How many times have you heard that line? Fans of the 1986 comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off will remember it as a signature line from the film, but in reality, it can be traced back much farther. Probably as old as the game itself, "Hey, batter batter, swing batter batter” is perhaps the most uttered phrase in all sports, and is attributed specifically to the American Pastime itself.
That's what baseball is, after all; a classic American game that has survived two centuries of ups and downs. The passion for the sport has helped it bounce back from every stagnant phase over the years, making it a beloved game in the US with a glorious history.
Today, the seemingly simple ball game has come a long way from the days of the National Association of Base Ball Players (NABBP) which was created in 1857 by 16 New York Area Clubs. Expanding to states across the US, the game has taken the whole country by a storm and is now regulated under Major League Baseball (MLB) on a national level. This comprises a total of 30 teams who go head-on-head with each other throughout the season, with the World Series Championship determining the ultimate winner.
While the MLB is for the baseball pros, you don't have to be a professional athlete to participate in the dozens of baseball tournaments that take place across the US! The youth baseball tournaments are particularly abundant, with several events accommodating amateur teams during the sports season. With the availability of baseball tournament listings online, you can easily find one in your locality, or make plans for attending one happening in another state. The choices are endless!
Don't be afraid of striking out! The more matches you and your team participate in, the better you'll get at dodging every curveball thrown your way and hit one out of the park!
