Did you know that Disney himself was the voice of Mickey Mouse? A few years later Walter and Harriman had went out to make a deal with a local Kansas City theater to show their cartoons, which they had called Laugh-O-Grams. The cartoons instantly became popular. The Laugh-O-Gram had hired a large amount of employees, including Ub Iwerks. Together they had made a series of seven minute fairy tales that had live action and animation.

Records have been broken, games have been played, and players have done things that have changed history. Baseball went from being the “American Pastime”, to becoming a global icon. Baseball has allowed people from around the world to connect and make it seem that the world is smaller than it is. There are two quotes that to me help sum up why in my opinion the game of baseball is the greatest game ever created. The first is by Cincinnati Reds legend Johnny Bench: “That's the remarkable thing about baseball.
This quarter I read the realistic fiction book, The Batboy by Mike Lupica. This book is a story about a 14 year old boy named Brian Dudley. Son of a former pitcher and an avid baseball fan, Brian gets his dream summer job: the bat boy for his favorite team the Detroit Tigers. When it seems like his summer cannot get any better, his all-time favorite player Hank Bishop is signed to the team. At the beginning, Hank is cold and yells at Brian a lot, but in the end they become friends.
Nothing beats going to a baseball game and seeing all the raging fans cheer for their team. The Red Sox are my favorite team. Going to a game at the historic Fenway Park against the Yankees and watching the rivalry between the two teams is so fun to watch. Fenway Park is the only stadium that still uses the manual scoreboard, and is also one of the oldest stadiums. When you're sitting in the stadiums and you see the “green monster” wall and all the fans in their red shirts and memorabilia it is so cool, because you are seeing the Red Sox traditional game at their home field.
So, with that Theodore Roosevelt, the Vice President at the time was sworn in and took the role as President of the United States.

Then shortly after that Teddy gave the first annual message to
The Tacoma Narrows Bridge opened to the public on 1 July 1940, construction having been completed in just one year and seven months. It had a span of 1810 metres, the third longest in the world at the time, and promised to bring great economic growth to the Kitsap Peninsula in the US state of Washington. However, after its spectacular collapse on 7 November 1940, just four months after its completion, the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge is now remembered as one of the most famous structural failures in history. The Tacoma Narrows forms part of the Puget Sound strait, which separates the Kitsap Peninsula from the Washington mainland. A toll bridge across the Narrows to replace the existing ferry system was proposed in order to make use of the economic potential that the mainly undeveloped peninsula had to offer.
These past 4 years of being a Pirate fan has been amazing. I grew up watching some of the worst baseball ever. I feel like I deserve to watch good, quality baseball. Pittsburgh has been great to me whether watching sports or just going to enjoy the city, it is awesome. I hope to one day live there.
Baseball is what many call “America’s Pastime”. It is the game that never fails to bring me from the highest highs to the lowest lows. The second that you think you are the best, the game will humble you. When you are at a loss for confidence, you will do something amazing that will turn your game around. Nothing beats the smell of the spring air, the dirty pants, the laughs with teammates and the glory of winning.

One of the greatest reasons to live in the Quad Cities is because it is home to the best minor league ballpark in the world, Modern Woodman.

The joke stuck, and Ruth quickly earned the nickname “Babe” Ruth. Ruth was only with the club for a short time before he was called up into the majors in Boston. The left handed pitcher proved immediately to be a valuable member of the team. Over the next five years Babe led the Red Sox to three championships, including the 1916 title which saw him pitch a record still today of 13
