Whether you’re a baseball nut or a casual fan, Bill Harrison is going to tell the story about the pride, passion, and history of “America’s Sport” in Arizona. In the 1930s, when professional baseball teams were being lured away from Arizona, Governor Rose Mofford successfully enticed them to stay in Cactus League. And, of course, the Arizona Diamondbacks are always in the hunt for the World Series win.
Baseball is not just a sport, its history is rooted in soldiers at remote forts and incarcerated Americans of Japanese descent who played to survive their circumstances.
It’s that time of year when the crowds start coming to enjoy Spring Training games, so . . .
Let’s Play Ball!
