The Great American Game
Baseball’s rules and rituals are much as they were fifty years ago and anything to win still goes.
April 1959 | Volume 10, Issue 3
Actually, the last days are probably a long, long way off, for baseball even in its modern guise has not changed in its essentials. It is a rough, tough game, encased by rules that were made to be broken if the breaking can be accomplished smoothly enough, a game that never quite became entirely respectable, a game in which nobody wants to do anything but win. It will undoubtedly be around for a good time to come, and it will continue, in spite of its own press agents, to be in truth the great American game.
Or so, at least, believes one old-time fan.
