Description: Baseball's emergence as the leading American sport during the Progressive Era gave rise to myths that have endured: baseball as an indigenous, rural, and democratic pastime that built character, acculturated newcomers, and promoted traditional values and a sense of community. Baseball ideology continues to portray the sport as an institution that helps bind the nation against the forces of modernization.
