2023 Baseball Filing Competition

Haub Law's negotiation team advanced to the semi-finals in the Villanova Baseball Filing Day Competition held November 3-4 at Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. Under the coaching of Pace Alumni, Dan Masi ‘14, the 3L team of Devin Auriana and Crystal Lichtenberger won all three rounds of negotiations on Day 1 and advanced to Day 2, where they had 12 hours to prepare for the quarter-finals round. After winning the quarter-finals round, Devin and Crystal narrowly missed out on advancing to the finals, falling to the eventual champions.

The Villanova Baseball Filing Day Competition is a simulated exercise intended to mimic negotiations between MLB Players Association (MLBPA) player agents and MLB club executives before the salary arbitration Exchange Date between the MLB Labor Relations Department and the MLBPA as governed by Major League Baseball's Basic Agreement. Participants build oral advocacy and negotiation skills while handling baseball statistics and player valuation information in order to come to resolution with opposing counsel.
