 USIA - Portrait of the USA, Ch. 11
Baseball came of age in the 1920s, when Babe Ruth (1895-1948) led the New York Yankees to several World Series titles and became a national hero on the strength of his home runs (balls that cannot be played because they have been hit out of the field).
Until the 1970s, because of strict contracts, the owners of baseball teams also virtually owned the players; since then, the rules have changed so that players are free, within certain limits, to sell their services to any team.
In the 1996 Olympics, it was a measure of baseball's appeal outside the United States that the contest for the gold medal came down to Japan and Cuba (Cuba won).

 Archived Weblog Entry - 08/18/2004: "Cooperstown Confidential"
Though he recovered, doctors advised him to wear a protective batting helmet while playing first base or pitching (he was a two-position player in college), in order to protect against line drives and collisions with baserunners that might result in contact with the skull.
The helmets became a permanent feature for Pirate hitters, but within a few weeks players began disavowing their use in the field, partly because of their awkwardly heavy feel and partly because of the remote possibility of a batted or thrown ball striking a fielder in the head.
George “Boomer” Scott: Like Allen, Scott began wearing a helmet in the field because of unruly fan reaction, but his decision came in response to actions of the road fans, not the hometown faithful at Fenway Park.

 George Scott - Statistics - The Baseball Cube   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
A player with a centile of 15 means that 15% of the players have a higher salary.
A glut of players will be making the minimum and so it is unfair to represent some of these players within the range of 80 to 100 when they all earn the same.
The true formula of the centile is to count the number of players with a posted salary during the season and divide by 100.

 Rich's Weekend Baseball BEAT: September 2004 Archives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
To put it in a few words, the relationship between a player’s batting average and his total offensive value varies immensely from player to player; the two primary factors according to which it varies are the player’s isolated power and his walks.
The players are evaluated offensively based on runs created adjusted for the league average and park factor, expressed as a won-lost record and percentage by use of the Pythagorean method.
The players are then listed “according to the random chance that a.400 team would post their record in the same number of decisions” in order to adjust for the size of a player’s contribution in relationship to a replacement-level player.

Scott Boras: One reason I am unhappy with the draft is that some foreign players have rights that other foreign players (Canada) and US players do not have.
Scott Boras: Anytime we assume that an amateur player will be a statured major league player, that expectation is to the detriment of the player.
I have had players call me about bad contracts they had signed and I always advise that the sanctity of the contract is important for the survival of any system based on performance.

Soon he was back in the hospital, where he signed autographs, watched baseball on television, listened to his wife read him some of the hundreds of letters he got every day, and did his best to keep up a jovial front when visitors came to call.
Babe Ruth may have become the greatest player in Boston Red Sox history, if not for the greed and short-sightedness of one man. In 1917 the team was purchased by H. Harrison Frazee, a high-living, hard-drinking theatrical producer who loved baseball but loved Broadway more.
Replaced By That unfortunate task fell to George Selkirk, a one-time wrestler, who decided to try his hand at baseball and found himself in the major leagues with the Yankees after Earle Combs was hurt in 1934.

Her catches and throws are as strong as any of the other players -- and there's no girlish ponytail dangling from her baseball cap.
Instead, Holmes, with her short cropped hair and 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame is identifiable by her role in history: She's the first nonpitching female professional baseball player on a men's team.
Which is good, because despite the positive publicity the Mad Dogs could receive from having a female on the team, Scott said he would have cut her if she couldn't play.
