Professor William B. Gould IV was mentioned in the following article by Mark Weiss of the Palo Alto Patch on the baseball game of Stanford vs. Vanderbilt.

I ran into William B. Gould IV, the famous labor law professor and baseball nut, at the dry cleaners today. I go to Cho's Norge, on Cali Ave, in the building that used to hold the fabled Keystone Palo Alto and several other lesser nightclubs.

I didn't recognize Gould at first, although I went to his reading at Stanford Book Store a few months back. I bought and had him sign his recent book on the history of baseball as told in labor terms (Curt Flood and all that).


Gould said he is throwing out the first pitch tomorrow Friday, February 17, at Stanford Sunken Diamond, Cardinal versus Vanderbilt, at 5 o'clock. I bluffed my way through mentioning that I had noticed we have an impressive list of pre-season All America -- I think Bill said that five of our nine starters rate that highly and that Stanford is #2 in the nation.
