In the aftermath of the Civil War, two all-American things — flags and baseball — became tied together as a means of reuniting the nation. From “The Star-Spangled Banner” to pennants marking a winning season, flags and the sport have been entwined for 150 years. “Star-Spangled Baseball” shares stories about how the old game and Old Glory came together to link patriotism and hardball. From a player who was buried in his team's flag…to the design of early pennants…from the National Anthem to the National Pastime…from a teenage girl who hoisted the U.S. flag on opening day in the 19th century to the catcher who slugged an historic homer with a 9/11 patch on his shoulder — all those stories and more are told in “Star-Spangled Baseball.”
