Baseball Is Back.
I repeat, baseball is back.
In the past three years, we’ve dealt with a substantial amount of perseverance. Since 2020, the weight of a simple saying, “Baseball is back,” has intensified and has held new weight to our everchanging society, continuously challenging our love for the game. As the world healed, the players returned. As the players returned, so did their voices for a better path for themselves and those who would come after them.
This isn’t the first time I’ve written this headline. But, today, it is a headline that dismantles the tension that was built on December 2, 2021, when Major League Baseball instituted a lockout.
As the rising sun made its way towards its peak on Thursday, March 10, 2022, the once somber atmosphere that cast the game finally found its glimmer through the darkness. Word had traveled that an agreement would soon ensue between MLB and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), and an explosive commotion of excitement and joy radiated through the baseball world from both sides of the table and from fans of America’s pastime.
Baseball is indeed back.
The players, who stood firm and poignantly until their voices were implemented onto paper, showed out in waves via social media to express their thoughts and feelings of their beloved game returning to action with a full season of 162 games expected to be played into the month of October.
Here are some of the things your favorite players posted on social media via Twitter and Instagram, displaying their excitement for the 2022 MLB season:
The Future Shines Brightly
Lourdes Gurriel Jr. posted a picture of him and his Blue Jays teammates, Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Teoscar Hernández. The young core already reigns the reputation of being the fiercest group of talent in baseball. Despite the 2021 Blue Jays narrowly missing the 2021 postseason — even as they notched 91 wins on the season — all will keep a watchful eye on the birds, who have the potential to swoop in and build a comfortable nest on top of the American League East Division. Gurriel Jr. and the Blue Jays are expected to fly high in 2022 as the core develops their infectious chemistry with hopes of it manifesting a playoff-contending team.
Looking For A New Home
Carlos Correa and Nick Castellanos aren’t the only Latino All-Star looking for a place to chase championships. Johnny Cueto hopes to make a splash in the coming days, as the 36-year-old free agent looks to join a ball club for his 15th season in the majors. The two-time All-Star went 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA in 2021 with the San Francisco Giants. Cueto has a 135-97 record, 3.45 ERA, 1710 strikeouts in 330 career games.
