MLB baseball, Major League Baseball history

Sports Channel / Bullz-Eye Home

America's pastime has traveled a bumpy road over the past 25 years. We lost the World Series in 1994, and it took a while for the fans to come back. The home run chase between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa electrified fans and brought them back to the ballpark, but now even that joyous time and many others have been tainted by the steroids scandal. It's still a wonderful game, and Major League Baseball now has beautiful new parks in many of its cities, and millions of people play fantasy baseball.

Baseball long ago was surpassed by football as America's most popular sport, but it remains rooted in our culture.
