Dead ball to live ball
Integration of black and foreign players
Lowering the pitching mound
Smaller ballparks
Weight training
Expansion of teams
Rising salaries

Those are just a few off the top of my head. Hope that helps. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Video feedback to aid players
Train travel to air travel
Batting helmets

Oops, this essay wasn't yours, Madison. :-D Well, anyway, that's a good 40 words or so.

Also - 100 years ago, many fans gambled openly in the stands, wagering on such minutia as the next pitch or the outcome of the next ball in play. Today, we have a version of that called "fantasy baseball." :-D
