Why Lesson Planet?
Young scholars read an article about the inflammation in a pitcher's wrist from the Detriot Tigers. As a class, they discuss what the pitcher's decision should be if he was told if he played it would end his career. In groups, they make a list the various ways sports bring money to the community and a brainstorm how baseball might change in the future. To end the lesson plan, they discuss the importance of major league baseball in America.
