Presented by John Dreifort, History Professor at Wichita State University.

Explore baseball's influences outside the field of play as well as the effect of external factors on the game. Learn about key issues such as demographics, communities, social mobility, race and ethnicity, baseball as a business, player-management relations, amateurs, gender, and international play.

This event supports "Chase County: A League of Our Own," a special exhibit that explores the baseball tradition in Chase County. The project is part of "Hometown Teams," a statewide initiative exploring the way sports build and unite communities.
