Baseball is known as America's pastime due to the special place that many fans have in their hearts
for the game. That's why fans are always looking to get out to the ballpark to catch a game in person, the way it was meant
to be seen. As usual, the 2014 Major League Baseball schedule looks to be packed with fantastic matchups all season long.
2014 schedule features 162 games for each team, which makes for a long season but plenty of opportunities for fans to attend
games. Seeing a baseball game from the stands is a totally different experience than watching it from the confines of your
living room, and you'll have plenty of chances to see some big matchups in 2014. Rivalry games are some of the best matchups
every year, especially that between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. These American League East rivals have had some
legendary battles in the past, and fans are always clamoring to get into either Yankee Stadium or Fenway Park to see the action
unfold right before their eyes.
When the regular season is wrapped up, fans will be treated to the best baseball of
the season when they attend playoff games. The MLB playoffs are always filled with incredible action and intense moments that
have the fans in attendance on their edges of their seats. It all leads up to the World Series, one of the most storied championship
series in the history of sports. The World Series provides fans with endless memorable moments that stick with those who saw
them happen for the rest of their lives.
Baseball is known as America's pastime and is a special
game for many people across the United States. Baseball was first organized into a league in the 1860s with The National Association
of Base Ball Players. This organization was the foundation for what would become Major League Baseball. Babe Ruth was baseball's
first superstar player, as his hitting prowess was legendary during his time and remains so to this day. Ruth was so ahead
of his time as far as home run hitting went, some seasons he hit more home runs than entire teams. Ruth set the single season
home run record with 60 during his career, a record that would stand until 1961 when it was broken by Roger Maris. Jackie
Robinson was the first African American player to play in Major League Baseball, breaking the color barrier and winning the
league's first Rookie of the Year award. In the 1970s Henry "Hank" Aaron would break Ruth's career home run record, which
was 714. Aaron ended up hitting 755 homers during his career.
Major League Baseball is broken into two leagues, the
American League and the National League. For a long time the team with the best record from each league received an automatic
trip to the World Series, where the World Champions of baseball would be decided. Currently there is a playoff format in which
five teams from each league make the postseason and have to win multiple series to advance to the World Series.
as a Fan
Baseball is a part of American history and fans of the sport are some of the most loyal in the sporting world.
Going to a baseball game is something that a lot of current fans did as a child, and the fond memories that come with taking
a trip to the ballpark are something that they wouldn't trade for the world. People love going to baseball games for a variety
of reasons, but the common denominator is the appreciation of a sport that has a rich history and tradition.
New fans to the game of baseball will have to take a little time to understand the rules, but once they do
they're likely to like what they're seeing. The idea of hitting a round ball with a round bat is about as difficult as it
seems, as you'll notice that a player that fails seven out of 10 times is still considered very good. Heading to a baseball
game is one big experience, and if you doubt it, just listen to the song "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." So head to the stadium
and see a Major League Baseball game for yourself, and you'll see what you've been missing.
a baseball game in person is doing it the way it was meant to be done. Going to a game is an experience that goes beyond watching
a bunch of players throw and the hit the ball all over the field. It's the smell of the stadium, the roar of the crowd, the
atmosphere that make it such a wonderful time. People have been going to baseball games for more than 100 years, so it stands
to reason that it's something worth doing.
