James Earl Jones playing the character of Terence Mann in the film Field of Dreams says, “The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.” Sports has been and continues to be a great teaching element for people from many walks of life involving issues that include; gender & racial issues, proper planning of finances, family life, friendships, working together, and having a dream. This class will also incorporate ways to sharpen your academic skills, enhance awareness of ethical issues that exist during college life, and help you make a successful transition to university life here at MU.
