Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The 1930s also saw an effort to apply the principles of business to baseball, especially in the area of advertising and promotional techniques. The first major breakthrough came in 1933 with the institution of the All-Star Game." - Richard Crepeau in Baseball: America's Diamond Mind (1980)
