Baseball Arbitration is where both sides submit a proposed outcome and the arbitrator decides which one is best. This forces the parties to put forward reasonable proposals for consideration and gives them greater control over the outcome.
Night Baseball Arbitration is where the parties don’t share their proposals with the arbitrator and instead the arbitrator makes a decision in the dark and whichever proposal is closest to the arbitrator’s decision is selected. The advantage of this twist on Baseball Arbitration is that the parties don’t have to “show their cards”.
