Baseball has been Professional almost since its creation. I went with 1969, because the league was fully integrated, expanded west of the Mississippi and beginning of divisions and expanded playoffs. The Save was officially recognized in 1969, the DH and Free Agency were right around the corner. It would have been great to read about the live-ball era and integration starting together, but unfortunately Judge Landis did not allow it and never did. How much better would MLB have been with players like Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell and a younger Satchel Paige?
