In the 1930s, Fehr’s grandfather owned a clothing store on what is now the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, but was forced by the Great Depression to close up shop and move back to Indiana.

Kasten knows Fehr from the latter’s long, previous tenure as head of the Major League Baseball players’ union. Shaikin does a great job of juxtaposing tales from the 1994-95 baseball strike with challenges currently on the NHL bargaining table. All in all, a great read.
