Baseball and the social construction of gender

, : Baseball and the social construction of gender. Women, media and sport: challenging gender values: 238-256

This paper adopts a poststructural feminist analysis to illustrate how baseball, as an institution, constructs women. The paper examines the social construction of gender to highlight that baseball embodies a nostalgia for a pure and perfect experience of individual, masculine achievement. The sacredness of that ideal is protected against the mundane by exercising a taboo, against women.
