6:48 am
that would prevent this kind of thing. but baseball occupies a very special legal exception that no other sport in the nation has. it all goes back to a 1922 lawsuit for something called the federal league. it was forced to shut down because the american league and the national league were working in cahoots to poach the teams from the federal league. one team that was left over was the baltimore terrapins and they brought a lawsuit saying what the aland nl, are doing is a monopoly, and this is a violation of federal law. remember this is 1922, and the justices said while people move from state to state to attend baseball games and to play in baseball games, the games themselves happen entirely within a particular state. so, without any interstate commerce elements, major league baseball isn't actually subject to the federal law. they said again move from state
6:49 am
to state, that is fine. the games happen within this entire state about that is why they are not subject to federal law. again this goes back to 1922. baseball has enjoyed that exception to monopoly laws ever since. >> why hasn't somebody challenged it. >> reporter: they have. they run into two problems. by the time other sports were challenging this kind of antitrust law, it was the 1950s. these leagues were a little more sophisticated. in addition in both 1953 and in 1972, when the u.s. supreme court revisited this baseball exception, both times they realized you know what? back in 1922 we gave this loophole, and congress hasn't changed it and we are going to assume that is a good thing and
6:50 am
that is what congress wants us to do. in addition one of the most fascinating cases in supreme court history is flood versus. they take up the exemption again. they say you got it. we know baseball impacts commerce. we are not going to kit ourselves. so because we know it just impacts interstate commerce, you know what? we love baseball. justice black man -- blackmon actually listed 85 of his favorite players in the case. >> you are kidding. >> reporter: flood versus kuhn. read this love letter to the industry written by justice
6:51 am
blackmon. >> we are running out of time. we could go on forever about this. >> reporter: really. >> it is great. it is interesting. and i'm sure you have more online anyway. remember you can find more on melissa's segments on our website. melissa, thank you. time now for a look at what is coming up later on cbs this morning. >> charlie rose joins us from new york. good morning. >> good morning michelle and brian. our own gayle king has a front row seat to history. she attended the final farewell to nelson mandela. this morning she will join us from south africa. plus they are the first images from the surface of the moon in nearly four decades. how china is getting in the space race. and today is one of the busiest shipping days of the year. we'll have a behind the scenes look at how two shipping giants make sure all those packages get there in time. the news is back in the
