His dedication to his team and to his teammates is proven on two occasions, one in both the book and the movie, and the other in only the movie. The first occasion is while Billy warms up before the big game. The team manager, Maxwell, informs him that he plans on sitting Gus, the catcher, out for the game and replacing him with a man with more power who can hit homeruns. Billy adamantly, but respectfully refuses, stating that he will pitch to nobody but Gus. “NO.” Chapel said.

Douglas Gove Billy Beane 10/3/12 Billy Beane the Story of Moneyball October 15, 2001. A single figure sat alone, radio in hand listening to the fifth and final game of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees. The rawer of the crowd over the radio said it all, the Oakland A’s amazing 102 win season was over. Disappointment could not describe how Oakland’s General Manager Billy Beane felt as he sat alone inside the Coliseum. Billy’s dream of bringing a World Series to the city of Oakland was eliminated.
My dad, two brothers, and I were sitting in the first row of the outfield when Bobby Higginson, a Detroit Tigers player, came up to hit for batting practice. Sure enough after two swings he hit one all the way to the wall. The ball was right in front of us on the field but we could not reach it. A player picked the ball up, and I started screaming, “Sir! Can I please have that ball?” He looked up at me in the stands and tossed the ball up.
Sounds of Silence It was 1944 when Danny Saunders strolled onto the muddy baseball field in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and fronted Reuven Malters for the first time. Little did they know that the war of a ball game would become the foundation of a new and unaccustomed friendship. The game was approaching its end when Reuven emerged through the hospital doors after being struck in the glasses with a baseball by Danny, foreshadowing his changing views of religion and ways of life throughout the story. “I put on my spare glasses…everything looked fresh and clean”(20), implying that Reuven is starting to develop a more accepting attitude towards different lifestyles and unalike philosophies. He begins to view everything from a different perspective
Right after finishing the ball everyone jogs off the field, letting the reader know that those were the last two outs and that the inning was over. Throughout the poem Robert Wallace uses different words to describe the sport of baseball, giving it a more artistic feeling while making a double play. In this simile, “In his sea-lit distance, the pitcher winding like a clock about to chime come down with the ball” (1-4), the author describes how the pitchers lines up and delivers the ball, releasing it at the sound of the chimes, meaning when it hits the top of the hour mark. Then Wallace uses another simile to explain the act of hitting the ball towards a defending player, “hit sharply, under the artificial banks of arc lights, bounds like a vanishing string…” (4-6). This reflects the speed in which the ball is being hit and projected in the field.
“Hey kid, I like your hat. Wanna trade?” I was astonished to hear these words come from a person who I had looked up to for the last two years of my life. Roger Cedeño was traded to the New York Mets in 2001 and was their starting leadoff hitter for the following two years. At this point in my life, I was an avid Mets fan, even at the age of 8, and quickly began to admire the way Mr. Cedeño handled himself on and off the field. On May 15th of 2002, the Mets were playing the Montreal Expos in Shea Stadium and my father had obtained two front row seat tickets to the game via his business partner.
There were no programs to copy. It was decided that: · Every player bats once each inning · All players are safe on the bases · Every player scores a run before the inning is over (last one up gets a home run) · Community children and volunteers serve as ‘buddies’ to assist the players · Each team and each player wins every game
