15 Reasons Why I Love Baseball

It's America's past time, what's not to love?

15 Reasons Why I Love Baseball

Baseball. America's past time. Baseball is the definition of the American community. The sport, from the Little League level to the Major League's brings so many incredible things about this amazing sport.

1. Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks.

The food is one of the best things to enjoy at a baseball game. Hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy, peanuts, and cracker jacks. Yum yum yum!

2. At bat warm-up songs.

This is the time when you get to hear what the players' top songs are on their playlists. It also provides great mini-dances with your friends in the seats before the player is up to bat.

3. Perfect games.

There is a certain beauty in the accomplishment of completing a no-hitter. Even if the pitcher is of the opposing team, being able to see a moment like that is memorable.

4. Home runs.

The beauty, the form, the swing, the distance.

5. The decisive calls.

One bad call, the game can totally change. Also, throwback to this horrible call against the Red Sox in the World Series Game 3 against the Cardinals, where the Cardinals won the game on a wrong "obstruction" call. #stillbitter But at least the Red Sox still won the championship that year despite this call.

6. The crazy umpires.

We all hate the umps. The second you see a bad umpire on the list for the game, you already start blaming the loss on the umpire. Also check out this great 10 minute video on some of the worst calls in history.

7. The high-fives all around.

You may not personally know the fans that are sitting behind or in front of you, but you will by the end of the game.

8. 3-2 count.

You hold your breath the entire time and can only take a breath when the player continues to hit fouls.

9. The signs.

They're funny, they're rude, they're sweet. If you have free time, look at the top 100 best fan signs here.

10. The long season filled with great fans.

It's a wonderful sport that you can enjoy for half the year.

11. The dedication.

They'll run into the stands to get that catch.

12. The catches.

I think baseball players have super powers and so do the fans.

14. The cheering. Especially at the World Series Championship game.

The cheers mixed with tears after the biggest game of the season are the moments you'll remember forever.

15. Most importantly, the pants.

Thank God for those tight pants.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
