Baseball As Unique As America
Baseball truly is America’s pastime, more so than football, basketball and hockey. But is it really as unique as the USA? Pulitzer Prize winning-columnist George Will thinks so. “Baseball is what America aspires to be–a real meritocracy,” Will says. “Baseball also is a good game for democracy, because it teaches democratic lessons. It is a game of a half-loaf. In baseball, as in democracy, no one gets everything he wants.” Listen to more of George Will in this edition of Prager University.
