Nats and Orioles Dispute Over TV Rights Fees Likely to be Reheard by Committee of Baseball Execs

by | Jul 18, 2018

The long-running dispute between the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles over television rights fees likely will be reheard by a committee of baseball executives this fall, reports the Associated Press, which added that a “New York State Supreme Court justice in 2015 threw out a 2012 arbitration decision that said the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network owes the Nationals $298 million for the team’s 2012-16 television rights. Last summer, the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division voted 3-2 to send the decision back to baseball’s Revenue Sharing Definitions Committee.

“The RSDC currently includes Milwaukee Brewers chairman Mark Attanasio, Seattle Mariners President Kevin Mather and Toronto Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro. The original decision was made by Pittsburgh Pirates President Frank Coonelly, Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg and New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon.

““At the end of the litigation that took place in the New York courts, the most important thing that was determined was that the original agreement of the parties must be upheld and the most important aspect of that is that the Revenue Sharing Definitions Committee is the body that the parties agreed would settle this dispute,” baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said.

“Baseball officials said the RSDC is likely to hear the dispute this fall.”
