In this episode of the Stratfor Podcast, we explore the geopolitics of baseball with Professors Tolga Ozyurtcu and Thomas Hunt from the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education at The University of Texas at Austin, regular contributors to Stratfor Worldview’s series on the geopolitics of sports.

They’ll be joined by Stratfor Senior Analyst Matthew Bey as they discuss the global spread of the sport and the underlying stories from imperialist expansions to subtle resistance and the evolution of the game itself.
