Baseball at its finest
Baseball is known as America’s Pastime. The sport that brings families to the game has been around for over a hundred years. There are memorable stories and priceless memories that people talk about when discussing the game with their kids and or grandchildren.

...Perception: Baseball Ever since I was a child, baseball has been a passion and love of mine. I would watch the Mets play every night on TV. with my family ever since I could remember. On the hot summer days, we would bring the TV. outside and watch the games until the stars were shinning over us. Playing baseball was also something I did almost every day too, whether it is in my back yard with my older cousins or parents or on the baseball field during a game. When I was young I loved the game and played more for the love of the game but as I grew older, I began to understand the game and pay close attention t hw my teammates played and my opponents as well. Baseball has now turned into somewhat of a class now for me. I try and correct my mistakes to better myself and I watch others to see what they do in certain situations or to see what they do that allows them to overpower their opponents. My perception of baseball is now focused on pitchers in the major leagues. I try to learn what the great ones do to excel because watching and studying the best will only benefit me down the road. After watching baseball for practically 15 years, I have learned that all pitchers have their own styles, deliveries and philosophies but the mechanics of most pitchers are the same. Many pitchers believe in the same types of mechanics. Some examples would be to keep your shoulders level while in your motion or driving off the rubber with your back leg to generate their maximum......

...Small Group Comm. January 2013 Participation Assignment 1 The group I chose to reflect on for this assignment is the baseball team here at Western New England University, my freshman year in particular. When reminiscing back on the 2011 season, I can recall many specific qualities of Keyton’s criteria that this group displayed. As a freshman, I paid close attention to our group who exhibited many qualities of leadership and aspiration, goals that I hope to impose upon my under classmen. With respect to size, the team barley fit Keyton’s threshold, usually carrying no more than 19 players on average throughout the season. The group was interdependent, and heavily relied on the next man to “step up” and make a play. In order for a successful baseball team, interdependence is required, and our actions and energy often influenced each other to succeed. The team shared one particular but strenuous goal: winning a national championship. This goal is impossible to be achieved with one person, but large enough to require everyone’s participation. With regards to group identity, our team was a tight knit unit. Respect was earned and given where needed and the team acted as a large family, eating meals together and hanging out off the field as well. The task of our team, winning a championship was agreed upon by most of our team. Those members with less significant roles and “weren’t there mentally” bringing down our morale. Our structure and roles were both......

...Baseball is America’s pastime for the last one hundred years. Baseball has brought joy and happiness to many people’s lives throughout the years. Baseball is theater to many people. It shows the struggle between two different teams playing their hearts out to win a championship; just like two countries going to war. Baseball has many star players and many great players that people have grown up with and idolized. Children play games in the local park pretending that they are Mark McGuire or Barry Bonds, hitting the game winning home run in the ninth inning with two outs to win the World Series. In my essay, I will be describing the ritual that I gravitate to. I will convey the six elements of theater while describing the ritual that I gravitate to: baseball. First, there are the baseball players. They are the actors in this particular genre of theater. They play nine different positions on the field on defense, while the opposing team only has one person on the field batting. If he reaches one of the bases, another person will also bat. The players play the biggest part at a baseball game. They produce all of the excitement that can drive the fans crazy. They do this by hitting homeruns, making spectacular catches, and striking out opposing batters. Second, we have the managers and umpires. They play the part of the director. The manager determines who gets to be on the field, what position they play, and what they should do while batting. The manager can take a player......

...1 Dr. Gray English 121 Removed spacing September 23, 2013 The Salary Cap Home Run Imagine an owner of a baseball team who could only afford to pay $30 million to all of the players, at the same time a competitor could pay $230 million to get all of the best players. Do you think the team with only $30 million would ever stand a chance of competing against them in a playoff race? With no spending rules in place this is becoming the new reality in Major League Baseball. The lack of a salary cap in baseball is allowing teams that have money to spend extravagantly, giving those teams an unfair advantage over those that cannot afford heavy spending. While spending big does not always guarantee a championship, it has been shown to increase the chances of a playoff appearance. Excessive spending on players is one of the major issues. Compare this to a sport like the NFL where a salary cap has been in place for over two decades, and it is clear how spending limits can create a more even playing field. Spending has been shown to increase the chances of having a playoff caliber team. Two separate studies of baseball payrolls conducted from 2000-2010 confirm this. During this ten year period, of the fourteen teams with payroll over $100 million, fifty-three of those made a playoff appearance, versus twenty-five appearances for those with a payroll under $100 million. Of the teams that spent more than the league average over this period, sixty-nine percent made it to the......

Accounting Baseball

...KANSAS CITY ZEPHYRS BASEBALL CLUB: A BASEBALL ACCOUNTING DISPUTE This case is used to illustrate some basic accounting issues in a controversial setting. The controversy arose because the baseball team owners and the players association were engaged in collective bargaining negotiations and the outcome of those negotiations depended on the parties’ agreeing on the true profitability of the baseball business. The case describes 3 areas in which the accounting is being disputed: 1. Roster depreciation; 2. Player compensation; 3. Transfer pricing of related party operations (stadium costs); 1. Roster Depreciation The owners recognize depreciation of a value placed on the player roster at the time the baseball club was purchased apparently just because tax rules allowed them to do so. Tax rules allow this value to be set arbitrarily at a maximum of 50% of the purchase price (It would be foolish to set it at a lower value for tax purposes). The depreciation is spread linearly over six years and comes to $2m per year. The players do not feel that any roster depreciation should be shown: if anything, they argue, the roster appreciates as the players become more experienced. The economic truth is that player rosters - baseball clubs’ most valuable assets - appreciate and depreciate over time: good scouting, trades, and coaching increase the roster value. In contrast, injuries and retirements decrease it. The roaster should hence not be......

...them on a more personal level because every person is different. Everybody learns, take criticism, and act in different ways. Not every player can grow and get better from constant yelling; some people need a more one on one conversation on the side not in public. Good coaches should be able to recognize traits and personalities. In conclusion, there are numerous amounts of factors that go in to being a good coach. After doing the research, the information I came across would help me be even more prepared for a job as a coach. They have taught me many life long lessons that have helped me become the person I am today and I hope to pass on those lessons to others as well. A coach plays many roles and have a huge impact on their players lives....

...Although many argue that the answer to the question “how could the world be a better place?” should be left to intellectuals, politicians or scholars, I believe that the best answer to this questions is demonstrated by 60,000 baseball fans. Fans at a baseball game do not merely provide support for the home team, but also a metaphor for life. Specifically, the actions of the spectators at a game illustrate the selfish desires of human nature as well as a possible answer to improve life for all. For example, when I attend a baseball game, I notice that many fans have individual aspirations for success beyond which team wins the game. It appears that ultimate desire of a baseball fan is to be featured on the Jumbo-tron, the oversized television screen located within the stadium. Many fans believe that the Jumbo-tron brings everlasting happiness and glory to any featured on its oversized screen. However, while the Jumbo-tron allows some to rejoice in their fifteen seconds of fame, I have noticed that it also has a dark side. At times the Jumbo-tron arouses hidden feelings of jealousy towards those like Joe Jones, from section 435 row G seat 1, when he wins a free tub of extra large nachos and his success is celebrated on the large screen in center field. While some fans completely disregard the aspirations and desires of others just so their individual goals can be met, there is always one courageous fan that stands up and represents the coming together of people in order to......

...thing that stands out about our similarities is that we both played baseball in college. My grandpa grew up on the west side of Chicago in a neighborhood called Garfield Park. He grew up in a lower class family that often couldn’t afford nice things. Since he loved the game of baseball, situations would sometimes come down to if he wanted a new baseball glove or new cloths. My grandpa no brainer would pick the baseball glove. After high school, my grandpa went on to attend Western Illinois University on a full baseball scholarship. During his baseball career at Western Illinois, a lot of pro scouts would come to see him play. Teams would send him letters and even visit with him to talk about his future. My grandpa was never interested in playing professional baseball though. It always was hard for me to understand why he never took up the chance to be a professional baseball player. I mean let's be honest, who doesn’t want to be a professional athlete when you’re a kid? Whenever I would ask him, my grandpa would always tell me “Matt there are way more important things than playing a game that involves hitting a ball with a stick in life”. Being young and dumb, I would also ask too, what can be more important than that? My grandpa would look at me and say, Family first. As I grew older, his statement would make more and more sense to me. There really are things in life that are more important. After all, as baseball players were told at some point we can’t play the......

Baseball Integration

...BaseballTyler Lucas Coach Thompson Baseball Through The years 1-22-15 Integration of Baseball Baseball is called “America’s past time”. Baseball can trace its origins as far back as Abner Doubleday in 1839. The Emancipation Proclamation was signed in 1863, and it freed more than 3 million enslaved African Americans. With this stroke of a pen, millions of lives were changed, African American and White American. For decades, white plantation owners had owned slaves and made them do various tasks for them. With slaves becoming free, the African American people were now free to do as they please. While social prejudices existed for many years after this, black Americans started to find their foothold in society. The Negro National League was started in 1920 and this upset many white Americans. The color barrier was broken on April 18, 1946 when Jackie Robinson signed with the Dodgers. The integration of baseball was a long process, because baseball was a game founded by white men that had a deep rooted superiority complex when it came to black people. Jackie Robinson was brought to the Brooklyn Dodgers by owner Branch Rickey. His first appearance was with the Dodgers’ affiliate the Montreal Royals of the International League. Robinson eventually joined the Brooklyn Dodgers and propelled them to the NL pennant. Branch Rickey had a plan to bring the best players from the Negro Leagues to the Dodgers and other teams in professional baseball. By 1952 there were 150 black......

...The Big Fight Improving race relations in the United States is a battle that we have been fighting since the start of this great country. The issue of race has evolved over time, but still continues to affect society. The Trayvon Martin shooting, Donald Trump's campaign, and the Duke Lacrosse team, have sparked racial controversy in America. The split between races is becoming more evident than ever. Trayvon Martin, an African American, was killed by an armed gunman in Ferguson, Missouri. Race was forced to the forefront of social media after this senseless act of violence. The phrase “Black Lives Matter” became the unified slogan by many African Americans and was mainly used for peaceful, and sometimes violent protests. This shooting received nationwide attention and soon turned into what social media would say was a race crime. Most of the evidence in this case pointed to Travon Martin acting as a suspicious character in a quiet community.  The way he walked and dressed would end up being his downfall. The real question is why did America make it seem like a racial shooting rather than a careless act of violence between a Hispanic male and an African-American male. Social media hyped this shooting to another level and made it about race where everyone had to pick a side whether they wanted to or not, causing huge racial tension throughout America. Recent elections have brought racism back to the limelight in America with the help of social media, and front runner...

...Name Professor Subject Date Introduction Baseball is a team sport which has two teams that have nine players on each team. At a time, one team bats while the other team fields attempting to score runs. The batter from a team hits the ball pitched by a player from the opponent’s team. If the batter hits the ball, he or she should run counterclockwise around a series of only four bases. The bases are: first, second, third and home base. Aplayer from the batting team can only complete a run by running through the four bases in order. The player finishes on the home plate. While one team bats, the other team fields using pitchers. The fielding team tries to eliminate players that are batters trying to ensure they complete as few runs as possible.

Baseball and Health

...Baseball & Health Jeremy Rostker 04/17/08 A healthy and active lifestyle is important to the quality of my life and the achievement of my goals as it allows me to live longer and participate in activities I enjoy. It also strengthens my immune system and lowers my chance of disease. My goal in life is to be successful in all of my endeavors. Doing things like playing sports, participating in P.E. and taking a biology class are helping me to live healthy. I make sure to stay healthy and in shape because I know it will benefit me greatly. If I didn’t play sports or eat healthy I would likely become overweight and unhealthy. Although my chances of becoming a professional athlete are slim (I know this because my teacher did a probability exercise demonstrating this to get me to focus on “academics”!), a healthy life is essential for me to overcome the odds. Statistics show that overweight people are more likely to suffer heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses. They also have a shorter life span. According to the American Heart Association, in 2006, about 136 million U.S. adults were overweight or obese and 25 million children were at risk of becoming overweight. Besides poor eating habits, smoking is also a major contributor to unhealthiness. Smoking can damage your body and lifestyle immensely. When you smoke, you’re at risk for cancer. Smoking can also cause......
