Coming Home: Baseball’s America
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Baseball still holds a grip on America. It serves a quasi-religious function, as shown by its central story, a journey story of hope: “safe hit,” “touching base,” “coming home.” And, more pragmatically, baseball has been a surprisingly innovative engine of social change, as shown by its recurring episodes of inclusion, an emblem of many journey stories from the Irish to Ichiro. To highlight these themes, the presentation invites a conversation using metaphors of hope, homecoming and meaning-making through baseball to trace the history of the game – and our nation. Whimsical and informative, this program will prompt us to discuss how baseball is emblematic of American culture. RSVP: 206.297.0875.
