“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday 's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That 's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that 's the way baseball is”(Bob Feller). People in America besides the food, the jobs, and the freedom love and enjoy Americas sports. While a great many of people see football as “America 's game”, baseball has been “America 's game” for over a generation.
People think sports are just sports, but in reality to athletes it’s an escape from life, it’s our second family, and most important we feel like we belong there. Sports make you feel like your apart of something bigger than a team. Softball has been my second family and I have made so many amazing friendships that might last for the rest of life and even if they don’t, I will never forget all my friends or the memories that I have playing ball with
They owned it and they didn 't hesitate to acknowledge the issue. Red Sox president and CEO Sam Kennedy brought up a good point in response to shock that this act happened in Fenway Park, “...the 105-year-old ballpark, a civic treasure, isn 't immune to what 's happening throughout the country.” Racist acts, crimes, and remarks like what happened in the years of and leading up to WWII and at Fenway Park, cannot and will not be ignored. Situations like these, big or small, will forever be etched into our history, as Americans and as a world-wide society. Some people like to put racism off as a thing of the past and not acknowledge it, but it still exists, it is all around us in our everyday lives no matter who we are or where we came from.
What would you do if your family made you eat part of a nasty , mucousy , squishy octopus ? Or make you ride down a super frightening roller coaster at the age of Seven ? Or possible the worst one yet , force you to go into the most eerie, disturbing, haunted house attraction that you know of ? Although there are many things i do not like . I love playing sports , hanging out with friends , and spending time with family .
The 1920’s through 1930’s were the golden age of baseball. Many teams started to rise to fame and many players began to become popular. This was after the Black Sox Scandal which caused baseball to head downhill and lose support from fans. Babe Ruth was one of the players who transformed baseball from just a sport into a national pastime. He rewrote the record books and became known to a popularity that no one has ever seen.
To make things a bit more complicated my high school coach had been my coach my entire softball career. He knew how I thought, how i played, and really molded me into the player I am today. I soon graduated from my little league summer softball to the competitive nature of highschool ball. As a freshman I knew I was going to be overlooked. Too much of my surprise I was placed on varsity for my pitching abilities.
Baseball was a gateway of escape for immigrants. While they were spending 60 hours a week working they could always count on baseball, even if they didn 't have a real ball and bat. The immigrants saw their own people succeeding and working hard, and it gave them hope that one day they could also succeed in something they loved, they saved up the money they made to go and watch the Pirates play and become a part of the growth American Baseball. Most commonly the immigrants were the most valuable players and a beacon for the rest of the team. In order for America to agree to take in immigrants, they are expected to follow our rules.
“To be great is to be misunderstood” This part of the story gets to me the most because of the way he said it. I think of this like when I was in Fertile baseball. We had many great players on our team, but when we had to move up to high school baseball it was like none of the coaches gave a thought about you. Mr. Jerome could’ve said you were great, but he didn’t mean it; if weren’t from Forest City you didn’t start no matter how good you were. I have many words I would like to say to him, like having a great team if he would’ve just tried you out once.
I still see some of those rascals, but remember why I hated that sport. Now the game of baseball it 's a spectacular art, I was a clumsy 6 years old who has been hit where it counts and be embarrassed in front of 2 teams and a couple stands full of spectators at 7. Now granted my story isn 't the same as many of your children, your kids asked you as at a young age to play this sport and you all have let them, but now we are deciding for
My most favorite memory as a Indian Springs Cheerleader was our first home game in the new stadium It was very intense and it was a very long day, it was my very first time cheering at a game in like years so I was scared and nervous, I don’t watch football much so I didn’t know what was happening on the field but later on in the game I got the hang of it. This was great because I got to cheer with great team that night and hope that I get to do it again . Another favorite moment was the Pep Rally, it was my first time performing in the rally and I never thought I would be able to do something so cool.
In Lincoln, Nebraska, there are two completely different facilities that the Nebraska Cornhuskers play in. There is Memorial Stadium, which has a lot of history and success, and there is the two-year-old Pinnacle Bank Arena, where they are building a program. Both Husker facilities have a great game atmosphere and they are both located near downtown Lincoln. So what do you prefer? A facility that has a tradition of excellence, or a facility that is brand new, capable of hosting concerts and indoor events, and has successful seasons that are bound to come?

Lou Gehrig's "Farewell Address to Baseball" was a speech delivered at Yankee Stadium. He had been recently diagnosed with ALS, later to be renamed as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The disease attacked the central function of the nervous system to the point of leaving it dysfunctional. During this time, the United States was gradually beginning to recover from the Great Depression, but just as things seemed to be getting better, war was quickly becoming unavoidable in Europe. The American people were constantly dealing with these two and many more issues in their daily lives.
In the book “ Johnny Tremain” written by Esther Forbes, the theme pride really stands out in the beginning of the book. In this book, it repeatedly shows pride as a bad thing. Pride is one of the few things in the world that isn’t just good or evil. Pride is only evil if you let it become more important than everything else. This is a quote by C.Lewis “ pride is a spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love, contentment, or even common sense,’”
In today’s society, there are people in this world who do not want to be a lone wolf, rather they find comfort in being in a pack, those people are called bandwagons. A lot of people now in days are not loyal to one team anymore or don’t pick a team unless they are winning. Fans aren’t cheering on for their own teams anymore if they are losing and want to cheer for the better team. People get discouraged when they are cheering for their team because they are getting made fun of for not cheering on a good team.
