12-Sentence Paragraph #2

Sports in 1920s.
Luke Starks's insight:

My topic both effected, and changed society. It effected society because the economy turned from an agrarian to an industrial society. The 1920s was a great social change with new prosperity and new ideas. Sports gave interest to not only to adults but also to children. Seeing sports gave children something positive to look at other then being worried about the war everyone just got over. Sports influenced Rube Foster to create the first baseball Negro League team. The team had earned respect from some whites but still they were treated unfairly. It's the thought and respect they earned that counts. Since the Golden Age of Sports came about in the 1920s sports has became very popular. It has influenced people to take it seriously and very interesting. Letting all races be on the same team. Since 1920 sports, became popular, like an important event. It's involved in everyday life weathers its basketball one season, baseball, tennis, and boxing another.

Primary Document #3

Luke Starks's insight:

This primary document is about Babe Ruth’s farewell speech. He changed the game of baseball today. Everybody appreciates his years in the league and what he’s accomplished. The Yankee’s organization has done a lot for Ruth so he gives a speech to show respect. In his speech, he talks about wanting to be a baseball player since a young age and if you work hard at it, you can become it. He thanks everybody for standing by him throughout his incredible career. He also wished everyone else well in his poor health.

Primary Document #1

This document is basically talking about baseball's growing popularity in the 1920s. It also talks about Babe Ruth's rise to stardom. He broke the record for Home Run's in a season. It says that  Yankee management built a new stadium to accommodate Babe Ruth. I think he appreciated that a lot. It was a big accomplishment for Ruth. He had to mean a lot to people to build a stadium after him.

12-Sentence Paragraph #1

Sports in the 1920s
Luke Starks's insight:

There are various sports that were being played in the 1920s. There was football, tennis, basketball, baseball, boxing, and others. The main sports that people watched were baseball, boxing, and tennis. Tennis became more popular as the years go because of one championship match in which Vincent Richards won. Richards wasn't expected to win but he pulled off the victory. At the time, baseball and boxing were the main sports. Babe Ruth changed the game of baseball. He made it to what it is now, today. Dempsey and Carpentier didn't change the boxing world; they just caught a lot of people's eyes and brung a lot of attention. Media was all over the "Battle of the Century." The reason behind that was they were the two best fighters in that era. After all these events, sports kept evolving but they wouldn't have if it wasn't for the 1920s.
