dc.description.abstractWisconsin has a rich history rooted in immigrants, industry, and sporting culture, all of which played a role in the history of baseball. Baseball's history throughout the state has changed because of major historic events but also with the guided assistance of three memorable men. The role Raymond Gillette, Henry Aaron, and Allen Selig played in the history of Wisconsin's story in the sport of baseball gives it a unique past, and rare evolution of the game unmatched by other states. Following the story of these men and the shift in baseball's importance during World War II, Wisconsin's story of baseball has changed from being a part of industrial worker culture, to the sport as a major industry itself. Each of these men has provided a different aspect of the sport and their importance is equal, yet unmatched.en
