Major League Baseball 2015 Overview by Joshua Liao

Major League Baseball 2015 Overview

                The 2015 baseball season is underway, and every day until September, there will a baseball game on television. There is much to be excited for this year. The Nationals are vying to become baseball’s next super team after acquiring superstar pitcher Max Scherzer. This will also be the first time in almost 2 decades where Derek Jeter will not trot out as the Yankee’s starting shortstop. Speaking of the Yankees, Alex Rodriguez is back after a year away from baseball, and as one of the game’s most famous and highest paid athletes, you can bet that people will be tuning in for his return and scrutinizing his every move. Mike Trout, widely considered to be the best player in the game right now, continues to wow fans, viewers, and haters alike. Clayton Kershaw and his devastating curveball is trying to win yet another Cy Young Award. People will stop in mid-bite to watch Giancarlo Stanton bat. No one wants to miss a 600 foot home run, nor will they want to miss Yasiel Puig’s trademark laser from deep right field to third base. This is why we love baseball. The game’s players come up with spectacular feats that some of us marvel at while others try to duplicate. As summer comes around, you can always count on a few things: Every major league baseball team will be fighting their tails off at a chance for to play in the World Series and parks around America will be filled with youngsters with a dream of playing major league baseball one day.
