When It Was A Game

I was up late watching the old baseball documentary, When It Was A Game. I have seen it advertised for years, but never got around to watching it.
I must say it was very good. It captured baseball at a time before money really controlled the game.
Last night I had thoughts that before big money contracts, before network television, before Marvin Miller and the Major League Players Association, before Curt Flood challenged the Reserve Clause, before Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally and free agency, before expansion, before Scott Boras, baseball was just a GAME!
Despite the greed, I still love the game.
