Babe’s popularity was at its height even as his ability was decreasing (Match 53). Babe got sick with the flu; he collapsed in a railroad station, therefore his team went to the game without him. A couple of days later, he fainted on the train, and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, and was weakened by an operation (Macht 40). Babe was thirty-nine, and still played (Macht 53), that means he played for twenty years, however, he only hit twenty-two home runs within 125 games (Macht 53). He eventually signed with the Boston Braves, but he wanted to quit because he was tired.

I told myself that I was going to play the homecoming game because we were playing the worst team in the state and figured I couldn’t hurt myself any worse, failure number two. That game I ended up tearing my ACL on the 8th play of the game, and just like Tony Gwynn’s world, three strikes you’re out. Indeed I was, I was out for six months with five months of therapy. I was in a failure hole, and was looking to stay in that hole, but I soon realized that I can either sit and pout or come back better than I was the first time. My decision was to come back better, that was one step forward.
In Tom’s second year, Patriots’ starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe got injured. Tom immediately took over the team and took them to a Super Bowl and received the MVP for the game. All was going good for Brady until the 2008 season when he suffered a severe knee injury that benched him for the whole season. Many worried that this injury would be the end for Tom Brady but he was back for the next season. In 2011, Tom Brady made the headlines by making it to another Super Bowl.
Well if you are like me, you watched the Rangers win a back and fourth game that was the epitome of September baseball, were overcome by joy, and then passed out because you were just flat out tired. For a game that ended on Wednesday morning, a Rangers win would have been the only acceptable outcome. For me the game meant waking up and walking to class quite sluggishly, and for many of you I 'm sure it meant a long day ahead at work, staring at the clock waiting for it to be 5:00pm. You 'll probably even sit there thinking, I 'm definitely not going to do that again tonight. But I 'm here to tell you that you are, and you are for a while, because this team is fun to watch and it 's meaningful September baseball baby!
6 ⅔ of innings in, he gets the sign, sets up, fires the pitch, strike three. But immediately after he fired the pitch his shoulder and mid arm flares with pain, and he knows it’s bad. He still has pain the day after, currently visiting the doctor 's office for an m.r.i., he has strained his brachillas and has also hurt some muscles in his shoulder. He’s out for at least 3 months, that means he could be able to return for the state tournament, if his team makes it. He accepted the challenge, and trying to face the adversity to come with it, because baseball meant the world to him, even though he was a very good student with a 4.0 g.p.a.
Bo Jackson suffered a serious injury right to his right hip in Cincinnati on January 13th in 1991.

Clayton Kershaw has been the best pitcher in the league up until he got injured with a lower back injury. He has a 1.79 ERA which leads the league, a 16.1 strikeout to walk ratio, and 0.73 WHIP. Before the injury he was the presumptive NL Cy Young Award winner and in the running for NL MVP, but this injury might derail one of his best years yet. Kershaw pitched a simulated game last Saturday and this gave a lot of people hope, until Dave Roberts announced that Kershaw didn’t feel good after the game. There was no original timetable when Kershaw first got injured and now that he has hit a setback, that timetable must be even longer than originally believed.
From being a below average hitter to an extraordinary hitter over years in the majors is nothing new to baseball but extraordinary doesn’t even come close to explaining how good of a batter Mark McGwire became after 10 years in the majors. Just to give a little look at how good of a hitter he had become, his first year he had three home runs with a .189 batting average and by his tenth year he had 52 home runs with .312 batting average. That doesn’t even fully explain the extent of McGwire 's hitting. In 1998 he broke the record for most homeruns in a single season, previously held by Roger Maris with 61, with 70. He profoundly made his mark in Mlb history.
The team won the pennant that year but lost the series and Berra was subsequently fired. He was a coach for the New York Mets for the next seven years, and, in 1972, became that team’s manager. The year 1972 also saw Berra’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Yankees honoring him by permanently retiring his jersey number (8). In 1975, Berra returned to the Yankees, first as a coach, then again as manager from 1983 until he was once more fired in 1985. He was hired as a bench coach by the Houston Astros in 1986 and was there until his retirement in 1992, having spent almost a lifetime devoted to the game.
It was the last inning in our all-star game, and we were losing 10 to 8. Our team had 2 outs and we couldn’t get the third. Our pitcher was doing bad, throwing all balls, while all of us in the field were tired, ready to fall asleep at any moment. There goes another walk. They score again.
