Uncovering Clemente, Baseballís Last Hero

Here are some previous Think Tank programs that may be of interest.

Bill James, Beyond Baseball  (aired 7/28/2005)
In the last few years, the success of teams like the LA Dodgers, the Oakland Aís, and of course the miraculous Boston Red Sox has been credited to a new scientific way of looking at baseball. Itís called Sabermetrics, and it is changing the way we look at baseball and professional sports. How does it work? And are there wider implications beyond the world of sports?

Is Racial Profiling Real?  (aired 7/19/2001)
From California to Cincinnati to New Jersey, police departments are being confronted with the incendiary charge of racial profiling. But just what is racial profiling? How widespread is it? And does the crusade to abolish it threaten to undermine law enforcement? Think Tank panelist Heather Mac Donald challenges conventional wisdom. In a recent article in the City Journal titled, "The Myth of Racial Profiling," she writes: "The anti-íracial profilingí juggernaut must be stopped before it obliterates the crime-fighting gains of the last decade, especially in inner cities." Is racial profiling real?

Women in Sports  (aired 7/15/1999)
America's victory in the Women's World Cup has renewed debate on Title IX, the 1972 law banning sexual discrimination in federally financed education programs. How much of an impact has Title IX had on athletics programs and women's sports?

Professional Sports  (aired 5/15/1999)
American cities are spending billions of dollars to lure or keep their professional sports teams, and many people are beginning to ask, is it worth it?

Integration on Americaís Campuses  (aired 10/1/1998)
Two competing trends are occurring in America. Colleges are becoming more diverse. And yet, black colleges are gaining in popularity, affirmative action is in retreat in states like California, and self-segregation within campus life seems more prevalent.
