Title        “Baseball As the National Pastime: A Fiction Whose Time Is Past” 

Professor Nathan’s lecture will argue that baseball’s endlessly self-pronounced, fictional claim to being the American “national pastime” has run its course. By this late date, it is exhausted but not dead, sacked by the National Football League and many other sports and pastimes in an increasingly fragmented, heterogeneous culture.
