I love baseball. Always have, always will. My favorite team is the Texas Rangers. I have celebrated the good times and the not so good times and just love them more and more each day.
As I was watching an awesome game the Rangers were playing the other day, the MLB’s Commissioner came on with the announcers and did a little interview with them. I don’t know much about the Commissioner, Rob Manfred, but I liked what I heard from him on that day.
The Commissioner was talking about how he does listen to the team players and managers and truly desires to work with them because in the end they are all there because they love the game of baseball. This statement made me pause and realize that I agree with him.
Out of all the different sports out there, baseball is the one that shows all the players, whether team mates or team competitors, playing
around with each other and have just a good ‘ol time while playing against each other. Now, I am spoiled rotten because my team, the Texas Rangers, have the amazing Adrian Beltre on it, who I believe does not see a single person he plays against as an enemy.
Belts is always teasing and joking with his team mates as well as the opposing team members and it just reminds me that baseball is just a group of great guys who get together and play the one game they all love. It is nice to see when watching a sport.
So many times players in other sports view the opposing team as their enemy and treat them as such with rude comments, actions, etc. It is nice to watch the sport I love being celebrated by the players and fans of the game. Just makes my love for baseball that much more.
I want to Thank all the players, managers, owners, commissioner, and any other people involved in the wonderful game of Baseball for making my watching experience amazing!
