For This College Sport, the Playing Field Is a Boardroom, by KEVIN ROOSE

At the first Wall Street Training Valuation Case Competition, the Tulane/Shanghai team won first place.  They pitched a 3.2 billion aquisition of RPC, an energy services company by Chesapeake Energy Corporation.  

This article has a clever title comparing a corporate boardroom to a playing field with teams.  There is a baseball term is the second sentence in this post, “pitch.”   A pitcher pitches a ball, but this team pitched an idea for a takeover.
