Baseball first popped up in American culture in the mid-19th century but it was not until the mid-1880's that baseball achieved a level of prominence away from the field. Baseball has been the subject of books, vaudeville, Broadway, and of songs, movies and television. Baseball cards played a role in kids growing up and Yogi Berra became an American icon.
