If you have Amazon Prime/Video, you can watch or rewatch Ken Burns' Baseball to stave off the shakes. We're halfway through it now; I welcome additional baseball doc recs on Youtube or elsewhere to get us through the rest of the year...
And for people wondering, it's streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Highly recommended.
Sorry it's a little late but it's time for the weekly contest!

This week we will be talking about the national game, baseball! The October classic is coming to an end and there is actually an absurd amount of history surrounding the game this week, or what's left of it, will be about the history of baseball. From the Babe calling his shot, to the players union winning their supreme Court case, to Jackie Robinson and his civil rights milestone, to the women's league during WW2, to the invention of Astro turf the possibilities are limitless. Baseball history is full of eccentric characters, traditions, curses, inventions, great moments in the history of the US along with some of its lowest.

This is kind of a filler contest since we have all been busy so I chose to pick something slightly left of center to what we usually pick. Hopefully this, though it probably won't, will help diversify content away from just military history and spread things out a little.
Mod applications will be closed at midnight CST the day this is posted, we thank you for putting an application in and we will try to have the winners picked in a week or so.
Thanks for reading and don't forget to tag your posts!
