Double-Play: Using Minor League Baseball to Apply Themes and Standards in Human Geography Courses
Zeitler, Ezra
Journal of Geography, v112 n1 p29-40 2013
Growing student interest in sports provides geography teachers with a special opportunity to make connections between it and fundamental concepts in the discipline. This article examines the structure, arrangement, relationships, and distinctions among minor league baseball franchise locations, stadia, and team names, and presents examples of their applicability to teaching the five themes of geography and addressing many of the national geography standards in introductory human geography courses. (Contains 12 figures and 1 note.)
