Baseball is often referred to as “America’s Pastime”, the quintessential sport of the United States. While football may now be more popular, baseball has remained an indelible part of our culture. The drama, joy, and heartbreak generations have experienced as they followed their beloved teams has transcended the pages of newspapers to become family folklore. The history of baseball is filled with heroics and failure, larger than life characters, and an endless series of tales shared by fans. It has inspired some of this country’s greatest works of literature, songs, and films.
