Baseball is in our minds and hearts this fall. To reflect on its history in light of the changing season, baseball can be said to have grown to form a unique connection with American culture. When the Depression came on Americans had difficulty meeting daily needs. Many could not even afford the 50 cents it cost to attend a game. But they nonetheless cherished the baseball stars, who took on a warm glow in the admiration of the public. The mythology of baseball grew in the American mind despite their difficulties - or maybe because of the hardships that afflicted them.
