Baseball: It’s an un-American sport.

My letter to the president of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Mr. Dale Petroskey,

I am dismayed in your decision to cancel the Bull Durham celebration. A movie made 15 years ago that brought a revitalization to independent and farm teams across this country should be celebrated, despite it's stars CURRENT political beliefs.

Baseball has always been "America's Pastime", and not a sport only for those who share our like beliefs. It's baseball's job to be above political difference, and allow Americans a break from every day life.

The person bringing this to my attention? None other than Hugh Conrad, a former co-worker in Johnstown PA. You can read his story on the issue on Buzzflash.
