Piazza and Tirendi v. Major League Baseball
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
831 F. Supp. 420 (E.D. Pa. 1993)
Two residents of Pennsylvania, Vincent Piazza (plaintiff) and Vincent Tirendi (plaintiff), were investors in a group that wanted to relocate the San Francisco Giants baseball team to Tampa, Florida. In November 1992, the National League owners rejected the group’s request to relocate the team, and Piazza and Tirendi (collectively “plaintiffs”) brought suit in federal district court against Major League Baseball (MLB) (defendant) for violations of antitrust laws and other claims. The MLB argued that the suit ought to be dismissed on the basis of baseball’s long-standing antitrust immunity.
