Abstract:     
This Article argues that the unilateral contraction of a MLB team such as the Minnesota Twins, as suggested by Commissioner Selig, may violate antitrust law. Part I of this Article discusses the history of MLB, the Minnesota Twins, antitrust law, and baseball's historic antitrust exemption. Part II discusses the issues involved in stating an antitrust claim against MLB and explains why Commissioner Selig's contraction plan was never a sure deal.
