One of my favorite things about Baseball Sociology is looking at the relationship between baseball and the community. I stumbled across the Alaska Baseball League the other day and the video blow, which is on their website. It provides a fascinating glimpse into the relationship between the amateur (collegiate-level) teams in Alaska and the surrounding communities.
The video is a trailer for a documentary called Touching the Game: Alaska, the second in a documentary series about collegiate baseball. I haven’t seen the entire documentary yet, but I plan to soon!
