One thing that really stood out to me in the second video was talking about the sport culture playing a huge role in showing what boys what masculinity should look like. The sport culture has become more aggressive, competitive, and mostly violent. I watch a lot of football and there is always some kind of fight going on or some guy taunting or disrespecting another guy. You can see hundreds of examples of seeing two guys trying to compete with each other trying to be the "top dog. " If you really think about look at football, It's a really violent sport.

One of the world’s most popular boys’ sports once, now a turf of world class punters. Baseball, the bat and ball game is an adrenaline pumping, nearly unpredictable (well if you are good at it, you could make very good predictions) sport played between two teams.

Over time, many in the black communities grew frustrated with the Jim Crow laws, because of their effectiveness in limiting an African American’s pursuit of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. With the new emphasis on equality a new athlete was ready to make American history, and it would come on the baseball field. Jackie Robinson, Hall of Fame MLB player, become the first African-American to every play on a Major League Baseball team.
Throughout his baseball career, Jackie Robinson combated and disarmed antagonists of all kinds with an unflappable demeanor and preternatural inner resolve. My favorite example of his delicate balance between outward poise and inner tenaciousness lies in his encounters with Phillies manager Ben Chapman, who resorted to using malicious racial epithets and instructing his pitchers to purposely throw harmful balls at Jackie Robinson. In a game against Chapman’s team in 1947, Robinson responded by scoring the sole run in the Dodgers’ 1-0 victory. For Robinson, vindication came in the form of tangible results. His resolve and success in the face of contempt, bigotry, and harassment serves as an eternal example for students like myself who seek to
