Baseball and politics

When I turned on the TV to watch the Yankees highlights on Sunday night, I found the LIVE newscast of President Obama announcing the death of Osama bin Laden.

It was a surreal moment – with many emotions of 9/11 flooding back. What was a time of quiet reflection for me became a grand celebration for many others.

I have mixed emotions about those revellers. The “celebrations” that I do applaud are the free ticket giveaways that MLB and MiLB have initiated for military personnel. Yes indeed, U – S – A !

What is the responsibility of baseball and the entire sports world in times of global crises or “big” news?
