Greinke and the basketball question
The great website MLBTradeRumors.com got its hands on a copy of the uniform player’s contract, and I thought Brewers fans may be particularly interested in the section about “other sports.” This topic came up earlier this month when right-hander Zack Greinke was injured playing pick-up basketball.
Other Sports5.(b) The Player and the Club recognize and agree that the Player’s participation in certain other sports may impair or destroy his skill and ability as a baseball player.
