First of all : History of Florida:

Tallahassee, the federal capital, is a seminole word.

Many persons went to Florida beacause of the climate. The consequence is that today, there are very few people whose origin is floridian.

It is a multicultural state : people from Cuba, Central America, North or Ha´ti went.
In winter, there are "Birds Of Snow" : people from north USA flee north in winter to go to south, warmer.

Christopher Colombus discovered "Florida" in October, 12th of 1492 (then, it became the anniversary).

Indian population was slaughtered, which was the first population of this territory, 12,000 years ago.

Florida was twice its present size (then, warmness of Earth, so sea level rised).

In 1513, Ponce de Leon went to Florida to find Youth Fountain. That's him who gave Florida its name, as Florida is very much covered of flowers...

End of XIXth century : Reconstruction after Civil War.

Middle XXth century : Martin Luther King

Economy rised with forest products, sugar cane, harbors, phosphate, citruses, sponges... farms replaced plantations : eg. cigar firm in Tampa < Cuba; important breeding

>>developping : railroads, roads, luxury hotels, begining of the "Birds of Winter" phenomenon : developing educational system

XXth century : - everyone wants to buy in Florida(even if we don't know what is it!)
- thanks to cars and roads population goes to Florida for vacations
- draining marshes and digging canals allows more buildings
- houses price rises

After : - population rises (with more Ha´tians and Cubans)> diverse population
- air conditioning makes summer easier
- turistic installations
- NASA


Today : 4th rank population (in USA)
1st turistic destination in US
Florida known for its universities, colleges, sports teams, multicultural society and sun!

North Florida is for preppy people, center Florida for red-necks and south Florida for hispanians.

Problems in Florida : expensive insurances, natural catastrophes, surpopulation....

27,4 m between two bases.

2 teams of 9 players.

Only the striker team can score.

Defence one throw the ball :
The baseball bat is very diverse : weight, color, material...
The receiver is behind the batter.

A good ball is a ball thown between the batter's shoulders and knees. Once the ball struck, the batter runs to the first base. When the square isdone, the team scores one point.

A batter is eliminated if:
- he tries three times to strike the ball without manage to
- the struck ball is caught is the air
- he is touch between to bases by a defence player with the ball
- the ball arrive before him at the 4th base.

There are 9 innings per match (at least).
Visitors always begin the offensive. Home always wearing white (marked with team's colors).
Visitors in grey.

At the middle of the 7th inning, , people sing "Take me out of the ballgame":

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game.
