What baseball can teach us about life

The second half of the 2019 baseball season starts today. Between now and late September, the regular season will feature over 1,000 games.

One ting I love about baseball is that no matter how good or bad today’s game went, tomorrow is a new day.

In baseball, you can get absolutely trounced one day. Pitching can be terrible, hitting can be terrible, you can lose by 15 runs. Just a disaster of a game. But no matter how badly you might lose today, tomorrow is a new day and a new game.

Conversely, no matter how much you dominate today, you could hit 4 home runs, pitch a no hitter, have a walk off home run, everything can be clicking, but tomorrow is still a new day and you need to do it again. You can’t just rest on yesterday.

It became a story last week that Karen Pence, the wife of vice president Mike Pence is teaching art classes at a private school in Virginia that holds to Biblical values and expects students and staff to abide by a code of conduct which comports with Biblical teachings. This has drawn criticism because Immanuel Christian School, where Pence teaches, has a policy banning LGBT expressions or relationships.
