Your instructor worked several summers in the front office with the Milwaukee Braves, and then as a financial executive with the Milwaukee Brewers for 22 years. Presented by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and several historians, this course will bring a unique perspective to guide you through decades of experimentation, change, controversy and triumph in what has become America’s favorite pastime. You will learn the origins of everything from catcher’s masks to batting averages with the help of remarkable artifacts, images and rare footage. This course begins in the decades before the Civil War and takes you up to the pivotal year 1920, where a sense of uniformity in the game was finally achieved and laid the groundwork for today’s modern game. Knowing the history will add levels of enjoyment, respect and appreciation to any game you now watch.

No classes Nov. 10 and 24.
