Court Decides in Favor of Base- t
ball Czar in Famous Ben- 1
nett Case i
Chicago, April 21— (/P)—Kcncsaw -
M. Landts’ power over organized
baseball was upheld Tuesday by Fed
eral Judge Walter Lindley, who dis
missed the suit for injunction filed
by the Milwaukee club of the Amer
ican Association in the celebrated
Bennett case.
The suit for injunction, which was
sought to restrain the commissioner
of baseball from interfering further
with the baseball contracts of Ben
nett, an outfielder, was dismissed.
Judge Lindley said, for want of
equity. ,
The decision, rendered several
months after the court arguments.)
was regarded as a great triumph for
Commissioner Landis and his claim
to absolute dictatorship over the
ranks of organized baseball. The suit
was the first test of his powers.
Fred Bennett, an outfielder, was
sold by Tulsa of the Western League
to the St. Louis club of the American
League in 1928 only to be returned to
Tulsa first on option and then on
outright release- during the same
year. In the sahae year, at the end
of the Western League season, Ben
nett was sold by Tulsa to Milwaukee.
He didn’t report to the Milwaukee
club so his contract was sold by Mil
waukee to the Wichita Falls club of
the Texas League with which team
he played, throughout^the 1929 season.
In September, 1929, Bennett was sold
to. St. Louis. He went to the St.
' Louis training camp but on April 7,
1930, St. Louis released him on op
tion again to Milwaukee. At this
• juncture. Commissioner Landis
1 stepped in and the dispute began.
Commissioner Landis ruled that
i Bennett had been kept in control of
! the St. Lous Browns “farm system” •
for the limit of two years under the;
' major-minor league player agreement
’ and that the St. Louis club either
■ would have to waive him to the other
! major leagues or sell him outright to
a club not connected with the St.
Louis “farm system.” St. Louis re
fused, sending him to Milwaukee, a
club in which it holds an interest, and
5 Commissioner Landis declared Ben
nett a free agent to play baseba il with
L any club he pleased. The suit for in
, junction followed.
