First of all, I think that this kind of debate is great–exactly what we need in a culture where quality of food and health is mostly ignored. My family are cattle ranchers in South Dakota, breeding meat cattle, not dairy, but the conditions are mostly the same. Not bad, but not ideal. As a nutritionist, I also know that milk and most dairy is not digestible by most people in the world, the exception being those with northern european ancestors. Millk does have naturally occuring hormones as well as naturally occurring opiates. Like anything else, there are more nutrients in raw, unpasteurized milk. If you are going to feed it to your children or drink it yourself, lets support farmers who are working for a better and cleaner world. Support local. Then organic and lets get farming back to the way it used to be–sustainable both for family farmers and for the earth.
Turn of the century baseball attendances were modest by later standards. The average for the 1,110 games in the 1901 season was 3,247.  However the first 20 years of the 20th century saw an unprecedented rise in the popularity of baseball. Large stadiums dedicated to the game were built for many of the larger clubs or existing grounds enlarged, including Shibe Park , home of the Philadelphia Athletics , Ebbets Field in Brooklyn , the Polo Grounds in Manhattan , Boston 's Fenway Park along with Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park in Chicago . Likewise from the Eastern League to the small developing leagues in the West, and the rising Negro Leagues professional baseball was being played all across the country. Average major league attendances reached a pre World War I peak of 5,836 in 1909, before falling back during the war. Where there weren't professional teams, there were semi-pro teams, traveling teams barnstorming , company clubs and amateur men's leagues. In the days before television, if you wanted to see a game, you had to go to the game.
