While I was with Lynwood Baptist Church for their missions conference, Pastor Steve Carpenter took the missionaries to Copperstown, NY where the Baseball Hall of Fame is located. It was very interesting to see how baseball came about. I learned a lot about baseball that I never knew. They had all the plaques of the different men that were members of the Hall of Fame. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that several of these men served our country in time of war. Some of them were involved in World War I and II and other wars that our country had a part in. One man was even involved in the Civil war. I appreciate men that have character and put importance in things that have more value than a bat and a ball, our country.
