Considered Americaís greatest pastime, the sport of baseball symbolizes legacy and excellence in both the past and present. This generationís fans will know players such as Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols, Tim Lincecum, and Roy Halladay. They will also know about the heated competition in every division. The AL East is arguably the most talented division in baseball, containing powerhouses in the Yankees and Red Sox and rising teams such as the Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, and the Toronto Blue Jays. But power struggles will likely exist in every division, and the postseason battle will likely go down to the wire. The AL Central and the AL West will showcase the star-studded Detriot Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, and the Texas Rangers, who will all be fighting for the division title as well as a wild cart spot.
Switching over to the NL, the St. Louis Cardinals seek a World Series repeat, but will receive much opposition from the Philadelphia Phillies, the L.A Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants, and the Atlanta Braves. And 2012 could be the end of the Chicago Cubs' curse that has plagued the franchise for more than 100 years. Every team has something to play for, whether itís aspirations for the postseason and eventually being world champions of baseball or showcasing young talented stars who will make their teams competitive in a matter of just a few years.
Baseball fans will also acknowledge the grand history of the sport, led by historic icons such as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Hank Aaron. These players were the leaders of their generations, and no one can doubt their impact and contributions to the sports world. Gameday Goods is here to help all fans celebrate their favorite team or player by offering great MLB gift and gifts as well as baseball memorabilia of both present and past.
