Baseball became more of a lifestyle for people in the 1920s. In part because radios were broadcasting games, new stadiums were being built, and newspapers started including sports sections. People poured into stadiums, such as the Polo Grounds, to watch there teams compete. In St. Louis, after the Cardinals won the 1926 World Series fans mobbed the streets in celebation. Players such as Babe Ruth became national icons during tis era in baseball.
