The origin of modern baseball is usually considered the formal organization of the New York Knickerbocker Base Ball Club in 1842. The rules they played by evolved into the rules of the organized leagues surviving today. In 1845 they organized into a dues paying club in order to rent the Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey to play their games on a regular basis. Typically these were amateur teams in name, but almost always featured a few players who were covertly paid. The National Association of Base Ball Players was organized in 1858 in recognition of the profit potential of baseball. The first admission fee (50 cents) was charged that year for an All Star game between the Brooklyn and New York clubs. The association formalized playing rules and created an administrative structure. The original association had 22 teams, and was decidedly amateur in theory, if not practice, banning direct financial compensation for players. In reality of course, the ban was freely and wantonly ignored by teams paying players under the table, and players regularly jumping from one club to another for better financial remuneration.
Baseball and the media have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship since newspapers began regularly covering games in the 1860s. Games in progress were broadcast by telegraph to saloons as early as the 1890s. In 1897 the first sale of broadcast rights took place. Each team received $300 in free telegrams as part of a league-wide contract to transmit game play-by-play over the telegraph wire. In 1913 Western Union paid each team $17,000 per year over five years for the rights to broadcast the games. The movie industry purchased the rights to film and show the highlights of the 1910 World Series for $500. In 1911 the owners managed to increase that rights fee to $3500.
Curt Flood lost the legal battle, but the players ultimately won the war, and are no longer restrained by the reserve clause beyond the first two years of their major league contract. In a series of labor market victories beginning in the wake of the Flood decision in 1972 and continuing through the rest of the century, the players won the right to free agency (i.e. to bargain with any team for their services) after six years of service, escalating pension contributions, salary arbitration (after two to three seasons, depending on their service time), individual contract negotiations with agent representatives, hearing committees for disciplinary actions, reductions in maximum salary cuts, increases in travel money and improved travel conditions, the right to have disputes between players and owners settled by an independent arbitrator, and a limit to the number of times their contract could be assigned to a minor league team. Of course the biggest victory was free agency.
Miller organized the players and unified them as no one had done before. The first test of their resolve came in 1972, when the owners refused to bargain on pension and salary issues. The players responded by going out on the first league-wide strike in American professional sports history. The strike began during spring training, and carried on into the season. The owners finally conceded in early April after nearly 100 games were lost to the strike. The labor stoppage became the favorite weapon of the players, who would employ it again in 1981, 1985, and 1994. The latter strike cancelled the World Series for the first time since 1904, and carried on into the 1995 season. The owners preempted strikes in two other labor disputes, locking out the players in 1976 and 1989. After each work stoppage, the players won the concessions they demanded and fended off attempts by owners to reverse previous player gains, particularly in the areas of free agency and arbitration. From the first strike in 1972 through 1994, every time the labor agreement between the two sides expired, a work stoppage ensued. In August of 2002 that pattern was broken when the two sides agreed to a new labor contract for the first time without a work stoppage.
Matchday revenue is largely derived from gate receipts (including ticket and corporate hospitality sales). Broadcast revenue includes revenue from distributions from participation in domestic leagues, cups and UEFA club competitions. Commercial revenue includes sponsorship, merchandising and revenue from other commercial operations. For a more detailed analysis of the comparability of revenue generation between clubs, it would be necessary to obtain information not otherwise publicly available.
