dc.description.abstract"The National Pastime and History: Baseball and American Society's Connection During the Interwar Years" examines specific connections between Major League Baseball and society during the 1920s and 1930s. The economics of Baseball and America, the role of entertainment, and the segregation practiced by both are discussed in detail to demonstrate how Major League Baseball and society influenced each other. There is a brief look at both America and Baseball prior to and during World War I to provide an understanding of America and Major League Baseball at the dawn of the 1920s. Economics, the role of entertainment, and segregation are examined separately from both America's and Baseball's prospective. The direct influences they have on one another and the importance of their connection is then discussed at length.en_US
