 LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Business of Baseball," a timely half-hour special to be heard on MARKETPLACE, Friday, Oct. 16, takes an in-depth look at the economic problems of baseball. MARKETPLACE, American Public Radio's daily magazine show, examines the impact of world events on business and economics.
 "Baseball is in turmoil with the firing of the commissioner, failing gate revenues, soaring salaries and many related and complex problems," says MARKETPLACE producer John Barth. "The sporting business is part of the overall economics of the United States and that is why during this World Series season, we are devoting a special show to these problems."
 The program spotlights the Boston Red Sox. Writer/Producer David Freudberg talks with senior Red Sox executives and several baseball superstars, including Jose Canseco, Dave Winfield and Carney Lansford, as well as baseball economists, commentators and broadcasting executives.
 "The Business of Baseball" explores the background of arbitration, the firing of the commissioner and the future of broadcasting revenues on the local and national levels.
 Jim Russell is the executive producer for MARKETPLACE which is produced by USC Radio at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
 The exclusive corporate underwriter for MARKETPLACE is GE, with major funding also from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Public Radio Stations Nationwide and the American Public Radio Program Fund, whose contributors include the United States Japan Foundation of New York and The Japan Foundation's Center for Global Partnership.
