  • Baseball Field
    1,016 words
    While being recruited by various colleges for baseball, I had to decide on a program with a great athletic, academic, and fan supported background. I chose the University of Florida because of their great athletic success in the past ten years and all of their well-equipped facilities. I never took a recruiting visit to the University of Florida, so when I first arrived to Gainesville and saw the baseball field for the first time I was amazed. The field looked as if it were a professional stadiu...

  • Professional Baseball
    706 words
    Coach Nestled along the Massachusetts shore, lined with oaks that may have seen the arrival of the first Americans, there is a quaint baseball park, bordered only in the outfield by a thatched wooden fence and some pines. The Pawtucket Pawsox of the Cape Cod League call this unique sanctuary home. Today is a Friday evening. The sun slowly pulls the last traces of orange from the sky, and the sky scraping light towers illuminate a 6 foot 4 inch right-hand er, made only taller by the Georgia clay ...
  • Major League Baseball Racism

    Racism is a problem that has existed in our society for many years. The roots of racism date back to when slavery was considered normal, and even further back then that. Racism happens all the time, everyday and everywhere. It is a complex issue which occurs at many different levels. In the world of sports racism is happening more often and becoming more of a concern. The first major example is of Jackie Robinson. Robinson is considered a leader in the black community for breaking the color barr...
  • Camden Yards And The Ballpark At Arlington
    1,984 words
    The current trend in baseball park construction is a retro design, reminiscent of the early years, combined with modern technology.

The current idea for ballpark construction is to locate the retro style parks in the heart of urban areas. The whole movement was initiated by the construction of O...

    Some stories start out slowly. Some start quickly. Some, unfortunately never start at all. It was the latter that was slowly becoming the bane - or, as he saw it, the description -- of Morgan Dubois' existence. Granted, his story was slow in forming not because of lack of effort or desire on his own part, but fizzled time and time again due to an enormous lack of cooperation from the outside world. The outside world, of course, being girls. Standing a modest six feet, two inches in height and ti...

  • Baseball And The Game In Japan
    1,792 words
    Japanese Baseball Japanese Baseball has existed in Japan since 1873. It first appeared amid the social, cultural and technological spasms Japan endured on the heels of the Meiji restoration. The game began as a club sport; Japan's first team was the Shinbashi Athletic Club Athletics (composed mostly of people associated with Japan's first railroad which ran from Shinbashi, in Tokyo, to Yokohama). For a relatively good treatment of Japan's early baseball history see Robert Whiting's "You " ve Got...

This number stood for thirty three years and was never to be beat, this was until a young New York Yankee from Fargo named Roger Maris came into the picture. In 1961 after battl...
  • Special Treatment To The Athletes
    491 words
    When people think about discrimination, they usually associate it with prejudice and connect it with race and gender. But discrimination can take another form. For example, a person can gain an unfair advantage at a job interview by being attractive or by being able to talk about something that has nothing to do with the job, like sports. The people who do not get the job would claim they were discriminated against, and to some extent they would be right. As an athlete, I've experienced both typ...

  • Fair Ball Bob Costas This Book
    409 words
    Fair Ball Bob Costas This book was based off of Bob Costas opinion on baseball. I recommend reading this book because he was full of great ideas for the Major Leagues.

Everything that caused the 1994 work stoppage could happen again after next season. However, Costas very thoughtfully lays out a plan primarily for the owners, s...

Yes, baseball is considered by many to be part o...
