I had the pleasure of writing a detailed feature on the history of Olympics baseball for Paste Magazine, a hub of cultural reporting. The piece charts the often troublesome relationship between America’s national pastime and the Olympic movement; takes a look at the missed opportunities for London and Rio; and explores the campaign to see baseball involved at the 2020 Games in Tokyo.
Josh Chetwynd of Baseball on Five fame was kind enough to help me out once again, and his unrivaled insight on global baseball really adds to the piece.
