5 Reasons I Might Actually Find Interest In Baseball Season This Year
Ashley Mir

I have never been a big sports person. Growing up, my family didn't really "have a team." My dad came here from France, so his focus has always been on international soccer teams. And my mom really couldn't care less.

As I grew up, I kind of wished my family had a deep devotion to a specific team. I envied my friends who had a huge family hangouts on Sundays to watch their favorite football team.

And now, being 20 years old, it's kind of hard to randomly get into sports as deeply as so many people have been since they were like eight years old.

Of all the sports I've ever participated in or watched, baseball has always been at the bottom of my list.

Basketball has always been my favorite. But baseball was just too boring for me. Something about the idleness of the players 90% of the time and nine innings just really lowered my interest.

But recently, I have found myself looking up home Yankee games. I went to my very first game last summer, and it was honestly such a great time.

As most girls can agree, one of the reasons my interest in baseball has grown is due to the players.

1. Aaron Judge.

We all know chicks dig the long ball! Well, look no further than Yankee's right fielder, Aaron Judge. Aaron took home the 2017 ROY Award by clubbing an American League leading 52 home runs. Oh yeah, did I mention he's a Yankee?

2. Bryce Harper.

The newest, and most expensive, member of your Phialdelphia Phillies. Bryce Harper signed a whopping 13-year contract worth over $330 million. And he's hot. I'll be there Sunday night to catch him live.

3. Mike Trout.

Born and raised on the outskirts of Camden, New Jersey, Mike Trout is the consensus best player in the game today. Sad to say he's taken, but that doesn't mean we can't look. With being the best comes great perks. To put his contract with the Angels in perspective, he makes $98,000 per day for the next 12 years. Yes, please.

4. Kris Byrant.

Kris Bryant is an All-Star 3B for the Chicago Cubs. Byrant took the league by storm in just his second season and led the Cubs to their first World Series, ending a 108 year drought. Did I mention that he has a bromance with the aforementioned Bryce Harper?

5. Carlos Correa.

The shortstop for the Houston Astros has carved out a nice little career so far. Correa has three Gold Glove awards, three All-Star appearances, and a World Series title. All this before the age of 25. All that is cool, but have you seen him in uniform?

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
