          "Baseball Nut" Fredric Horowitz '75 to Decide A-Rod's Fate

          The power to enforce and uphold Major League Baseball’s 211-game suspension of Alex Rodriguez is in the hands of arbitrator Fredric Horowitz '75, a 60-something Dodgers fan.

          Initial reports put the time frame for the arbitrator process at around 45 days, however MLBPA chief Michael Weiner said Monday he didn’t expect a ruling until after the season, likely in November.

          “He’s a baseball nut,” said Doug Collins, another arbitrator based in Southern California, of Horowitz. “He’s a Dodgers fan, of course, but he can put that aside when it comes to a case. He’s the consummate professional.”

          Horowitz has been an arbitrator since 1988, presiding over such matters as salary arbitration in the National Hockey League to disputes in the airline industry, postal service and county civil service issues.
