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.
After Jeter’s retirement, he announced he was going to launch a website called “The Players’ Tribune.”This site would be used as a place for fans to interact with their sports heroes. Derek Jeter could be argued as the best, or most inspirational player in baseball history. Jeter is a very good man, that has many fans. Derek always took being a New York Yankee with a lot of pride because that was always his dream. Jeter changed the game of baseball and he touched the hearts of many children with his foundations.
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. Mickey gave the money back, so he could continue playing high school.
The Astros did the same, as expected. 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. In 2008 it was my sophomore year of High School, which meant another year of softball. Another year of unforgettable memories with teammates.
In the second, third, fourth, and fifth, but in the sixth inning we got two runs. Then they got up to bat they had the bases loaded the game was tied up 3-3, 0 and 0 count 1 out. He hit the ball right over our first basemen. We ended up losing 3-4 but it was a fun
It was a rough ride to get the Most Valuable Player because he had to overcome obstacles of the color barrier. 1940 was when the MLB all change because that 's when the first African american came into the league, Jackie Robinson. Jackie was born on January 31st, 1914. When he came into the league everyone froze, they didn 't know what to do, Because they have never seen an African American again. Jackie hit 137 home runs, 4,887 at-bats, 3.1 batting average, 85 RBI, 29 stolen bases his MVP year and 125 runs scored.
Captained by the Clark brothers Matt and Cam, the Panthers look to improve on their weak record of last Spring (two, maybe three wins?) and compete in a high powered Mayflower League. 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.
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.
Unfortunately for the Twins he hit three home runs in the same game, and lead the yankees to a 9th inning comeback win. The twins had the lead the entire game but they ended up giving up four runs in the last inning and losing by a final score of 8-5. It was a bummer that the Twins had lost to the Yankees, but this was one of the more exciting games of the
