Have you ever wondered why people say that baseball is America’s pastime? Have you yourself ever wondered why baseball is America’s pastime?
Howdy friends and welcome to BaseballXGear!
This is the first post on BaseballXGear and I wanted to share the thoughts of my awesome daughter on just what makes baseball such a passion for so many people.
She has gladly accepted the challenge and the following are her thoughts on just why baseball is America’s pastime.
Let’s dig right in and see what she has to say.
Why Baseball Is America’s Pastime
Whether boy or girl, man or woman, 5 or 105, baseball holds a special place in every American’s heart. There’s nothing quite like a day spent at the park watching the ball team.
No matter if they win or lose, we stay, and we keep coming back. We’ll spend hours at the local baseball field even if we couldn’t hit a ball if our lives depended on it.
Why? What makes baseball America’s pastime?
Baseball can be enjoyed by anybody.
You don’t have to be a certain color, height, weight, or gender to play the game. You don’t even have to be good. You simply have to have fun, and Americans love some good times. It is a great memory to make with your friends and family.
It’s fun to remember that at one time, you couldn’t throw, catch or hit a ball, and then remember the day your old man taught you. Baseball is not only a good way to pass time, but a great way to enjoy it.
Who We Are
Baseball represents who we are as a country.
It is a game that requires strength, endurance, and patience. Just as in our lives, mistakes in baseball are made when the focus is away from the important stuff.
Whenever this country is in a time of despair or sadness, baseball is right there to pick us up and show us that we are stronger than whatever pushed us down.
It shows us that we as a people have the ability to pick our heads up and win the game.
Legends of the Game
Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron. If you’ve lived in America for any amount of time, odds are you’ve heard these names, even if you don’t know the significance of them.
To quote the beloved classic baseball movie Sandlot, “Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.”
Baseball creates legends. Strong-willed individuals whose effect on the world stays prominent long after their time.
These legends have made baseball far more than just a way to pass time. They made it a way to show the character of America’s people.
