So I'm here reading the Congressional debates about the annexation of the Philippines. Man, Senator Hoar really ripped Senator Beveridge a new one. "Have you read the Declaration of Independence, sir? Allow me to remind you." And Carlos will be proud that his people's representative, Senator John Spooner, proceeded to call Beveridge's economic justifications of American rule "base and sordid."
But that's not why I'm here. I'm here to ask a question that I've asked before, but who's answer I've forgotten:
WTF happened to baseball in the Philippines? It's gone, disappeared, nada, se fué, totally driven out by ... basketball. How and why did that happen???
