Andrew Guilford Mentioned That Joel Mallord And He Had Written An Article
About baseball’s Infield Fly Rule in 2015. It is written as a legal brief and was published in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. At that Joel was a clerk in Andy’s office. In him college life he had been the head person at that prestigious Law Review.
