Welcome to my website and blog! I am baseballrebecca, the Baseball Sociologist. First and foremost, I am a baseball fan, but I am also a sociologist. Thus, I am a Baseball Sociologist (you can find my definitely of that in the “What is Baseball Sociology?” tab on the homepage.)
My sociological studies included sport sociology, demography, and community sociology, as I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. I’ve taught both sport sociology and introductory sociology while working in the fields of civil rights, immigration, and statistics. Many years ago, I consulted on baseball history projects for the Babe Ruth Museum, Sports Legends at Camden Yards, and the Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission. I even wrote a book on minor league baseball! Now, I’m focusing on my blog and on sharing Baseball Sociology with the rest of the world.
Above all, however, I am an Orioles fan and a fan of the game. So please check out my website and feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
