I am, first and foremost, a baseball fan. I am also a sociologist. Therefore, I am The Baseball Sociologist, also known as Baseball Rebecca. In my journey to find myself, I studied community sociology, sport sociology, and demography at The Catholic University of America. I taught introductory sociology and sport sociology while working in the fields of civil rights, immigration, and statistics. 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!
But after all that, I realized I primarily am an Orioles fan, and a fan of the game.
I am baseballrebecca.
PS In case you were wondering, the photo in the header was taken at Camden Yards in May 2011. Go O’s!!
