But I’ll never forget, Don Lubin called me and told me he had a buyer for the club and I said, “Who?” And he said, “Ray Kroc” and I said, “Who’s he?” and he said, “Well, he owns 6,000 shares of McDonald’s.” To myself, I said, “McDonald’s is selling for $2.” But that was McDonnell-Douglas. I made a mistake. It was selling for $50. But when he took over this club, it was the greatest thing in the history of the town because he saved the club from being shipped out.

In the following seasons, there was not much to be happy about in San Diego.  Two things brought up good thoughts of the Padres in the upcoming years; 1984, and Tony Gwynn.  The 1984 San Diego Padres achieved the unthinkable and made it to the World Series only to get steam-rolled by a Detroit Tigers teams who were on pace for greatness from game one.  A 35-5 start to the season, 104 victories and a team that consisted of Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell and a staff led by Jack Morris, Dan Petry and Willie Hernandez.  Though the season brought great accomplishments, one main stay was Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn.  We are all familiar with Gwynn’s accomplishments, a career .338 batting average, 3141 hits, 16x all-star 5 gold gloves, but one thing that Gwynn shared in common with his team the Padres; was there strive for success.  Rough years were ahead, but in November 1995, things turned around with the promotion of Kevin Towers from scouting director, to General Manager.

Pirates Organizational ReportThe following is a continuation of our Organizational Reports, filed by Devon Teeple. As with the prior report for the Toronto Blue Jays, this report delves into the Pittsburgh Pirates historically, financially, and from a facility perspective. -- Maury Brown

The Pittsburgh Pirates are based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and in the National League Central Division. They were not always called the Pirates. The team has been in existence since 1876. Despite being one on the last charter teams introduced in the “National League”, the team in Pittsburgh was playing “professional baseball since the 1870’s”. Teams of those eras were called independents, who were barnstorming through the areas, not affiliated with any organization, although the players were paid salaries and were run as a business organization. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh_Pirates). In 1882, the strongest barnstorming team was introduced into the American Association as a founding member. The team in those days was called the “Alleghenys”, as they were their stadium was located across from the Allegheny River. After five so-so seasons in the A.A., they were introduced into the “National League” in 1887. In 1890, they were merged with the “Players League” franchise in the city after that league folded. The majority of the players’ contract in the defunct league were sold to teams in the National League and the American Association. Most notably, highly regarded Philadelphia Athletic second baseman Lou Bierbaue, who's contract was sold to the Pittsburgh, on the grounds that the Athletic’s had not reserved him.

The Athletics protested and one American Association official called the Allegheny’s actions “Piratical”. The accusations did not stand and the team was cleared of any wrongdoing, however they made light of the situation and began calling themselves the “Pirates” for the 1890 season. The team first acknowledged the new nickname on their uniforms in 1912, and followed that up by having the worst record in team history, going 23-113.

The Pittsburgh Pirates as we have known them for years have had tremendous success not only in the standings but also with Hall of Fame caliber players. The team has accumulated 9 Eastern Division titles, 9 National League Pennants, and 5 World Series Championships, with the last being in 1979. Their Hall of Fame inductees include the Legendary, Jack Chesbro, Waite Hoyt, Ralph Kiner, Rabbit Marranville, Bill Mazeroski, Willie Stargell, Pie Traynor, Honus Wagner, Lloyd Waner, Paul Waner, and Roberto Clemente. Unfortunately, all good things do come to an end, and the glory years of the Pirates have long since past, with one of the last images of the great Pirate teams, Sid Bream scoring the winning run against them in game seven of the 1992 NLCS. 

Since then the Pirates have endured what is now considered a historic losing dynasty. As reported by Jonah Keri of ESPN's Page2. The following teams have a history of losing, but not just losing, losing year after year. The Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates, Tampa Rays, Kansas City Royals, and The Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals have combined to have a losing record in the past 54 of 55 years. The Pirates have had 15 straight losing seasons, and you can look at a few key points as to why that is happening. Failing to rebuild a depleted farm system is one of them.

Blue Jays Orgainzational ReportWith www.bizofbaseball.com expanding and branching out into new content areas, we have decided to add an additional category under our MLB News section called Organization Reports. An Organizational Report will give a detailed look into a team, through their corporate affairs, finances, lineups and farm hands. Today we look at the Toronto Blue Jays.

While Devon Teeple is the longest standing staff member of the Business of Sports Network as a researcher, this is his first published work. Please, welcome Devon. - Maury Brown

The Toronto Blue Jays are located in Toronto Ontario Canada, with a population of 5,113,149[1]. The Blue Jays have been part of the Eastern Division of Major League Baseball’s American League since its inaugural year of 1977 as an expansion franchise with it home stadium being Exhibition Stadium[2]. In 1989, the team was moved into what was then the Skydome. The Skydome was the first of its kind when opened, being the first full functional retractable roof stadium, which allowed sporting events to be played indoors, and outdoors.

Opening ceremonies took place on June 3, 1989 with over 60,000 people witnessing the event. The first game took place two days later on June 5, 1989, with an attendance mark of over 50,000. The stadium was renamed The Rogers Centre after the purchase of the stadium by Rogers Communications in 2005. The Rogers Center has many eye-opening features besides the retractable roof. It has over 350 rooms, 70 of which have a overtop view of the playing field. Along with “Windows/Hard Rock Café” restaurant, you know this from the times Carlos Delgado hit homeruns off it! The pitchers mound is lowered hydraulically when the field is need for football purposes. This allows the local CFL Football Team Toronto Argonauts use of the field. It is also the home of the annual International Bowl and most recently the second home to Buffalo Bill football games. In 2004, the Astroturf was replaced with Field turf.


[1] It is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth-most populous municipality in North America.[5] Toronto is at the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and is part of a densely-populated region in south-central Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe which is home to 8.1 million residents.[6][7][8] The census metropolitan area (CMA) had a population of 5,113,149,[1] and the Greater Toronto Area had a population of 5,555,912 in the 2006 Census. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto

[2] Exhibition Stadium (in full, Canadian National Exhibition Stadium or CNE Stadium) was a stadium that formerly stood on the Exhibition Place grounds in Toronto, Ontario. Originally built for Canadian football and other events, the stadium was reconfigured in the mid-1970s, and served as the home of the Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball team from 1977-1989. It also served as the home of the Toronto Argonauts Canadian Football League team from 1959-1988. The stadium hosted the Grey Cup game twelve times over a 24-year period.

Exhibition Stadium was actually the fourth stadium to be built on the site since 1879. The covered north-side grandstand was constructed in 1948, followed by a south bleacher section for football in 1959. When converted for football in 1959, the stadium seated 33,150. [1]

The stadium was rebuilt again in the 1970s to allow the expansion Toronto Blue Jays to play there, with additional seating opposite the covered grandstand now in left field on the first base side and curving around to the third base side. It was the only major league stadium where the bleachers were covered but the main grandstand was not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exhibition_Stadium
