Class Experience

Students will learn about the origins of baseball and its evolution into the modern game that we see today. Students will be able to identify notable players and key events from baseball history. Students will be able to explain how Major League Baseball is currently structured and how a champion is determined.
Students will be tasked with developing their own “dream team” of historic players, which will entail compiling a list of candidates from each session discussion and reducing that list into a final starting lineup.

During the final session of the course, students will receive feedback from each other and from the instructor on the historic “dream team” they assembled.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
If time permits, we will be watching a 5-6 minute YouTube video about the San Francisco earthquake that disrupted the 1989 World Series. This video includes some disturbing images of the destruction caused by the earthquake. All of the images are of the type and nature that could be included on a nightly news broadcast.
