Baseball is back and America can always use baseball. In a world where politicians and the mainstream media thrive on trying to divide, sports can sometimes give us a more accurate portrayal of what life is really like. And sports can show us that, hey, things really aren’t so bad.
An example of that came during the Braves’ 8-1 win over the Phillies in Atlanta on Friday, when the Braves’ Freddie Freeman hit a home run. The ball was retrieved by father and son wearing Phillies gear — shortly after the young man couldn’t hang on to the ball (see video below), and shared a laugh with his dad. Once the ball was finally corralled, it was tossed to a kid wearing a Freeman jersey.
It was just a small sample of, hey, life isn’t usually what the media wants you to believe. Not everyone is at odds (most people aren’t), not everyone judges everyone based on what team they root for, and not everyone has to be enemies based on the silly boxes the media and politicians try to put us in, usually for the purpose of clicks and votes.
Baseball, and sports, are at their best when they provide us a glimpse of what is actually true.

Truly heartwarming and the commentary by the announcers was terrific.
Thats great people right there great dad who is raising his son right that really is the real America big props to pops
Jeff Francoeur, Chip Caray and Tom Glavine, some of the best in the business. Great moment, but remember, we’re supposed to be divided. Maybe Rob Womanfred should take note.
That’s a really good moment.
That dad is beyond awesome 🙂
Where are the father and sons masks???? Lol jk. That’s great stuff. The world isn’t all doom and gloom although the media wants us to believe that. Truly are the enemy of the people.
