Is Baseball Still Our National Pastime? Subscribe to Alerts


Baseball is America's traditional favorite sport, but its popularity is declining. Say it ain't so, Joe! Are fans finding football and basketball more attractive? If so, why? Why are there fewer Black players in MLB than a generation ago? Does that affect the popularity of the game? Finally, are MLB's new rules of play going to help -- or hurt -- the future of baseball?

Larry Zicklin (BBA, '57) discusses these questions with Marc Edelman, Professor of Law in the Zicklin School of Business Law Department. With an introduction by Interim Dean Paquita Davis-Friday and a Q&A session moderated by Associate Dean Gwen Webb.
