REMEMBER... "Winning is for a day, Sportsmanship is for a Lifetime"
The Star Spangled Banner by Sequenced By Gary Wachtel
All you high school ball players had not yet started grade school when this "Bunch of Nobodies" USA Olympic baseball team PREPARED and won the 2000 Olympic Gold medal in Sydney Australia.
I trust that all baseball fans everywhere, in every country, hope that the International Olympic Committee, one day soon, reinstates baseball as an Olympic sport. Baseball has stood the test of time in our country, so I have a feeling if the Olympic Committee brings our sport back; they will come.
GO USA! Click on the Photo to see how the USA team won GOLD. This is a 20 min. video taking you through the inspirational sotry of the team. View when you have time, it's worth the time to see this bit of baseball history.

Of course many may know the name Ben Sheets who pitched that gem of a game, a 4-0 shutout over Cuba in the Gold Medal game. However, many may not have heard much about Mike Neill, the USA left fielder who made a web gem catch for the final out for the Gold..., and who also hit a home run to get things going in the Gold Medal game v. Cuba. Mike was 30 years old in 2000 and at the end of his baseball career after winning a MLB AAA World Series the year before.
