The Golden Age of Baseball is generally referred to as those years between 1930 and 1965.
I was particularly interested in those last 15 years because that was when I ate, drank, and slept baseball. When I was old enough to read, the first thing I would do each morning was check the box scores to see how my boyhood baseball hero, Eddie Matthews, had done the day before and if the Milwaukee Braves, my favorite team because that’s who Eddie played for, happened to have lost, my day was ruined. But if they won and he had, perhaps, hit a home run, it was a joyous day.
While I love the “game” of baseball, I do not have the passion for it in its current state because the players today don’t hold a candle to the greats of those years.
