LECTURE Baseball: America's Game

Public Program, Member Events

John Thorn, Official Baseball Historian, Major League Baseball

In a run through the game's history, Thorn will show how baseball has been, most often for better but occasionally for worse, the American game. It has mirrored our society, sometimes propelling it with models for democracy, community, commerce, and common humanity, sometimes lagging behind with equally instructive models of futility and resistance to change. Baseball in no small measure defines us as Americans, connecting us with our countrymen across all barriers of generation, class, race, and creed.
