Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Society (EASL) at St. John’s
School of Law cordially invites you to attend our Annual
Distinguished Alumni Reception featuring the presentation
of the Joseph J. Beard Distinguished Alumni Award to:
Eugene D. Orza ‘73
For more than a quarter of a century, Gene Orza has been
instrumental in establishing the Major League Baseball Players
Association as one of the most powerful unions in the country.
Serving first as the Association's Associate General Counsel and
then later its Chief Operating Officer, and through five collective
bargaining negotiations, Mr. Orza has been an ardent and steadfast
proponent of player rights. As the press release announcing his
retirement this past March noted, virtually everything in baseball,
from the conduct of the amateur draft to the size of the strike
zone, bears the imprint and influence of Gene Orza.
A buffet dinner will be served.
