We need the sports world to continue to engage in politics. We need athletes and coaches to use their presence to better educate people and spread awareness. The division that the president is trying to create is unacceptable, and having athletes from across the board come together creates a force to be reckoned with. In the past 24 hours, players from the NFL, NBA, and MLB have all united on a much deeper level than just being professional athletes.
If an athlete, musician or anyone else in the public eye wants to speak up for what they believe in, then by all means - we should encourage that! You are allowed to disagree with their opinion, but you cannot criticize them for having one.
Over the past year, we’ve seen the unthinkable happen in more instances than one. Statistics and predictions try to be as reliable and accurate as possible, but they still can’t take into account the rise and fall of humans, fate, destiny, luck or whatever else you want to call it. As much as we’d like to be able to, we can't predict the future.
Baseball. A game that we’ve all grown to love. Whether that love began the day we were born or in our childhood or even in adulthood, we all share the same passion.
