Pace finishes as runner up in 2020 Tulane Baseball Arbitration Competition

January 31, 2020
Tulane Arbitration

The Pace Law Baseball Arbitration team narrowly were edged out by Fordham Law School in the finals of the 2020 Tulane Baseball Arbitration Competition by a score of 6-5. This was the second time Pace finished as runner up in the competition in the last three years. In what was described by the hosts as the closest final round in the history of the competition, the Pace team of Kelly Garrison ('20), Jake Goldstein ('20) and Megan Clancy ('21) faced off against Fordham to argue the salary of relief pitcher Josh Hader of the Milwaukee Brewers. Despite the narrow finish, the team enjoyed a successful run in the competition, defeating teams from Pepperdine, Cleveland-Marshall and Brooklyn in the preliminary rounds before besting Michigan and Virginia in the lead up to the final. The team, all new to the competition, performed spectacularly. Each round, the team was able to successfully advocate their position as either the player representative, or the general counsel for the club by using relevant baseball statistics and comparable player salaries. The competition is routinely judged by top player agents, general counsel for various clubs and other notable baseball industry executives. Congratulations to alumnus and Coach Dan Masi and the Pace Advocacy Program for this successful finish!
