Baseball: Past, Present, and Future

Weekly Baseball Discussion Group

“Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules, and reality of the game.”—Jacques Barzun

This class includes baseball history from the 1800’s to the present—from Connie Mack to the Bambino, the Say Hey Kid, the Yankee Clipper, the Brooklyn Dodgers, the New York Giants, and the Bronx Bombers. We discuss all teams, trends, contemporary issues, and statistical analysis. This is an interactive class.

Instructor: Steve King
