Before the pair of renaissances that yielded the Phillies their only two World Series titles and salvaged some pride for a franchise paralyzed by humiliation, Bucks County-born author James Michener was asked how he endured the ups and downs of being a baseball fan. "Ups?" Michener replied. "What ups? I'm from Philadelphia. " The Philadelphia Michener knew as a boy was a robust industrial hub, a city frequently referred to as "The Nation's Workshop. " But by the time the prolific writer died in 1997, most of the factories that had cranked out everything from locomotives to hats were shuttered.

Matt Klentak, in his first winter at the head of a baseball operations department, wanted to learn how companies manage information. The 35-year-old Phillies general manager surveyed people in baseball, other sports, and some with zero connections to the game. How, he asked, do you implement analytics into decisions? Those talks led him to Andy Galdi, a 30-year-old Google employee who was hired Thursday as the Phillies' first-ever director of baseball research and development. "He's the perfect guy to help grow us forward in this area," Klentak said.

Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada may or may not like baseball, but he holds a soft spot for millennials. His sinister, slightly funny, and intelligent God Bless Baseball , which played Jan. 22-23 at Fringe Arts, teems with insights in its allegorical look at a game that's as American as apple pie and global economic domination. Okada's play starts innocently enough. On Tadasu Takamine's set, two twenty-something women (Aoi Nozu and Sung Hee Wi) stand inside a baseball diamond. One Japanese, one Korean, their words appear in English on a pair of short screens that flank a giant, imposing white disc that resembles the inside of an umbrella.

By William C. Kashatus In 1997, when Major League Baseball retired Jackie Robinson's No. 42 to honor his breaking the color barrier 50 years earlier, I heard Monte Irvin give a talk at Lincoln University, the historically black college where he was a three-sport athlete in the late 1930s. Irvin captured the imagination of the audience with spellbinding tales from his days as a star shortstop for the Newark Eagles of the Negro Leagues and later as an outfielder for the New York Giants.

We've been over this a thousand times. You bet on baseball. Looks like you bet on your team too. You're living in Vegas, you own a bar, you still gamble on anything that moves. Including baseball.

Last in an occasional series Eight-year-old Zahmiere Grimes and his best friend, Mehki Hopkins, sat in the auditorium of North Camden's Pyne Poynt Middle School building, taking in the rows of children around them. They were quiet until their baseball coach passed by. Then they called out, "Hi, Coach!" and giggled wildly. Months after the end of the North Camden Little League's season, the boys still talk about baseball all the time, said Zahmiere's mother, Charlene Norman. "All summer, all they wanted to do was go to practice," she said.

Dan Barbara has enjoyed baseball success at a variety of levels, but his brief flirtation with Major League baseball draws the most interest. Barbara will be among seven inductees Saturday to the South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame during the 56th annual Hot Stovers Baseball Club of South Jersey anniversary dinner. It is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Masso's Crystal Manor in Glassboro. "It's a great surprise that I am receiving this honor," Barbara said earlier this week at Tri-State Elite Baseball and Softball Academy, the training facility that he owns in Washington Township.

Jack Overton Rice, 86, a psychiatrist who retired in Philadelphia, where he saw a son manage the Taney Dragons and a grandson play for the team, died Wednesday, Oct. 14, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania of complications from a stroke. Dr. Rice had many passions, but it was his love of baseball that he passed on to his children, son Alexander said. "That was the point of him moving" to Philadelphia, said Alexander Rice, who managed the Dragons during their Little League World Series run last year, "to be with the family and watch us play baseball.

Did you catch the raucous St. Louis Cardinals locker-room celebration after they clinched their third consecutive division title in the final days of the regular season? Yeah, I know - I hate 'em, too. The Cardinals, as comedian/Cubs fan Bill Murray put it, are "Satan's messengers on earth. " But you have to give them credit, for, in a little-noticed gesture, the team took a big step toward ending a despicable tradition that has plagued baseball for more than a half-century. Instead of popping the cork on bottles of Champagne, they celebrated their victory with beer.

Three-plus years of travel and books couldn't sever a lifetime's bonds, so last June, lured by the Humpty Dumpty challenge of reassembling the Phillies, Andy MacPhail came back to the family business. Yet as eager as the reeling franchise's new president is to tackle this daunting task, there is first, he knows, a nightmare to confront. Early on Feb. 18, 1969, MacPhail's oldest brother, Lee III, the Reading Phillies' new general manager, was returning home after speaking at a Wyomissing banquet.

When George Carlin debuted his brilliant "football vs. baseball" routine in the fall of 1975, its subtext was clear and timely. Football - complex, authoritarian, aggressive, militaristic - represented the establishment. Baseball - relaxed, pastoral, and with grass at its base - was a perfect stand-in for the counterculture. That contrast was best portrayed in what was perhaps its most familiar passage: "In football, the object is for the quarterback, also known as the field general, to be on target with his aerial assault, riddling the defense by hitting his receivers with deadly accuracy in spite of the blitz, even if he has to use shotgun.
