Question details

Benson Industries contracted with the Wrigley family, the owner and operator of the Chicago Cubs to rent space on the scoreboard on top of the out field wall. The contract provided that Benson would have the right to request a sign to be place on the scoreboard and that Benson would have the right to request new signs that Wrigley would have to place on the scoreboard within 48 hours. The first sign Benson requested offered a reward of $5,000 to any ballplayer who hit a home run over the sign.

In one game, Henderson, one of the best hitter in the league, hit one home run over the sign. Benson requested Wrigley to change the sign so that it indicated Benson would pay $2,500 to any pitcher who pitched a no hit game.

Two weeks after the request to change the sign was made, the original sign had not been changed. The next day, Anderson pitched a no hit game and Smith hit a homerun over the sign.

Benson refuses to pay any of the three players. What are the rights of Benson, Henderson, Anderson, and Smith? Please discuss.
