“Last Hurrah of the Republic!” – Walt Whitman

Baseball is America’s game, from the United States to Mexico to the Caribbean basin to Venezuela. It is also Japan’s and South Korea’s and Taiwan’s too. Walt Whitman said so: “Baseball is the hurrah game of the republic! That’s beautiful: the hurrah game! well—it’s our game: that’s the chief fact in connection with it: America’s game: has the snap, go, fling, of the American atmosphere—belongs as much to our institutions, fits into them as significantly, as our constitutions, laws: is just as important in the sum total of our historic life.”
