This book analyzes how sportswriters discuss issues of race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual identity, age, and class within professional baseball from 1998 to the present. Each chapter looks at the media representations of a specific controversy including the 1998 home-run chase, Alex Rodriguez's historic contract singing, Barry Bond's home-run chases, Mike Piazza's ""I am not gay"" press conference, Effa Manley's Hall of Fame induction, the celebration of Jackie Robinson Day, as well as the various incidents involving performance-enhancing drugs. The author puts it together and reveals what messages are being conveyed by the issues.
