FROM SANDLOT TO SKYDOME:
THE HISTORY OF BASEBALL IN TORONTO

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! COURSE BEGINS NOVEMBER 25!

Baseball was being played in Toronto more than a century before the Blue Jays were born. In this 4-week online course, we'll explore the game's evolution in our city — from the days when it was a working class sport played by "undesirables" to Joe Carter jumping for joy in front of 50,000 screaming fans. Along the way, we'll meet everyone from con artists and kidnappers to eccentric millionaires and feminist icons — the people who've made Toronto baseball what it is… and helped transform our city in the process.


Format: The course will include 4 weekly lectures on Zoom with a chance to interact and ask questions, as well as a list of recommended readings & links. Each class will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Every lecture will also be available to stream online later for anyone who can't make that week's class.

Dates: November 25 to December 16, 2021.

Time: Class will begin at 8pm every Thursday night.

Cost: $75 + tax.

If more than one person in your household would like to take the course, feel free to sit in on the lectures together — you only need to pay one fee per screen.
