Literature of Baseball: Strike Four

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic This study group will explore how the modern game of baseball has become the sport that we know and love. As baseball resumes in the spring we will also follow our favorite teams as they advance from spring training into the regular season. If you thought you knew baseball, you may be surprised to learn how the game has evolved. In Strike Four: The Evolution of Baseball by Richard Hershberger (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019) the author examines the national pastime’s development, the reasoning behind new rules and innovations, and the consequences of these changes - both intended and unintended - which often led to additional rounds of modifications. We will evaluate and discuss topics including the dropped third strike, foul territory, nine innings, tagging up, balls and strikes, tie games, equipment and the infield fly rule. Join us for a deeper understanding of America's favorite pastime.
