Cole, who also loves baseball, decided to go with me. After the camp our families started hanging out a lot and became really good friends. Cole is my best friend. We do everything together. But before the camp we barely hung out at all.
Crack! It’s going, It’s going, gone a homerun! These are the sounds that fans look forward to hearing at any Major League Baseball game they attend, but I’ve always wondered who came up with the idea for the sport. The “invention” of baseball is huge for everyone that loves to play and watch this sport. The first baseball game was a hit, even though no one really knew what it was.
Recently, I experienced the most important moment in my baseball career to date on one sunny weekend at a baseball field in Cartersville, just northwest of Atlanta. On that sunny day in Cartersville, there were baseball scouts as far as the eye could see. Any team you could put your mind to was pretty much there in attendance. I remember this day perfectly because I had recently talked to Georgia Tech’s assistant coach about coming to watch me play at this game.
The Day Moose Came to Town Erin Falls was never a sports town. We had baseball in the summer and an outdoor skating rink in winter; summers were hot and winters were cold. In 1912, Pumpkin Patch Park arose from a vacant lot at the north end of town. A makeshift baseball diamond first appeared in 1920 out of the dusty field that hadn’t seen moisture in decades. After gallons of water, bundles of fertilizer, and umpteen bags of grass seeds, it was transformed into a playable baseball field.
Baseball is a game I have been playing since the age of eight. Since then, I have been a phenomenal hitter. I was a right-handed hitter when I started playing baseball, and I was the best hitter in my age group. I always hit home runs when it was my turn to bat. The coaches who picked the teams argued about who would get the first pick because they all wanted to pick me first.
Each year, Americans spend about eleven billion dollars just on fantasy football (“By the Numbers”). Considering that this is a large sum of money, it is obvious that Americans adore this game. Fantasy football has been played in the USA for a very long time, and is now an essential part of this society. It has been used for entertainment and for competition for many years, without any complications. However, after daily fantasy football was introduced, which introduced weekly winnings of over one million dollars, fantasy football became less of a friendly competition.
Baseball, America’s favorite pastime, is a sport in which so many kids dream of growing up and playing under the lights like their favorite baseball heroes. They dream of playing at Yankee Stadium alongside legends such as Derek Jeter as the crowd of fifty thousand spectators chant their name. The dream that sprouts from the first tee ball game all the way through little league and high school. Baseball to me wasn 't just a game, it was life. It was a life full of ups and downs, joy and disappointment.
While playing for a fall league team, a coach from a travel team took notice in me, and he asked me to join his team. Little did I know, my acceptance of the offer shaped who I am now by giving me all kinds of character traits such as teamwork and responsibility. Another memorable event was my first home run. I remember that day as if it were yesterday, and my first home run will always be one of my happiest memories. When I spend time at

Baseball is one of the most defining qualities about our country, it is the embodiment of who we are. Gerald Early, an American culture critic, once said, “There are only three things that America will be remembered for 2000 years from now when they study this civilization: The Constitution, Jazz music, and Baseball. These are the 3 most beautiful things this culture's ever created.” This quote is not just an accurate prediction, but could be said to be true know. All three: the constitution, jazz, and baseball are talked about now by historians.
Baseball is different than any other sport ever played. Baseball does not have a play clock that controls how the sport is played. The play clock only controls the pace of the game not when the game stops or continues. Baseball is the only sport where the defense controls the ball. Baseball, unlike other sports, substantially depends on the strategy of the coach and the players.
I the NFL there is 5 African American coaches out of thirty two teams. There are only seven black NBA coaches out of thirty teams. In Major League Baseball there are no black coaches/managers. Years ago there was one black manager/coach in MLB that won a championship that was back in the 70’s. In the NBA the teams are quicker to hire a white coach with no experience over a black coach with experience.
