Thinking of baseball as America's pastime,I believe that baseball was the first sport of the masses in the US.
We have to remember the past in relation to sports. The old folks like me remember the first baseball games televised on television .
This was the particular part of "The good old days" that I think of when I think of the new form of entertainment when I was young.
Saturday baseball on Channel 6 in and around the Lansing Michigan area was one of the best parts of the weekend.We only had one tv channel at that time so we
enjoyed everything we could watch...especially baseball!
