My friend Ben Powell out at San Jose State has written an excellent article explaining why John McCain and his meddling pals in Washington should keep their hands off baseball. Writing for the Independent Institute Ben concludes that:

“Baseball is a business that responds to consumer demands. Senator McCain should have no more influence over what policies the organization adopts than any other fan. The senator is free to attend games or not. There should be no special role for government in determining what type of policy gets adopted. The government?s only role should be to commit to not using major league players? private test results for public prosecution.”
