Baseball, Why It Connects To Our American Story

"From the mill villages in the east to the mining camps of the west, baseball was a part of each community. A town that supported a team that played with competitive drive was a town that was regarded as an up-and-coming place—a place where future investment would be rewarded, a place where community character was seen as strong and hardworking. Through baseball a town could develop its own identity. In the competitive world of America in the 19th century, that was everything."
