When Andrew Gustafson was in college, he would drive cross-country from Colorado to Connecticut, timing his route to coincide with attending summer league baseball games. As a geographer by training, his respect for "where things are" is baked right into his life and work as the Vice President of Turnstile Tours in New York City. His love of America's pastime is met equally by his respect for place. And so when he looks at the history of baseball and the placement of its Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York he can't help but question the motives behind locating it there.

In this engaging talk, we learn about how the myth of Baseball's origins became fact and why Brooklyn has the best case for hosting the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
