Bill Lee - Red Sock LHP.

Bill 'Spaceman' Lee

A former Boston Red Sox pitcher, an academic and two journalists last night discussed "why baseball, in the public mind, has sunk so deeply. Twenty-three people gathered at the Institute of Politics to hear Bill "Spaceman" Lee, a left-handed pitcher who was a star on the Red Sox' World Series team; David King, assistant professor of public policy at the Kennedy School of Government; Don Skwar, columnist at the Boston Globe; and Larry Tye, a Boston Globe reporter, reflect on why fewer Americans are identifying baseball as their favorite sport. Citing an ABC News poll stating that only 28 percent of Americans identify baseball as their favorite sport, Tye said baseball has not been so unpopular since In football, you only have to see it once a week and then you can drink your 12 Budweisers and go back to work on Monday--baseball you have to digest. King attributed part of the sport's decline to the decline of family values in the United States. Lee, who wore a red cap emblazoned with the letters "CCCP" during the recent Ken Burns' "Baseball" series on PBS, said materialism and commercials have corrupted the game, naming Adam Smith, the father of market economics, as the culprit.

  1. If you want to see the pure essence of the game of baseball captured on film then you must see Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey.

  2. Baseball becomes one-sided, and what started out as an attempt at populist diversity in telling a story of a people descends into Red Sox bathos and opera-loving elitism.

  3. My favorite Bill Lee story is that while he wore #37, he'd actually asked for # because if he ever ended up upside-down, it would spell.
