It documents the early days of the Atlanta Crackers, the city’s first professional baseball team, to the recent founding of the GSU Football Program. Also highlighted are some pivotal legal controversies, such as the passage of Title IX, requiring schools to provide equal athletic opportunities for women, and the Major League Baseball strike between owners and players, culminating in the cancellation of the 1994 World Series.
