It was a showdown, us against Minnetonka. Our team scarlet colored jerseys, and they wore their royal colored jerseys. I was pitching the championship game and I got plenty of run support early as we took a six to nothing lead. I pitched five shutout innings and gave the ball to Brandon Gill to get the last six outs. We lost our mojo a little bit when they scored four runs heading into the last inning.

Mickey still pursuing his dream, joined a local baseball club called The Whiz Kidz. In his first game with the Whiz Kidz Mickey hit 3 homeruns. To show his gratitude a fan started a collection for Mickey and his outstanding performance. Mickey accepted all $53, and was ecstatic it was the most money he’d ever seen. Unfortunately, the school also heard about his performance and about how he accepted the money, so the school said he couldn’t continue to play high school sports if he didn’t return the money.
Championship game day, the game started off good and we were really close, tied as a matter of fact until the bottom of the sixth it was the last inning we had to hold them to go to extra innings. One runner got walked the next got a hit so the first runner got to third then we got two outs. Then their best hitter comes up and it was a full count and he hits a single and they win. Now Briggs and I were very competitive, so we took it pretty hard.
Going Down in History I remember it like it was yesterday. The adrenaline rush, the anticipation, the sky-high nerves, and the undying support from our small Community. Softball, just like football is a very prided sport in Danville.

As is the case more often than not, the Panthers’ baseball team will consist of many underclassmen such as myself, and even more middle schoolers. Needless to say, we have a young team. As is also often the case, we will still to the best of our ability put in the work and effort necessary to succeed. Even
LeBron James, my modern Brutus. LeBron James was drafted first overall pick in 2003 by Cleveland, he went straight out of highschool, he was so happy and excited that he would be playing ball back at his home town of Cleveland. (Withers). He was drafted on June 26 at the theater in Madison square Garden (Withers). When he was drafted he had a lot of honor, he had stayed with them helping them win singled handedly for seven years.

On the Friday we moved in to Vail, at our hall meeting, our RA asked who wanted to do a flag football team. Most of us were interested and so our whole hall made a team. The games started in September and continued to October. They were almost every week. We did really well and won a lot more games than most of us thought we would.
Following a legion--The New Coach by Ned Linch “Tell us how you did it coach.” These words were forced into my face with a camera lens almost resting against my cheeks (page 395). The team did it along with some guidance from my assistant coach and the parents. I want to thank my assistant coach who is the baseball expert. He used to play in the minor leagues and the team loved him because of his dedication to their lives and his credibility at baseball.
Homewood-Flossmoor varsity baseball team won Friday's home non-conference game against Marian Catholic High School by a close score of 7-6. Varsity Head Coach Todd Sippel felt the team didn’t play to their full potential and not being able to work on the field during practices due to rain really impacted the game, but a win is always the best payback. “It wasn’t perfect, but we got a victory. I’m very happy with the victory. We played good enough to win,” Varsity Head Coach Todd Sippel said.
It was the middle of June and we are playing the second game of the World Series. We got here by doing well in the state tournament so all the teams are pretty good. Before anybody plays we all have a big party at the fields there were hotdogs and burgers and drinks. They had bounce houses and contests, then after an hour or so everybody exchanged team pins. We met all the other players from the other teams and just had fun.
Although many special events have happened lately the football game that was played against spring hill was of special events. That bright sunny day at Dierks High school it was homecoming day. As all the girls were dressed up in their elegant dresses blue jeans and t-shirts were what everyone else was wearing. The mums glitter and shined as they walked down the homecoming court their hair all in place.
