Pitch Perfect

Jonathan Tiemann’s love of the game of baseball comes through in this homage to the sport, which describes baseball’s “infinite variety and continuity with the past, both historic and mythic.” A lifetime of learning, playing, coaching and being a fan has embued Dr. T with a level of appreciation for the myriad transcendent aspects of the sport which he shares with readers to enable them to understand baseball beyond that which is visible on the field.


In his note on market competition Dr. Tiemann writes: “It’s an attempt to dig a little deeper than the stylized models we study in economics courses, and think a bit about how competition operates in the real economy.”
