I sat down with Doctor William Simons, a professor of history at the State University of New York at Oneonta who is the co-director of the Cooperstown Symposium in Cooperstown, New York. We spoke about the history of the game of baseball and some of the issues concerning race and ethnicity in the game today. Come take a listen!

Link to the newest version of The Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture edited by Dr. Simon and featuring his work.
