There is an old proverb, it goes “ Treat your work as though you will reap a harvest from your labors”. I had never heard of said proverb before my first day of baseball, and even if I had, I would not be able to relate in the slightest. Growing up, I learned that my natural abilities in athletics and school made it so things just came to me, I thought I was a natural born winner. This gave me the mindset that hard work was for people who actually needed it, I (obviously) not being one of those people. This mindset would be crushed on my first day of baseball practice, where I was put in my place and forced to re-evaluate what it truly means to be a successful person.
I like to play aggressively, attacking the ball and playing my best. When you play the best, you help your team out, and you can do things you never thought you could do. Home runs were one thing I did not think I could do with many other things I thought I could not do. Since I’ve created many memories and have done things I thought I could not do, baseball is my favorite
He wasn’t only responsible for possibly the greatest baseball era this world has ever seen, he is responsible for paving a way for new African Americans to join the league. Barry Bonds, a former African American player, said he wouldn’t have had even the slightest bit of courage if it weren’t for Jackie Robinson’s amazing legacy. Jackie even showed his sense of courage to people off the field. Becoming a great roll model to kids around the world,”Little kids loved me so I gave them something to watch.” (Jackie Robinson Interviewed.) Through all of Jackie’s problems with not only other teams, even on his own team.
Baseball is in my blood. My great uncles and my dad played baseball through all of their young years so I am expected to be an athlete like them. Baseball is more than that to me, I actually love it. From fielding to hitting and losing or winning. It is how I express myself, because I can’t sing or draw.
Even though that they've tried their best to cheer for them, the Los Angeles Dodgers were beaten by the visitors, 10-2. Overall, it was a great game for both of these teams. What's really important for the celebrity couple and their daughter is that they're enjoying the game, win or lose. After the game, both of the teams are showing some sportsmanship to them. It's indeed a clean game for both Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In this book, Jackie realizes how important it was to become inducted, “He knew that being selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame in a player’s first year of eligibility was a rare honor”. To be selected for the baseball hall of fame is rare and to be “inducted his first year” was even more rare. There was a player that got inducted with him, Bob Feller. Bob Feller “(The) Cleveland Indians pitcher … (who) made it into the Hall of Fame the first year (also)” had more votes but still, Jackie got in. These examples prove that Jackie did have a great career and going into the Hall of Fame proved that he was an amazing player.
There were many racial remarks against Jackie, either physically, or he couldn't do anything about it. When he was physically hurt many things happened.At bats for him was a thousand times scarier because pitcher would often aim right for his head. Playing against the Yankees just wasn't the same, rude comments for the dugouts that were just flat out nasty. The rude comments not always came from other player but it came from the crowds. Nothing made the situation better not even his teammates .

My decision is clear but I just don’t know how to tell my dad; sometimes we are concerned about other people’s feelings, that we don’t do what we truly love. I knew that baseball wasn’t what I loved to do, running cross country was but I was contemplating on how to tell my father. It was his love for baseball that got me in it but it wasn’t what I
I am lucky enough to be apart of such a great fraternity and support the ALS foundation to stop this terrible disease. Lou Gehrig came from nothing and turned his life around into something great. He put in the work and became good at whatever he did. He changed the game of baseball with his talents and set records that still stand to this day. Lou overcame childhood challenges, became one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and shed a light on a terrible disease are all examples on how Lou Gehrig is a true sports
