Baseball. It’s not just a game. It’s everything. It’s the national pastime, a game with stories and legends that when laced together showcase America and its best. It sits at the intersection of strategic thinking by owners, managers and coaches. With the crack of a bat, it is snap decision-making by batter, fielder, and umpire. STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) makes today’s game way different from our grandfather’s baseball—but a backyard game of catch with dad still preserves the intimacy of a youngster’s dreams for greatness. Its characteristics express wholesomeness, discipline, and fair play. #BeLegendary GO NATS! #FinishTheFight
