Reflecting on the History of Baseball with Tyler Kepner

KCBS Radio In Depth
Monday, June 17th
Baseball is in a time of transition: The games are getting longer and longer, and the crowds are getting smaller, and now many are asking if America’s favorite pastime might be in need of an update.

On this edition of In Depth we search for some clues as to what may lie ahead for the sport by looking to its past.

For that KCBS Sports Anchor Steve Bitker and KCBS Morning Anchor Stan Bunger spoke with one of baseball’s keenest observers, Tyler Kepner, the national baseball writer for the New York Times.

They discuss Kepner’s new book, "K: A History of Baseball in Ten Pitches," which examines the history of baseball through the lens of some of its most famous, and infamous, pitches.
