Continuing Education Preview Event - Pinstripe Empire & Marvin Miller Course
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

On Friday, October 24, noted baseball scholars, Marty Appel and Bob Tufts, will preview their highly anticipated January 2015 continuing education courses and field questions from the gathered audience after a panel discussion moderated by Wayne McDonnell.

Appel, world-renown Yankees historian, author and public relations guru, will be teaching a course entitled, “Pinstripe Empire: A History of Baseball's Most Successful Franchise.”

Tufts, a former major league pitcher and adjunct professor at the Tisch Institute with over 20 years of experience on Wall Street, will be teaching a course entitled, “ “Marvin Miller, 20th Century Trade Unionism and Development of the Major League Baseball Players Association.”

Both courses are a labor of love for the professors. Appel will take his students on a journey that spans over a century as he helps them discover how the New York Yankees have shaped the city’s social, cultural, political and economic identity as well as identify the origins of the emotional connection fans have with the franchise.

Tufts will share with the students his vast experience of being a member of the Major League Baseball Players Association as well as Marvin Miller’s profound influence on how he revolutionized the American labor movement and paved the way for seismic changes in collective bargaining, arbitration and protecting the rights of professional athletes.

The continuing education preview event will allow the audience to listen to each professor’s inspirations for creating the courses, their teaching philosophies and what to expect in a regular classroom meeting. Both professors will also preview key topics of interest as well as engage with the audience in conversations that will sure to excite anyone who has a passion for the game of baseball.

Academic Chair and Clinical Associate Professor Wayne McDonnell will interview course instructors NYU Adjunct Professor Marty Appel, Baseball Author and Historian and NYU Adjunct Professor Bob Tufts, Former Major League Baseball Pitcher with over 20 years of experience on Wall Street.

Pinstripe Empire: A History of Baseball's Most Successful Franchise
(TCCE1-CE 9811)
1/7/2015 - 1/21/2015 (M/W 6:00pm - 9:00pm)
1/23/2015 - 1/23/2015 (F 5:00pm - 7:00pm)

From Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle to Munson, Jackson, Mattingly, and Jeter, no team has had such a great impact on American cultural history as the New York Yankees have. Established over a century ago, this Bronx team has had a love/hate relationship with its fans. Yet it has touched New York’s social, cultural, economic, and sports history with dazzling accomplishments, great stars, and big dollars. Examine the backstage factors that led to the successes, errors, and missteps along the way—and the emotional connection that fans have developed with the team. Emphasis is placed on the “brand.” The book Pinstripe Empire by Marty Appel, which is considered the definitive history of the team, forms the basis of the course.

Marvin Miller, 20th Century Trade Unionism and Development of the MLBPA
(TCCE1-CE 9118)
1/8/2015 - 1/22/2015 (T/R 6:00pm - 9:00pm)
1/23/2015 - 1/23/2015 (F 5:00pm - 7:00pm)

This interdisciplinary course covers law, labor, history, economics, management, American studies, and sports and examines how they relate to the origin and growth of the Major League Baseball Players Association. Study how Marvin Miller, the first executive director of the MLBPA (and an NYU graduate with a degree in economics), became a highly successful negotiator, manager, and union leader. Examine Miller’s upbringing, as well as germane social and cultural issues of the 20th century, the American labor movement, federal and state labor law, and relevant court decisions. Attention is paid to key moments in MLBPA history—early and failed attempts to unionize, Miller’s selection as executive director, collective bargaining, arbitration, court decisions, strikes and lockouts, free agency, drug testing and collusion—and the business and labor ramifications of these issues.
