The Celebrate Blogger of June Award Nomination Notice:

Play The Basebll Game Math The Right Way!

Take Me to The Ball Game…” I love this song, how about you?

Eye on the Ball.”

“Focus on the Batter!”

“Good swing, honey!”

“Run, steal the base!”

“Shake it off, Sweetie!”

“Come on, You Can Do it!”

Are you familiar with these comments?

I know this because I have been watching my kids’ baseball games in the past five years, I love baseball!

Math is in every baseball game, for each player, there is a matter of number of balls, and number of strikes each time he bats, plus number of bases he has advanced, it is on record. For each team, these is a matter of number of innings, number of scores made by each player, plus the order of batting, are you the first one to bat or the last one to bat?

Baseball math is meaningful if and only if it is for temporary facts, not for madness or frictions!

Results do not matter! Your involvements, the progress you have made via practices and competitions, the experiences you have gained in the game matter!

Never mind who batted first, who batted last! Math is for record, not for boasting or upsetting! You don’t need to be the fastest runner to hit a home run, you don’t have to be the tallest guy in your team to get out a batter from your opponent team, and you never need to become a pitcher to get center attentions from the crowds!

Baseball is fun because it is a game of democracy,  you have an equal opportunity to stand in front of the fans and get your batting done, you gain team player skills and upgrade your world views through the game itself!

I love baseball, I love the ball game song, and I wish you the best on the games you have to play!

Play your share

Be fair

That’s what you shall care

When the game is over

No despair!

Go, game players,

Run the bases,

Say your prayers,

Seize the power of faith and confidences,

Make the world series!

Consider life as a baseball game, we do math, we don’t go down with losing scores, if we can do it this way, baseball math is going to be fun to play to pass the day!

Enjoy The Best Day by Playing Baseball Game Math The Right Way!
