Description by OLDIES.com:

This is an anthology of 19 papers that were presented at the Twelfth Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, held June 7-9, 2000 and co-sponsored by the State University of New York at Oneonta and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Capped by Roger Kahn's essay on the rise and fall of great baseball prose, this Symposium plumbed such topics as baseball in the classroom, the national pastime and American Christianity, corporate encroachment, and the difficult course pursued by a Negro League team owner who also happened to be white and female.

These essays, divided into sections titled "Baseball and Culture," "Baseball as History," "The Business of Baseball" and "Race, Gender and Ethnicity in the National Pastime," cut through the quick and easy judgments of the media and offer instead the longer, more informed view of scholars and researchers.
