Abstract:

Recounts ten high points in the history of baseball, including Ted Williams 1941 season, Jackie Robinson becoming the first African American major league player, and Nolan Ryan's seventh no-hitter. The sport of baseball is rich in special moments that will live on for generations. Players such as Cal Ripken Jr. and Joe DiMaggio have set records that are hard to break, while Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire have battled to break other records. The courage of Jackie Robinson paved the way for other African-American players, and the talent of Satchel Paige inspired players of all backgrounds. These athletes and others have entertained audiences and earned the respect of both fans and players alike.
