One memorable moment is when he did a video with the journalist site A Great Big Story as they also said “it's hard not to love this robed, big-sandaled ball of joy” One other groundbreaking things that he did was making a home run while he participated in the mascot derby (Gomez). He also is the one who will pump up the fans for a game, which we you think about it, it could very well help with getting contracts. Like their eight year contract for $144 million. And it's clear that he has very loyal fans as he has a ton of merchandise. Another reason why the Swinging Friar should be in the Mascot Hall of Fame is because he is focused on youth.

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 advantage is clearly with the colonists, French, and slaves. Not only are they fighting a war but they have a labor force, the slaves, doing all the agricultural work to put the basketball in the hoop and run up the score on England. The French gladly help the colonists team so that when the war is over they could trade with the colonists. The English, despite being the major European team of the time, were in control in the first few minutes of the quarter but abruptly began to lose the lead ultimately being forced to forfeit the game by the end of the quarter. The colonists winning the quarter threw England out of the picture and appointed them owner of the team.

I love basketball because I am terrible at it. Despite my 6’ 0” stature, it seems that my brother stole any natural ability I might have had. Every morsel of skill I have has been worked and paid for with each drop of sweat spilt during the fourth rebound drill, each painful bruise I collect after being caught with a flying elbow, and each ragged breath I take trying to outsprint my teammate. Basketball, for me, is a challenge.
Something funny that came out of that was when Darrall was deep in foul trouble, 4 fouls on only Chamberlain, he shouted at one of the referees “ Well, why don’t you just give the guy [one] hundred and we’ll all go home!” Sure enough he did just that. After Wilt had heard that he was going hard for the triple digits. Because of this very game the NBA had changed the lane (paint) from twelve feet wide to sixteen feet wide. With the third quarter coming to an end, Wilt racked twenty-eight, adding on to his 41 is 69 points from just the three quarters he’s been in.

I turned around and saw the ball hit him sliding into second.” -Satchel
Williams ' clutch hitting and perfect batting stroke made him the most feared hitter in a Cubs lineup that also included Banks and Santo. Williams ' 1,117 consecutive games played is the second-most in National League history. The six-time All-Star hit 426 home runs and finished second in MVP voting in 1972.

If people were to search the name Peter Edward Rose they will see that he’s an all-time leader of base-hits,singles, at-bats, and games played. Pete Rose is one of the greatest baseball players to ever set foot on the diamond. Sadly, he will never be in the Hall of Fame because of his foolish mistake in gambling with his love for the game. Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio as a child and being nicknamed ¨Charlie Hustle¨, must of made him feel the need to actually hustle people, even though the name had a completely different meaning.
