Marc Rovner is an accomplished attorney, who has received the Client Champion Silver Distinction from Martindale-Hubbell as well as the Client Distinction Award from Lawyers.com and Martindale.com. His responsibilities include the role of senior staff attorney at BETA Abstract, LLC. An Avid New York Giants fan, Marc Rovner loves traveling outside his hometown of East Rockaway and enjoys seafood and sushi.

A Japanese dish, sushi consists of cold rice to which vinegar has been added and that is garnished with seafood, vegetables, or other ingredients. As rice is the central component of sushi, proper preparation is essential. It should be fluffy but firm. Moreover, the right variety of rice should be used to achieve the proper texture.

Traditionally, a Japanese short-grain white rice has been the ideal choice for sushi. Varieties of this kind include Uruchimai, a sticky rice that is ideal for chopsticks, and Mochigome, whose high gluten content gives it a chewy texture. Developed in 1948, Calrose rice is grown in California and is used to cook Japanese meals in North America. However, strictly speaking, it is not a Japanese rice. Calrose includes the Kokuho Rose and Nishiki varieties, which are known for their good flavor and texture.

With a juris doctor from Boston University, attorney Marc Rovner resides in East Rockaway, New York, and manages business development for BETA Abstract LLC and its five offices in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. Beyond his responsibilities as an attorney, Marc Rovner is a passionate fan of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) New York Mets.

The New York Mets traded Jay Bruce to the Cleveland Indians in August 2017, but the team decided to bring back the veteran outfielder by signing him to a three-year, $39 million contract on January 11, 2018. Bruce first joined the Mets in August 2016 after spending the first nine seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Reds. He hit 37 home runs, drove in 94 runs, and recorded a .245 batting average in 153 games with New York. The Indians won 42 of 51 games after acquiring Bruce, who hit seven home runs and drove in 26 runs.

Although he has predominantly played right field throughout his career, the 30 year old is expected to spend some time at first base for the Mets as the team allows Dominic Smith to establish himself as an everyday player in the outfield. A first-round pick in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft, Bruce is a three-time MLB All-Star who has 277 home runs and a .249 batting average in 1,416 career games.

The Early History of Baseball

Marc Rovner, a title insurance attorney with more than 29 years of legal experience, oversees the entire legal department of BETA Abstract, LLC, as senior staff attorney and director of business development. An avid sports fan, Marc Rovner of East Rockaway, New York, enjoys playing baseball and has been part of a men’s baseball team since 1993.

Many historians agree the game of baseball evolved from rounders, a British game that involved two teams who ran safely to a base after hitting a ball with a bat. Early documentation of the game has been found during the late 1700s and early 1800s. During these early stages of the sport, small towns formed teams while large cities created baseball clubs.

Alexander Cartwright, the father of baseball, created the first official rules for the sport in 1845. These rules, written for Cartwright’s New York baseball club, the Knickerbockers, have largely remained the same over the years.

By 1846, the first recorded baseball game occurred. This game pitted the Knickerbockers against another New York baseball club. Although the Knickerbockers lost, this event began the growth of amateur baseball. Eventually, 25 amateur teams got together to discuss the rules of competitive games and they formed the National Association of Baseball Players, the first organized baseball league, in 1857.

Although the number of baseball clubs dropped during the Civil War, the sport remained a popular hobby among Union soldiers and rapidly picked up speed once the war was over. In 1868, more than 100 baseball clubs had been formed and started charging admission to their games on a regular basis.

In 1869, the first professional baseball team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, was formed and paid players quickly became the norm within the sport.
