The German Baseball Lawyer

On the lighter side: A personal message from Graf & Partner’s managing partner Bernhard Schmeilzl.

In my unpaid (how could that happen to me being a lawyer) moonlighting side job as chairman of the board of the largest German baseball organisation, Regensburg Buchbinder Legionnaires, I was asked to give an interview for a short piece about the early years of the club which was aired last weekend on the 30th anniversary party.

Together with my interview partner Jochen Bender, another one of the “First 12” co-founders, we do make a great couple, the Waldorf & Statler of German baseball. Enjoy the 80’s and early 90’s TV footage of what German “baseball” looked like back then.

Now, here’s the video on Youtube. And no, the weird commentator at the beginning of the clip is not me.
