Talkin' baseball--and, er, steroids--with Telander

Tomorrow at the lyrically named Freedom Museum, at the base of the Tribune Tower, the Sun-Times's Rick Telander and former US Attorney Anton Valukas will talk about the legal storm created by the Barry Bonds-busting book Game of Shadows.

(In short, the San Francisco Chronicle reporters who wrote it, Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada, were sentenced to 18 months in prison for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury about how they obtained Barry Bonds's testimony to a grand jury. Journalists find this problematic, arguing that it was an overreach of the federal government--the reporters got more time than anyone yet sentenced so far in the BALCO investigation. Only the confession of the attorney responsible for the leak kept them out.)
