Americans think differently from Chinese people because we have more independence than them. In the book the Brave Dragons, the team had to go through these difficult and extensive training sessions that were supposed to get them better. Derek Jeter is an example, in his career he had to become a better player because he was doing too many mistakes. To get better he went to a training camp where he practice his catching skills and also his batting skills. When we talk about the different paradigm between the American and the Chinese, Derek Jeter accomplishment apply to the American paradigm because Jeter loved baseball since he was a little boy and always knew he was going to join the New York Yankees.
During the 9/11 crisis, baseball helped take Americans minds off of the disaster and give them something to celebrate about. Baseball has done so much for its country, and it’s about time we do something in return. Umpires are far from perfect, like other professional officials, and they make mistakes. But, unlike basketball and football, baseball rarely uses today’s technology to its advantage. The implementation
I could see the seams of the ball rotate as the ball rifled toward the batter as he began to swing--already too late. Mr. Newton, and Mr. Nash were tops on the long list of people I needed to thank. Which got me wondering whether it would be a good idea for baseball major leagues to recruit consultants who are not only well versed in physics, but also in game theory? It could become a new career option for kids like me to pursue. And who knows, maybe one day, after college, I will be sitting on the sidelines helping someone like Derek Jeter better his game.
With 2 outs and 3 runners on bases, the Giants’ main hitter hit a homerun out of the park, and the Giants won by one point, also winning the pennant by one point. After two major upsets in a row, the Dodgers were made fun of and many people said their team was too scared to play baseball in the major leagues. Even throughout all of this tormenting, Kahn says that the Dodgers kept their heads held high and that they didn’t let the tormenting get to them. Kahn then explains how much pressure the Dodgers were under and how well they dealt with the pressure and how they deserved respect for staying brave and courageous in a time of trouble. Roger Kahn, in a passage of his book The Boys of Summer, argues that the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball players deserved respect for the brave front that they put on in a time of trouble.
I'll wonder, like everyone else, how much Ramirez's performance was chemically enhanced. Less debatable is the fact that he transformed the 2008 Los Angeles Dodgers. People like me made a case for him as the National League's first two-month MVP, then spent the offseason castigating the McCourts for not bidding against themselves. As it concerned Manny and the Dodgers, they owed him. Frank McCourt and Manny Ramirez in much happier times.
Selling players at a high price that they purchased for a lower price is making money. Billy saw the same capabilities of patience, efficiency and control of players that the other people with management didn’t. This was his strong point and he motivated the rest of the major leagues to kick off their own version of this theory by being stubborn and sticking to his guns. Jackie Robinson became a player of the major leagues in 1947, playing for the Boston Red Sox and the last team of the 16 teams that became integrated. You must imagine the strain of not having any friends on the team or fans in the crowd, facing discrimination by his very own teammates during practices and games.
Title:The Burden of Shame. (Nation)(reparations for Japanese Americans interned during World War II) Byline: Jane O'Reilly At last, amends for World War II internment camps? "When I heard rumors that all Japanese would be interned, I couldn 't believe it. I kept saying that I was a loyal American citizen and that it just couldn't happen in a democracy." --Testimony of Mabel Ota It did happen.
The film comes to an end with the recognition of some of the players who were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and some powerful facts about baseball. 42 delivered a powerful story and left me inspired to believe that anything is possible no matter how big the obstacle in front of me is. The movie depicts the ugly racism that Jackie Robinson faced daily in 1947. It was a reminder to stay strong and persevere even in the face of hatred. It was interesting to me how accurate the setting seemed, the baseball fields were old fashioned compared to modern fields, and the reenactment was very well done in my opinion.

Finding motivation I told the team “Ignore the negative thoughts and comments. People who are not on the field with us don’t have the same mental strength to be playing and making a difference to ourselves and the school.” My team persevered and while our baseball may not have finished the season with the strongest scores we finished, heads up high looking towards our next season. It has been a distinct honor to serve as takes the team captain. Through leadership experiences I gained the power and motivation to serve well as a second coach to my team and evolve into the confident student I am today. Baseball great Mickey Mantle once said, "It's unbelievable how much you don't know about the game you've been playing all your life."
