Nothing makes me think industry in America like baseball
we have one of the last real grass and dirt fields in America here
I never knew what a privilege it was to grow up with a dirty white
uniform until I grew up.

I have to say ... baseball has never been the first thing to leap to mind when I think of industry. What's the connection?

Machka - there IS a correlation between the organization of sports and the industrial revolution - think transportation, leisure time, company sponsorship, worker entertainment, growth of cities due to mechanization...

Interesting. Maybe because I've never been involved in work-related sporting activities, I didn't make the immediate connection between industry and sport ... except for the industry of manufacturing sporting equipment.

Look at the signs in the outfield, they come from a time when Birmingham had very active steel mills, and the trains were a lot more active. That's part of the correlation. Birmingham is like Pittsburgh. There are few places in the country that have everything you need to make steel in one place. Like you can count them on one hand hand. So that caused lots of growth during the industrial era.

I got to watch michael jordan play baseball very porely and train here for bit. But it doesnt matter, he is michael jordan.

I live in a rural farming community, so this is it for an industrial revolution.
