Event Details
 
Event Name: George Gmelch, PhD: The Changing Culture of Baseball
Category: Academic/College Events
Sub Category: College of Liberal Arts
Description: Baseball fans talk about the timelessness of their sport and its respect for tradition. While the rules of the game remain constant, not so for its culture, as anthropologist George Gmelch discovered in returning to baseball fifty years after he first signed a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers. In this talk he describes the transformation of our national pastime, of the men who play, and the game’s internationalization.
