“Baseball arbitration” refers to the process used in Major League Baseball in which if an eligible player’s representative and the club ownership cannot reach a compensation agreement through negotiation, each party enters a final submission and during a formal hearing each side — player and management — presents its case and then the designated panel of arbitrators chooses one of the salary bids with no other result being allowed.
