We confess not to commit same mistakes again but we chose to commit them again. The moral of this great story is that we humans can lead a moral life or be corrupt. The life type is uttered by the choices we make.
It was the best feeling I had ever experienced from baseball. The energy was awesome after the comeback win, and you could tell that red didn’t know what happened. They had us down and out in the second to last inning, but they couldn’t hold on. As they announced our names to get the trophies, we could hardly stand still. As I waited, I was thinking, I will never forget how it felt to win my first championship.
He earned the position the first time when he struck out the Whammer. After returning to baseball, Roy must again prove himself as the best. First, Roy must earn the respect from his coach and the players before he can attempt to make a name for himself. Once that is accomplished by showing off his hitting talents, Roy Hobbs easily becomes a household name. It takes awhile, but he does become the persistent front-page story.
Joe loves baseball and makes it to the major leagues, but it doesn’t last. Joe’s career is cut short due to the fact he is accused of throwing the World Series, and banned from baseball forever. Rays’s father would have loved it if his son made it to the major leagues because he thought Ray had the potential and talent. However, his only dream was simple, he wanted to play a game of catch with his son, unfortunately, he passed away and he never got to see his son after he ran away. Shoeless Joe Jackson’s death wasn’t any better, as he died guilty of throwing the World Series which was the biggest sports tragedy to date.
With all these hard ships he made a difference like he changed baseball by breaking the color barrier in the MLB. He also changed the world in the civil rights movement too. Because he was national icon people saw him marching for civil right and they changed their minds. Jackie was a brave man. In the face of adversity he didn’t back down he stepped up and made a difference.
Home field advantage should be earned by the team with the best overall record. It is not fair to rely on one game during the season because it impacts something so important. In baseball, players go on hot and cold streaks all of the time. Sometimes pitchers have bad games and give up a lot of runs. The All Star game should be a time for everyone to have fun.
He shot a determined look to the dirt. In a rivalry such as this (Cubs, Cardinals) he did not want to be the one to give up the great number 62. He cocked his arm back, to let loose what would be an eighty-eight mile an hour fastball that most men would not see fly by, but Big Mac was not most men. With one mighty swing, sixty-one was no more, ney sayers were silenced, and the game of baseball was changed forever. There was uproar in the park, cheers and screams, laughter and joy, fathers hugged sons and husbands kissed wives.
Roy Hobbs dream was to become a popular baseball player that one day he will break all the record of the books and will be "the greatest in the game." Hobbs big influence was his dad who was the source of motivation for him.

If you wanted to say George Ruth had it made all his life, you could. He made a lot of money, had two great wives and two great children, played the game he loved, partied half his life, and broke all the standing baseball hitting records of his time. But I bet if you were able to ask him today if he felt he had it made, he would probably say no. He did many great things on the field, but you have to remember the only way he became a star was by losing something every child needs, his parents. George Ruth had it all and was every little boys idol, but it didn’t come easy.
His father, W.H. Cobb was an honorable man who wanted him to pursue law or medicine, but Ty always had a knack for baseball, and stuck with it for the remainder of his life. Cobb fought his power but still loved, idolized, and respected his father. This was insane reading about, learning that his father had punished him time in and time out for ducking out of his studies even to the point of modern day child abuse, but Cobb keeped pushing through to his ultimate goal, being the greatest of all time in the sport he loved. The story very clearly follows Tyrus through his retellings to the author a few years before his death due to abuse of his poor mortal shell.
