|There is no sport in American history that is more exciting than baseball. This is illustrated by the millions of people who huddle around television sets when something like the World Series competition is being played. Fans will don special colored costumes Tyler Ennis Jersey , paint their faces, hold up signs and, in general Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk Jersey , display their enthusiasm for the game. The winners are welcomed back to their hometown with parades and celebration parties.
Although there are no official records, it is believed that the game originated before 1861 with an English game called ’rounders’ which was played on sand lots. This game is still popular in the UK and Ireland schools and consists of hitting a ball with a bat and running around four bases. The game is mentioned, and called ‘baseball’ Shaquille O'Neal Jersey , in a book written in 1745.
Other names for baseball were ‘townball’ or ‘base’, finally settling on the name baseball. It was not until 1845 that a man named Alexander Cartwright composed a set of playing rules and introduced the idea of scoring and record-keeping. It was in 1846 that the first recorded contest took place and in 1871 that the first professional league was established.
Although many different American cities established a professional team, the game did not become a popular sport until the 1920’s when Babe Ruth became a national hero with his well publicized home runs. He was playing for the New York Yankees at the time and led them to victory and a number of World Series titles.
The game also contributed to the acceptance of African-Americans as players in popular sports. This occurred in 1947 when Jackie Robinson was brought into the major leagues. He played for the Brooklyn Dodgers and became well known for his athletic ability. Prior to his acceptance into the league all African-Americans were restricted to playing in a Negro League.
It was in the 1950s that the Western United States started wooing teams from the East. At this time expansion teams were formed with players available from other teams. Since the beginning of major league baseball there has been a National League and an American League.
Previous to its elimination in 2008 the sport had been included in the Olympic Games. The United States won the gold in this event in 2000. This game has spread around the world and Robert Horry Jersey , in 2006 an American team took part in the first annual World Baseball Classic, held in the United States. Baseball history in America has come a long way from its humble beginning as a ’rounders’ game on a sand lot.

You've probably heard of Stephen Covey and his bestseller, "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People". While his 7+1 habits (the 8th released quite recently) are good on their own Rajon Rondo Jersey , I have taken the liberty to take 5 principles from another time tested system, tested their validity on other existing success stories and evolved them to universally apply to this day and age.
These are universal and timeless principles, and brutal truths that do justice to those of us who crave to go beyond knowledge to wisdom and finally find and ultimately fulfill a grand self-defined purpose in life.
Without further ado Nick Van Exel Jersey , here are the top 5 theoretical principles of success:
Live, breathe, speak and act by the Truth. Instead of living your life by the standards of something you had never understood Moritz Wagner Jersey , be true to yourself (a common phrase usually meant to tell people to follow their whimsical desires) and only think, say or do those things that you truly, deeply mean.
“This above all – To thine own self be true”
At the same time Michael Cooper Jersey , always seek the Truth behind any and every matter, situation or circumstance. Do not be swayed by appearances or facades. Do not allow your most important decisions in life be influenced by conclusions that you had come to without rigorous investigation and validation.
What is the reality behind this situation? What is the truth of the circumstance? What is realistically my place in this scheme of things? What can I really influence? What is outside my control? What had truly caused me to be in this place and time?
Justice means a certain sense of harmony or fairness. Fairness does not necessarily equate with absolute equality. Justice means placing the right things at the right places. Just as you should be fair to others, you must be fair to yourself. Why should you deprive yourself of the right to fairness? Why should you be a martyr for others who may not want to appreciate you?
More importantly Magic Johnson Jersey , just because someone or a number of people had treated you unfairly or short-changed you before, you should not do the same to others, not even to those who had offended you. Justice also comes about as a natural extension of awareness of the truth.
Gain whatever knowledge is relevant and required of you at any moment. The first step to realizing the truth is to first gain knowle.
