Well, the sports are played the exact same but the players and there surroundings are very different. In the 1920s the players went the same places everyone else did and so it was common to see someone like Babe Ruth eating peacefully at a restaurant. But now a days, if you saw someone like Albert Pujols at a restaurant then everyone would be going crazy and fighting just to get to him. The players in the 1920s weren't as big headed either.

I think it was because of the rising economy and finally being able to afford stadiums ect.
