Baseball on a Sunday?

This year, the Brooklyn Cyclones will play seven Sunday home games at Keyspan Park here in Coney Island.

According to an interesting article in Thursday's
Brooklyn Daily Eagle this would not have been possible in the early twentieth century. The article outlines how Sabbath protecting 'blue laws' forbid baseball on Sundays, and the various conflicts which this caused between baseball fans and Johnny Law.
