Close-up Shot of National Pass Time, 21 November 2014
Author: John T. Ryan ( from United States

ALTHOUGH THAT MANY will tell you that High School, College and NFL Football make up our national passion, Baseball is still our National Passtime. We believe this to be true and forever may it be so!

THIS WEEK IN BASEBALL has been a staple on Saturday afternoons for nearly four decades and shows no signs of slowing down. It is done by Major League Baseball Productions and The Phoenix Communications Group; which means that it is a sort of "house organ" of the celluloid and video media.

THE SHOW DOES a fine job of covering just what the title implies. In one half hour, its concise and thorough covering of the previous week's action gives any fan a picture of what's going in both Major Leagues, all Divisions and every Ball Park.

ADDITIONALLY, THE PROGRAM always features insightful items about the stars of the day and what teams are on fire and what Managers may be in danger of being replaced.

FOR ALL TIME we will remember the words of Mel Allen (1913-96); which were always present during his years hosting the show from 1977-95:

"How 'bout that!"
