Download or read book Baseball is America written by Jr. Baltov and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2009-10 with total page 518 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: BASEBALL IS AMERICA explores America's Pastime through a trilogy of books: "A Child of Baseball" bats leadoff. Baseball, the bellybutton of society is a metaphor for America, acting both as its direction and reflection. Baseball is America, America is baseball. American history, embracing its religious past as a Christian nation, and baseball history, including its synthetic enhancement precedent, is traced through a tapestry of time in a life story format. Born into the Glory Days of New York baseball in 1955, baseball provides the author both identity and meaning. Narrative backdrops track both Reds and Yankee baseball, making historic stops over a 100+ year timeline. A 40+ year playing career is traced from 1962 Edison Little League through 2005 Roy Hobbs World Series in Edison's winter home (Fort Myers). Symbolism, baseball-speak, numerology, simile, nickname, euphemism and metaphor applications create a thought provoking and intriguing word sleuth effect exploring topics deep down in places we don't talk about at parties. Satire and cynical humor stragically integrated buffers acid discussion of controversial issues. Sixties youth ball is viewed and described through a Garden State lens. Seventies ball scenery drastically switches to the Sooner State while the 80's, 90's and new millenium take on a Lone Star State flavor with Space City the focal point. Pop culture, American history (including its Christian nation history) is tactically incorporated into the read. Baseball remains the only venue in America where religion can be pitched into public square casual conversation without being debased as a "nut-job" or being shown the door. The read displays no reservations of informally discussing topics from both Creator-based and man-based religious perspectives. The events surrounding the 1919 World Series, that the Reds accidentally won, are retold through the lens of a Cincinnati native who actually voted present, the author's grandpa.

Download or read book The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball 2d ed written by Jonathan Fraser Light and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-03-25 with total page 1112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than any other sport, baseball has developed its own niche in America’s culture and psyche. Some researchers spend years on detailed statistical analyses of minute parts of the game, while others wax poetic about its players and plays. Many trace the beginnings of the civil rights movement in part to the Major Leagues’ decision to integrate, and the words and phrases of the game (for example, pinch-hitter and out in left field) have become common in our everyday language. From AARON, HENRY onward, this book covers all of what might be called the cultural aspects of baseball (as opposed to the number-rich statistical information so widely available elsewhere). Biographical sketches of all Hall of Fame players, owners, executives and umpires, as well as many of the sportswriters and broadcasters who have won the Spink and Frick awards, join entries for teams, owners, commissioners and league presidents. Advertising, agents, drafts, illegal substances, minor leagues, oldest players, perfect games, retired uniform numbers, superstitions, tripleheaders, and youngest players are among the thousands of entries herein. Most entries open with a topical quote and conclude with a brief bibliography of sources for further research. The whole work is exhaustively indexed and includes 119 photographs.

Download or read book Baseball s New Frontier written by Fran Zimniuch and published by U of Nebraska Press. This book was released on 2013-06-01 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Major League Baseball first expanded in 1961 with the addition of the Los Angeles Angels and the Washington Senators, it started a trend that saw the number of franchises almost double, from sixteen to thirty, while baseball attendance grew by 44 percent. The story behind this staggering growth, told for the first time in Baseball’s New Frontier, is full of twists and unexpected turns, intrigue, and, in some instances, treachery. From the desertion of New York by the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants to the ever-present threat of antitrust legislation, from the backroom deals and the political posturing to the impact of the upstart Continental League, the book takes readers behind the scenes and into baseball’s decision-making process. Fran Zimniuch gives a lively team-by-team chronicle of how the franchises were awarded, how existing teams protected their players, and what the new teams’ winning (or losing) strategies were. With its account of great players, notable characters, and the changing fortunes of teams over the years, the book supplies a vital chapter in the history of Major League Baseball.
