Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964484900, Hardcover)

From the critically acclaimed coauthor of Companies With A Conscience, All That Once Was Good: Inside America's National Pastime is an in-depth examination of the economics of baseball, as seen through the eyes of a lifelong fan during the 1994 players strike. If big-time, big-money professional sports entertainment is both a microcosm and mirror of our socio-cultural condition, what do current trends say about our society?

Rothman follows the birth and first years of operation of the fledgling Colorado Rockies franchise, exploring the issues involved in fielding a professional sports team, including the public financing of stadiums and the economic impact on the community, and muses upon the future of America's national pastime.
