The decade following World War I was known as the "Roaring Twenties," and sports were no exception, from Babe Ruth's fateful trade to the New York Yankees to a transcontinental footrace from Los Angeles to New York. Following this decade of letting loose was the more somber 1930s, a time of worldwide economic depression. Jesse Owens's four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and War Admiral's Triple Crown win served as beacons of light for a downtrodden nation. Learn about these events, and many more, in 1920–1939, Second Edition.

Highlights include:

  • Boston Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sells Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in 1920
  • Four powerful players on University of Notre Dame's football team are dubbed "the Four Horsemen" by sportswriter Grantland Rice in 1924
  • The Harlem Globetrotters launch a basketball legacy in 1927
  • The Transcontinental Race, a foot race from Los Angeles to New York, is run over 84 days in 1928
  • One of football's most celebrated coaches, Knute Rockne of University of Notre Dame, dies in a plane crash in 1931
  • Babe Didrikson, one of the greatest female athletes of all time, wins two gold medals and a silver medal at the 1932 Olympics
  • African-American athlete Jesse Owens wins four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, striking a blow against Nazi racism
  • War Admiral wins the Triple Crown in 1937.
