Baseball Greats Talk About 'The Game'

Baseball legends Bobby Brown, Jerry Coleman, and Eddie Robinson took part in a panel discussion on April 17, 2008, marking the opening of the exhibit, The Old Ballgame: Baseball in American Life, at SMU's DeGolyer Library.

Listen to the panel discussion, which has been broken into three parts because of length — Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. The panel discussion was moderated by Paul Rogers, a lifetime fan of the game, collector of baseball memorabilia and a professor in the Dedman School of Law since 1980, serving as dean from 1989 to 1997.

The panel discussion also celebrated SMU Press' publication of Anatomy of Baseball, a collection of essays by writers such as Roger Angell, Frank Deford, Katherine Powers and Stefan Fatsis, with a forward by Yogi Berra.
