Baseball, America’s greatest pastime, has been documented in thousands of movies; however The Sandlot and The Bad News Bears capture the most memorable aspects and cruel realities of little league and backyard baseball before the sport became a hollywood enterprise. The Sandlot shows baseball in its purest form, a group of neighborhood boys playing a never ending game and playing for the love of the game. The Bad News Bears represents the pains of little league baseball, from learning what a baseball is, to finding a select few athletes who take over the team to win at all costs. Both movies are classics in the baseball genre of film and are alike, yet so different that they are entertaining for all. The Sandlot directed by David Evans was released in 1993 and has become a baseball classic (rogerebert.com).

In Beijing, where the games were being played, the pollution was so bad and the smell in the air was as bad as rotten tomatoes from all the smoke. I was really frightened to be there because I was concerned about my health. In the U.S., we don’t

I ran into a room with just two big black bags on the ground.

In asylums the patients were not seen as people, they were seen as objects. If patients misbehaved, they could get a form of “treatment” called thump therapy. Thump therapy wasn’t actual therapy, it was just abuse termed a different name (Mental: A History of the Madhouse). Beatings were common and persistent, especially with long stay patients. In an example, one patient who continually was pestering the nurses, got a bucket thrown at him.
The pitcher threw it, and the batter swung and missed; we were all nervous. The next pitch came and he swung and missed again.
