Penn State Harrisburg symposium looked at how baseball reflects American history

Baseball is an American tradition, with origins that date back to before the American Civil War. As the Washington Nationals celebrate a historic World Series win, a group of speakers at a recent Penn State Harrisburg symposium, titled "Athletes in Action: A Symposium About Diversity in Early American Baseball and Nittany Lion Lettermen's Contributes to the Great War," discussed how the history of baseball is deeply entwined in the history of America.
