Never on Sunday

More than 100 years ago, Americans gave their Sundays over to God and family. And then came baseball.

By Bruce J. Schulman


Excerpt: Sunday. For many Americans the word is synonymous with Game Day. And not just NFL fans: Sunday produces Tiger at his most ferocious. It’s the biggest day for NASCAR races. Even baseball has sanctified day seven, with ESPN’s Sunday night game of the week. It wasn’t always so. . . .

About the writer: Bruce J. Schulman teaches history and American studies at Boston University. His essay on bestselling food lit books appeared in Proof No. 3.
