Evans’ also said players must be capable to adjusting to the pitches in the batter’s box, ups and downs, and this relates to the adjustment of a diverse world, people must be accountable for what they do and how they help others.

Ronald Torreyes 24-year-old Venezuelan, who currently just concluded his first full season with Yankees. Standing at a height of only 5’10, Torreyes is the shortest player on the Yankees Roster. His stature does not although, hinder his playing ability as he has proven to be an impressive asset for the Yankees bench this season. To further understand Torreyes, we will need to further look into the man that I consider to be a great utility player for the Yanks. Torreyes discovered baseball during his childhood in Venezuela, he would later sign with the Cincinnati Reds as an international free agent when he at the young age of 17.

For him to play, Jack Dunn had to become his legal guardian. Being the youngest player on the team, he stuck by Jack’s side most of the time which is where his nickname originated from. At the beginning of spring training one of the players said “Look at Dunnie and his new babe.” The name stuck with him and from that point forward he was called Babe instead of George (Ruth’s).
During Babe’s early life his parents worked long hours which resulted in him skipping school or causing trouble in his neighborhood. His parents realized that he was not in a strict environment, which resulted in him getting sent to St. Mary’s Industrial School for Boys, a school run by Catholic monks. Babe developed a love and passion for baseball at the school, one of the monks (Brother Matthias) helped him refine his baseball skills, working on being an excellent pitcher, catcher, and batter. Babe would mostly practice by himself to focus on individual skills and individual mental capabilities. As Babe grew and got extensively better at the game of baseball; he was offered a contract to play for the Baltimore Orioles.

Ruth was not only the greatest player in the history of the game of baseball, but he was also a spirted, likeable, outsized character who arrived always at the right moment. Babe Ruth was destined for fame starting from his days as a young ball player, then next by getting attention as a result of his remarkable pitching, and finally by stunning fans as a home run hitter. At age eight Ruth was sent to St. Mary’s, an industrial school for boys (Vecsey 56). There he was introduced to base-ball, a game he had excelled at by the time he was 15. He showed exceptional skill both as a strong hitter and pitcher, but it was his pitching that caught the attention of the owner to the Minor League Baltimore Orioles, Jack Dunn.
