Baseball Americas favorite pastime is the greatest game ever invented in my opinion It provides for team victories and championships but it also focuses on individual achievement in batting pitching and every other action that decides winners and losers The game was invented by Abner Doubleday but baseballs true father was Alexander Cartwright In the mid 1800s Cartwright formalized a list of rules which teams could play Abner Doubleday and Alexander Cartwright collectively created a sport and tradition that has been popular for approximately 150 years Baseball is played by millions around the world A game that involves throwing catching and hitting seems so simple Yet there are only 700 Major League baseball players in the World Why is that Try hitting a ninety-five mile-per-hour fastball then adjusting to an off-speed pitch Pitchers can master a variety of off-speed pitches These pitches consist of a change-up curve ball knuckle ball screw ball slider and sinker Each pitch moves in its own mysterious way Home plate is only sixty feet- six inches from the pitchers mound You have approximately one-tenth of a second to react Which pitch do you expect next Dont expect anything just think fastball and adjust to a slower off-speed pitch If you ever guess off-speed the heat will blow right by you Unlike other professional sports such as basketball and football baseball has more challenging leagues after college You do not advance straight to the top You have to compete in Single A Double A and Triple A Then if youre good enough you will make the Major Leagues The majority of kids growing up with the same dream of becoming of a professional baseball player end their ever long dream after high school My one and only dream was discontinued after high school which means I will have to be content watching all the baseball I can on television and then watching the recap on the highlights every night on Sports
