"Much has been written about Ruth, but as someone who teaches sports marketing, I really appreciate the angle taken by Barthel, who reveals how the most marketable athlete of his day parlayed great celebrity into business opportunities. This book has much to offer baseball fans and marketing scholars alike."—John Fortunato, author of Sports Sponsorship: Principles and Practices and Commissioner: The Legacy of Pete Rozelle. From his first year in the majors, George Herman "Babe" Ruth knew he could profit from celebrity. Babe Ruth Cigars in 1915 marked his first attempt to cash in. Traded to the Yankees in 1920, he soon signed with Christy Walsh, baseball's first publicity agent. Walsh realized that stories of great deeds in sports were a commodity, and in 1921 sold Ruth's ghostwritten byline to a newspaper syndicate for $15,000 ($187,000 today). Ruth hit home runs while Walsh's writers made him a hero, crafting his public image as a lovable scalawag. Were the stories true? It didn't matter--they sold. Many survive but have never been scrutinized until now. Drawing on primary sources, this book examines the stories, separating exaggerated facts from clear falsehoods. This book traces Ruth's ascendance as the first great media-created superstar and celebrity product endorser.

The 2011–2012 volume in the Cooperstown Symposium series is a collection of new scholarly essays that use baseball to examine topics whose import extends beyond the ballpark. The essays represent 16 of the leading presentations from the two most recent proceedings of the annual Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, held on June 1–4, 2011, and May 30–June 1, 2012. The essays are divided into six parts. “Baseball History, Myth, and the American Past” considers the distinction between reality and remembrance. “Decade of Transition: The 1960s in Baseball and America” explores a critical passage in the evolution of the nation and the game. “Baseball Economics: Owners, Profits, and the Public” provides perspectives on sports as business. “Out of the Bleachers: Women Umpiring and Playing” links the game to those who participate and care about it despite the expectations of atavistic gender roles. “Casting the Game: Stage and Screen” examines theatrical and cinematic treatments of baseball. Part 6, “Game of Numbers: Statistical Baseball,” examines the sport and its artifacts quantitatively.
