Town Teams: Bigger than Baseball, is a documentary short which shines the spotlight on the game in the late 1800s and early 1900s. ‘Town Teams’ examines why amateur and semi-pro baseball exploded in popularity in Kansas and across the U.S. The film explains how baseball became the ‘social media’ of its time. It connected people through athletic competition. But it grew to become much ‘Bigger than Baseball’ as towns across the state competed for highways, county seats, and economic development.
