Baseball is widely known throughout the world as the "American pastime". Well is it? Now we look at various teams throughout the MLB. First, the Red Sox, who recently won the ALCS and went to the World Series. I see 1....2....3....4....5...7...9..., a total of 9 players not born in the U.S. With a payroll of over $55,000,000. That is a lot of zeroes. And that is only one of the 30 teams in the MLB. People are being recruited from all over the world. And not just in baseball either. If you look around, many of our basketball or football players being draftedare not from the U.S. What we consider American sports: football, baseball, and maybe basketball, are all turning international. Football really hasnt caught on yet, but it will. There are already talks of having the Super Bowl in Engalnd sometime. Not that this is bad though. These sports and teams have brought over some great players, which has increased the excitement of the game(s) greatly. Maybe not having a true American pastime isn't such a bad thing. One last thing. For the love of god, PLEASE COMMENT!
