MLB Receives C+ in Annual Diversity Report

At, this article details an annual diversity report conducted throughout professional and collegiate sports by the University of Central Florida's Center For Diversity and Ethics. Specifically, this study assess the availability of employment opportunities for women and racial minorities. Since the inception of the study, the levels of diversity in Major League Baseball have generally improved. Richard Lapchick, the author of the study, praised commissioner Bud Selig for his efforts. However, Lapchick noted that MLB needs to work on its levels of diversity at the club level, where only a handful of women hold executive leadership positions.

What alternative, internal means of diversity regulation could be employed to achieve similar results as this study?

What employment law issues are relevant and/or applicable?
