This NetNewsLine, from EconEdLink, features a series of lessons that explore the economic concepts of comparative advantage and specialization using Babe Ruth's comparative advantage as a hitter/outfielder as an example. Students watch a slide show, take a quiz, make mock coaching decisions, play computer games with their classmates, and more, as they explore these concepts.
