Baseball is the 2nd richest sport in the world. However, during the Covid-19 season, there are baseball players who have to complain about the risk of starvation before being affected by the disease.
According to the statistics of Rulesofsport, in the 10 richest sports in the world, baseball is ranked at No. 2 and is also expected to rise to No. 1 in the future. Statistics show that the average salary of baseball village up to 3.82 million USD / year. For comparison, the average salary in the Premier League is only $ 1.6 million / year. The only sport richer than baseball is basketball, with an average annual salary of $ 4.9 million. Texas Rodriguez’s Alex Rodriguez earned $ 33 million in 2019. Meanwhile, the brand value of the New York Yankees baseball team amounted to $ 4.6 billion. However, going into the baseball village to see the prosperity in the newspaper is not for all. Somewhere in the American baseball village, many players are joking that they can “starve to death before the disease”. It is a harsh fact that without Covid-19, very few people know this truth.
The wealth of the American baseball village only focuses on the big players playing at the MLB (the highest baseball league in the US). However, in lower leagues, such as MiLB, for example, there are players who are struggling with an allowance of only … 10 USD / day in the time of non-competition And when the stadium lights, their salary is only between 1,200 USD – 2,400 USD / month, lower than the average income of Americans. John O’Reilly of the Rutgers baseball team is an example. After the MiLB was closed, O’Reilly was not economically strong enough to stay in the city. He had to carry luggage back at his parents’ home in New Jersey.
The American Professional Baseball League (MLB) brings together many international players from CH Dominica, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Nicaragua, and many other countries. However, these people are currently having difficulty in the process of entering the US to focus on the team due to the government tightening immigration procedures because of the Covid-19 epidemic. Some people are still facing financial difficulties as the host club announces that they will suspend the payment of wages because they are no longer playing.

Jennifer Lopez now owns an estimated fortune of more than $ 400 million, while her husband, Alex Rodriguez also has a similar fortune (more than $ 350 million) after playing for famous baseball teams like New. York Yankees, Texas Rangers, and Seattle Mariners from 1994 to 2016. The couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have been dating since February 2017 and engaged in March 2019. They planned to hold a lavish wedding recently but had to postpone it because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Earlier this May, the couple and their investors approached the board of the New York Mets team with an offer to buy the team, but were rejected.
However, the deal was recently resumed after business owners Fred and Jeff Wilpon, the owners of the baseball team, began to “inflict” financial losses because the postponed season caused great damage, and The team is also falling into a spiral of debt. Therefore, the owners of the New York Mets are planning to sell the team. Jennifer Lopez and her husband and investors decided to “pump” hundreds of millions of dollars into a deal jointly supported by JPMorgan Chase bank to soon complete the acquisition of a baseball team valued at more than $ 2 billion.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez will spend huge sums of money on the New York Mets deal and will be the new owners, alongside investors backing them. The pair Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, if running the New York Mets baseball team, will also create a new trend between entertainment and sports.

Once upon a time, referring to baseball as mentioning America, or at least American sports. But this subject has gradually lost that image, although still popular.
So far, Marilyn Monroe is still a symbol of beauty and charm in the United States. Whoever conquered the heart of Monroe? A baseball player. Glorious past The US sports market is huge and each sport has its own appeal, a unique golden age. Baseball was the same way, in the early twentieth century. The Guardian newspaper (UK) last week revisited the history of baseball, and found that in the period just turned to the twentieth century, baseball was famous enough to be considered as the main sport of Americans. These players play this game, so almost “famous as the way an athlete simply could not be more famous”. In the 1920s, baseball fans could swim for hundreds of miles just to see a flesh-and-blood Babe Ruth. The New York Daily News hired a journalist just to write about … Ruth, and only Ruth, for 365 days a year.
The stars of this baton and running club, for example, Ruth, became an idol not only as an athlete, but almost “canonized”. And the World Series is even more so than the football World Cup. It is a congress. If today’s football superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo were to be paired with a great beauty, in the old days, Joe DiMaggio’s marriage to Marilyn Monroe was a testament to the position of baseball stars.
Worrying reality Sadly, baseball, after influencing factors throughout history, has declined in the image and is no longer occupying a unique position in American sports. Even if this year’s World Series kicked off with the participation of some of the most prestigious teams like the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros, it couldn’t change the fact that rugby – the NFL, was the traditional subject. valid for more than 10 years. A little bit of statistics can bring more or less optimism to baseball fans, as the tournament is still quite rich. Game 7 of the World Series taking place in 2016 is estimated to have 40.05 million followers. It was the pinnacle of baseball in the last 25 years, with an audience that is 70% higher than the 2014 World Series Game 7 final. Sales of the American Professional Baseball League (MLB) in 2016 reached about 10 billion USD, which has increased continuously for 14 years.
However, compared to the Super Bowl – now an iconic show that goes beyond rugby, the baseball audience is still inferior. The Super Bowl 2016 attracted 111.3 million views when the New England Patriots battled the Atlanta Falcons. Factors that make baseball anxious and rugby confident lie in the demographics. Baseball is thought to be pale in the eyes of young people, and without the participation of many African American communities at major tournaments. In other words, a number of immigration rules in the past have made baseball into a state of past, not diversified players, so it lost many audience members. The exact opposite of what happened with rugby or basketball today, which are sports that represent American solidarity regardless of their background. Steven Goldman, a baseball writer and historical researcher, asserts that immigrants have changed the face of America. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that baseball has” naturalized “for previous generations, taught them a lot about American customs.” But Mr. Goldman also thinks that factor has weakened today, and That’s why even though baseball is strong, its future in America is gray …
Baseball field size First, we have to talk about the size of the baseball field, not what the baseball field wants to design, but it must follow the baseball rules. Although, this sport has flexibility in the size of the pitch, as it depends on the form of play and the size of the game. But baseball rules still provide the most common size standard for baseball fields. It applies to both women’s baseball and men’s baseball in each major and small tournament and it is taken very seriously in the US.
The size of the baseball field is specified as follows, the baseball field must be a square, so that the four corners of the baseball field are very evenly arranged. For men’s baseball field, the length of each side of the court is 27.4 m. And that length drops to 18.2 m if it’s a women’s soccer field. The special thing is that surrounding this square yard will have an additional rotor shape, with the size up to 99 m on both sides and their two limited ends are connected by an arc, with a large radius. about 122 m. In professional baseball leagues, these numbers will often be used as an accurate index to build a qualified baseball field.
Tools while playing baseball
If football is a sport with an extremely simple tooling, just a uniform and a ball can be played. However, in baseball is different, baseball uses more tools such as baseball, gloves to play balls, bats. Therefore, it is also necessary to have the rules of baseball equipment in the rules of baseball to ensure fairness, as well as the attraction of this sport.
For baseball technology, there will be regulations on the materials that make them from mainly wood and wood. A standard club is usually made of those two materials and the length of the stick will range from 0.7 m to 1m. For best performance, the club must not weigh more than one pound. The shape of the club will gradually grow from the handle to the head of the club where the ball is in contact. At the widest part of the club, the diameter should not be larger than 5 cm, for those who want to adjust the handle for better friction, some small details can be used. As long as it doesn’t affect the weight and length of the baseball bat. Next is the baseball, which will weigh about 0.15 kg and this ball has a diameter of about 6.8 cm diameter. The ball is round, the outside is covered with leather or some rubber material. The inside is definitely rubber, for big or professional matches, the quality of a baseball will be thoroughly tested. In essence, the new standard baseball helps athletes compete well and fairly. The match was thus more favorable.
