Baseball In Crisis

by Frank P. Jozsa, Jr., Baseball In Crisis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Baseball In Crisis books, Recent polls have placed football ahead of baseball in popularity. Does this reflect football’s rise or baseball’s decline? Why has the national pastime—a title perhaps becoming inaccurate—fallen behind other major sports? Is the trend reversible? This book identifies the most substantial and persistent issues that have impaired Major League Baseball’s development. Chapters cover inflationary player, team and game costs; changes in baseball’s fan base; congestion in urban areas that host big league ballclubs; the negligent and irrational actions (some of it criminal) of players, owners, league officials, and the players’ union; and the maldistribution of power among the major league franchises. Six major reforms needed to boost the popularity of baseball are identified.

Baseball And Social Class

by Ronald E. Kates, Baseball And Social Class Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Baseball And Social Class books, This collection of fresh essays examines the intersection of baseball and social class, pointing to the conclusion that America’s game, infused from its origins with a democratic mythos and founded on high-minded principles of meritocracy, is nonetheless fraught with problematic class contradictions. Each essayist has explored how class standing has influenced some aspect of the game as experienced by those who play it, those who watch it, those who write about it, and those who market it. The topic of class is an amorphous one and in tying it to baseball the contributors have considered matters of race, education, locality, integration, assimilation, and cultural standing. These elements are crucial to understanding how baseball creates, preserves, reinforces and occasionally assails class divisions among those who watch, play, and own the game.

Baseball On The Brink

by William J. Ryczek, Baseball On The Brink Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Baseball On The Brink books, Major League Baseball was in crisis in 1968. The commissioner was inept, professional football was challenging the sport's popularity and the game on the field was boring, with pitchers dominating hitters in a succession of dull, low-scoring games. The major league expanded for the 1969 season but the muddled process by which new franchises were selected highlighted the ineffective management of the sport. This book describes how baseball reached its nadir in the late 1960s and how it survived and began its slow comeback. The lack of offense in the game is examined, taking in the great pitching performances of Denny McLain, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale and others. Colorful characters like Charley Finley and Ken Harrelson are covered, along with the effects that dramatic changes in American society and the war in Vietnam had on the game.
