In this upbeat and entertaining lecture, The Cornell Club faithful will be treated to a discussion of how baseball has changed since our youth – whenever that youth may have been.  Kelley Franco Throop will discuss how the game has evolved, and cover topics such as playoff expansion, the designated hitter, the new rules of the game, and the impact of analytics on how teams are built and how the game is played.  Both casual and serious baseball fans will enjoy this engaging presentation.

Kelley Franco Throop is a former guest lecturer at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and former baseball contributor on CNN's Financial Network.  She is also a practicing attorney in New Canaan, Connecticut at her firm, Franco and Associates.  Follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @threeinningfan to catch her "Three Inning Minute" videos, which feature snippets about the legal, transactional, and nostalgic side of baseball in one minute each.
