Imagine life without baseball. We wouldn’t have exciting plays at the plate. We wouldn’t have monster 500 foot home runs. We wouldn’t have no-hitters or perfect games. And we wouldn’t have a World Champion declared every October. Baseball has been around for over 100 years and thankfully, it isn’t going away anytime soon. Baseball has long been America’s Pastime and is at the heart of American Culture.
Baseball first rose in popularity thanks to players like Babe Ruth, who was a threat on both sides of the ball as a pitcher and a hitter. Fast forward 100 years and we’re seeing a similar dominance from Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani. No matter when you became a fan of this wonderful sport, there has always been a set of stars who influenced the game and gave everyone a reason to watch.
Following the September 11th attacks in 2001, baseball became a symbol of unity and patriotism. Giant on-field US flags were frequently displayed, fighter jet fly-overs were introduced, and support for the armed forces was seen more than ever on the Diamond.
