Take me out to the ball game!
Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out to the crowd!
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don’t care if I ever come back!
The Making of a Pastime
Does this some conjure up images in your mind like it does mine? From four year old t-ball little league to a Major League season opener there is nothing more American than Baseball. This game was a part of America’s culture even before it had its name or formal rules. The baseball we know and love today was standardized by a man named Alexander Cartwright in 1845. The game became increasingly popular after the American Civil War and the leagues that form Major League baseball were started in 1876 and 1901. The game is one with easy to understand rules and play and does not favor a certain height or body build like football and basketball do. This makes baseball truly everyman’s game. From little children, to professional athletes, to retired firefighters, and high school scholarship hopefuls; baseball is America’s pastime.
