A good read to start the 2011 baseball season. This essay
puts the game into perspective, that is, enduring changes in
life and society, baseball stays the same.

Every generation views the old game as better when they
were young, that is the primary consistency! Thorn
gives an overall view of the game and then devotes a few
pages to each of the decades, '50s, 60s, 70s, 80-90s and stops
in 1995 as that is the original publication date.

Do things change? from a poem in the book by HC Dodge

'Oh give us
There's a breezy authority to this book that really drives home the information contained within. A fascinating overview of the formation of the leagues and how Americans came to love baseball.
