Major League Baseball’s regular season is over.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson says the 2021 campaign left him longing for baseball’s glory days when hitters didn’t always swing for the fences, pitches weren’t measured by their spin rate and analytics didn’t dominate strategy.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, the author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
