To understand how law pervades sports, you must view sports from a new perspective. When was the last time you attended a baseball game? Did you sit behind the fence behind home plate, or did you sit near first or third base behind your team's dugout to support your team and get into the game (without fencing blocking your view)? Did you ever consider that the better view of the game might lead to the loss of one of your eyes? If you worked for the home team, and someone lost their eye as a result of the game, what would you do, especially if you found out that your fence could have prevented the loss if your 4 foot fence were merely 2 feet higher? The situation occurs more frequently than you may expect:
Now that you have witnessed the consequences, will you second-guess your seat choice, or will you at least choose to watch each at bat rather than texting during play? If you worked for the home team, would you have known to call attention to the fence's height may expose the team to unnecessary liability? If you did not know, baseball field fence dimensions have been heavily litigated in the past, but different jurisdictions possess different regulations surrounding what is high and wide "enough" protection. Failing to meet these standards may open your organization up to serious liability.For this assignment, you must get out from behind your computers, and either witness a game you love (e.g., football, baseball, soccer) or experience a new game (e.g., polo, cricket, rugby). Whether you select little league, high school, college, or professional levels (I doubt Olympic would be realistic), you need to attend a real game/match/round/etc. to not only experience the joy of being a spectator, but to observe the sport through a new pair of lenses–legal glasses. Yes, I mean a real, competitive game. No, your television programming of a real game (recorded or live) does not qualify. For example, watching a surf competition with significant swells does not compare to watching a bunch of inexperienced people try to remain standing on a longboard in tiny ocean ripples.
View the attachment, Brief Real-World Game Assessment Example, which provides a quick example of what you could see at an athletic event while watching the game from your seat. While you attend the event, think about some of the legal ramifications that may influence those involved with the game directly (e.g., the athletes) and indirectly (e.g., spectators, like you). You will then discuss the following topic areas in a properly written (including correlating research when needed), APA-style paper, which must be a minimum of 7-pages (not including your title or references page) and incorporate at least 4 references in addition to your textbook (and references answering specific legal issues will count toward the 4 references, but not pure law, such as a Constitutional provision or individual statute/rule, which may also be expected):
Once completed, select the "Week 6 Assignment: Third Quarter Learning Activity" link above these instructions, and upload your Word document. Other documents forms, such as PDF, will not be accepted. This assignment accounts for ten (10) percent of your final grade.
