Active Minds Presents America’s Pastime: Baseball!
A brief history and selected stories from the game of baseball. Join Active Minds as we trace the history of baseball from its disputed origins to the present day.  We will look at the way that “America's Game” is often reflective of the nation itself.  Baseball has often been plagued by scandal, from the 1919 Chicago Black Sox to the "Steroid Era” and the recent revelation of cheating by the Houston Astros.  At the same time, Baseball has also seen transcendent figures such as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and the man who broke down Baseball’s color line, the heroic Jackie Robinson. Bring your own favorite baseball story to share with the group.
