It is the time of year again for our national Pastime’s Fall Classic. There was a time and place where a ballgame had far more at stake than a World Series ring and money. The ancient Mesoamerican ballgame was no ordinary sport. This illustrated lecture will take you “out to the ballgame” played by the Olmecs, the Maya, and the Aztecs. We will witness its themes of good and evil, of life and death. A game where the penalty for losing could be quite severe – sacrificing one’s life!
