Video: Prager U on baseball: As unique as America

We here at Liberty Unyielding are as Unyielding in our passion for American sports as we are for American liberty.  And who doesn’t love baseball?  As we congratulate Villanova and UNC for an amazing run in March Madness, and contemplate the coming climax of NBA basketball, our thoughts — and hearts — turn to the summer nights, stolen afternoons, hijinks, heroics, and nail-biting late-innings rallies of “America’s pastime.”

From Prager University:

Why do so many Americans love baseball? And what is it about baseball that is so uniquely…American? George Will, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post and baseball enthusiast, encourages us to take another look at our national pastime and view it not only as a sport, but as an illustration of American culture. From its celebration of individual achievement to its reliance on personal accountability and teamwork, many of the rules that govern baseball reflect the principles that make America great. So sit back, relax, and watch the video to find out not only why baseball is such a great game, but why it really is America’s pastime.
