TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME A History of Baseball in America

by | Read by Timothy B. Shutt

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2007

Ah! These 14 lectures on the history of baseball are a home run. Professor Timothy Shutt is a skilled lecturer who brings an informed historical perspective to his discussion of the game. He's just as well informed when he starts talking about the game in its better known professional lineage, and here his tone and delivery shift to those of a highly involved and lifetime fan. Shutt tells stories, including family stories and personal experiences, as he pays tribute to the great players ranging from Ruth and Gehrig and the 1927 Yankees to the neglected stars of the Negro leagues--and on to today. He takes stands on some of the issues that have been long debated, such as quality of the game in different eras, and shares insights on how everything from equipment to stadium design affect baseball.
