Hometown sports are more than just game - they shape our lives and unite us and celebrate who we are as Americans.
"Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can suceed three times out of 10 and be considered a good preformer."
Our love of sports begins in our hometowns. We play on ball fields and sandlots, on courts and on ice, in parks and playgrounds, even in the street. Win or lose, we yearn to compete and play another day. If we're not playing sports, we're watching - from the stands rooting on our sons and daughters as they take their first swing or score their first goal.
