Whichever team pitches better in the series has the best of winning. A strong defense is important so that a team can eliminate as many runs as possible. The best way a defense can help is by picking up their pitcher in jam. Whenever team can turn double play or make diving catch to end inning is huge for the team. After a team pulls off a big play defensively that can cause momentum to switch sides and give a team the edge.
This series was played during World War 1, and prior to the first game at Comiskey Park the White Sox played the Star Spangled Banner to honor the troops. This would be the first time the Star Spangled Banner was played prior to a game and would become a common practice till this day. In 2005 the White Sox were a different team from what they have been in the past. They had powerful pitching and had the hitters to go with it. Then went in the playoffs as the underdogs but proved to be none the less.
Briana Curd Period 7 1/14/11 Ever thought that professional athletes salaries were a little to high ? Most people have always thought that long before this century, there has been a number of books and articles written on just on the salary of a professional athlete. Some may think that there is no way someone who just plays a sport should get paid that much. The athletes themselves think what they are getting paid is perfectly fine and that they should be receive that much amount of money because of what they do. The important issue about this whole salary of professional athletes is that they are over paid for just playing a sport for a few months.
Statistics. The number of homeruns a player makes per game, per season, or per career is the base of his salary. That number defines how valuable he is to his team. So, a player can make him more valuable by getting more homeruns. The way they do that is by giving themself an advantage over the other team, so they began stealing bases.
Professional sports are looking for opportunities and advantages all over the world. Professional sports are different than most occupations in that the average salary is significantly higher. The average salary for a Major League Baseball player in 2009 was $3.15 million. This is obviously significantly higher than the average U.S. salary of $42,000. This serves as an incentive for foreign children to excel in athletics not only to come to the United States, but also to maximize their potential earnings.
This is especially true in sports. Athletes in baseball and track and field only have a limited time, their playing careers, where they have high money making potential. Every year they struggle in their sport, it decreases their chances to maximize their earnings. If a baseball player can’t hit for power or average, they will be replaced in a highly competitive sport by other athletes who can. This leads players to look for an edge and increasingly in the past couple of decades this edge was
All major league baseball players depend on wages paid to continue living their normal lifestyles, regardless of whether they belong to the American or the National League. Salaries for each league, team, and player differ according to various circumstances. It is often the mindset of individuals including owners that when someone signs a contract to a team with outstanding averages, this person will automatically take the team to greater heights. Some individuals come with larger price tags that signs to these teams. The question in one’s mind is do the American League have a larger payroll than the National League.
The spectator sport needed professionals, and it needed amateurs. The professional series was then divided into two leagues, the National League in 1875, and the American League eventually in 1900. These two leagues would compete in their own games within a series of home and away games and then the winner of each league would become the World Series champion. This was a huge, innovative idea because this was like no other sport or event in its day. What is even more amazing is that when this idea was created, it stuck within the leagues and commissioners, and it’s used in so many more other sports.
Now and Then From the beginning of recorded time a deep-seated desire to compete has lived within every man. The cavemen judged their worth according to their strength, medieval knights were shown great honor for overcoming their opponents in the joust, and the Wild West showdown left the best man standing. The need to be superior is as strong in today’s society as it was thousands of years ago. The 1920s ushered in the greatest form of competition the world had possibly ever seen, called “The Great American Pastime”- baseball. Since then American culture has witnessed changes in science, entertainment, and technology, but none so impacting on the world of sports as those in realm of baseball.
April 24, 2012 The Professional Sports industry is and industry that has people wondering & questioning if the athletes that play them are over paid or not? Well in my opinion and many others tend to lean to thinking the athletes are paid correctly and not over paid. Why I think they are not over paid is simply because of what it takes to become a professional athlete and its entertainment for all the spectators as well as all of the hard work& dedication that is put into their jobs. What does it take to become a professional athlete? #1-Well the best answer would be that it takes a person that is more than dedicated, a person willing to surpass any obstacle, a person that wants it so bad that it becomes there life.
