    Let's get wild! Predicting baseball's sprint to the finish

    Here we are: one week to go. The division races are all wrapped up, with only a few bows left to be tied.

We also know that we owe that freedom to brave soldiers who have risked or given their lives to defend our country and way of life. The protest of 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has brought renewed attention to the ceremonial honoring of the country. How did the playing of the national anthem become associated with sporting events? Does it truly enhance our sense of unity and patriotism and honor our soldiers to play it before every collegiate and professional game of football, baseball, basketball, hockey and other sports--or should it be saved for special national
