Like in saloons, people from all different economic classes come together over their shared identity. Business deals also take place at baseball stadiums. In order to illustrate this point, I will be examining: -the construction of the stadium -how does the construction reflect its intended purpose -narrow corridors that lead into a wide open stadium -main focal point is the field (and therefore the game played on the field) -food and drink stands - encourage people to relax, eat, and have fun (like at the saloon) -seats all face home plate, seats are close to one another and in long rows -again, focal point is baseball game, but intimacy encourages conversations among people with a shared interest -souvenir stands encourage people to "show" their identity -ticket prices -what types of people attend baseball games? -as the price increases, so does the view of the game, those that pay less will sit farthest away in the stadium -what does this say about the economic structure of society? -those with more money have more opportunities, those with less are afforded few luxuries -however like the saloon, everyone is welcome to attend Early Sources: -Making of Urban America Edited by Raymond Mohl -there is a chapter in this book about the history of saloons in America
