I am so excited for the baseball game that I am going to tonight. My favorite team, the Kansas City Royals, are playing in the World Series against the New York Mets. The Royals won the first game of the series in a thrilling, 14 inning game. My dad went to the game, but didn’t get to go to that game. Unfortunately, I am at school right now so I didn’t get to skip school because of the game. My dad is going to pick me up at school at 2:00 for the 7:00 pm game so we can go out and tailgate and play around with the baseball and football that we are taking to the game. My dad is grilling hamburgers and hot dogs, and I am definitely going to have a hot dog with cheese melted on it and wrapped in bacon. School so far has gone by so slowly. I received to school at 7:30 and it is 10:00 am right now, but it has felt like a whole day has gone by. I am in reading right now and I am super bored. We are learning about the six signposts while reading the book Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen. I have just finished chapter 13, which is also …show more content…
Once we got to the game, my grandparents had already set up the big, white tent with KC Royals in painted in blue at the top. That lifted my spirits a little bit, knowing that my family might have the coolest tent of them all. After dinner, my family headed into the stadium. The Royals stadium, in my opinion, is the best stadium of all of the major league stadiums. Once we get to our seats, I immediately realize that our seats aren’t that bad. They are in the second row of the top deck but I can see everything. My brother really wants to go out to the outfield because that is where all of the fun activities are, so he and my other brother go out to the outfield with my mom and my grandma. Meanwhile, I stay at the seats with my dad and grandpa because I do not want to miss any of the great
At the conclusion of a postseason that saw more home runs than ever before, a few upsets and fanatical fan bases, an unbelievable World Series came to an end on Wednesday. The high number of postseason home runs kept leaving parks in a Series packed with crazy comebacks, high and low scoring games, stolen bases for tacos and even a marriage proposal. With all that wackiness, did this year’s World Series featuring the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers somehow surpass the drama from last year’s World Series between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs? Some fans and pundits speculated that Game 2 of the Dodgers-Astros series was the greatest World Series game of all time with six combined home runs coming after the ninth inning of Houston’s
Leonardo Muro-Garcia Professor Benjamin Dally English 5 (Section 2) October 23rd, 2015 Sacramento High School Baseball Baseball History: The first organized game was played in Hoboken, New Jersey, on June 19, 1846. The Knickerbockers faced a team called the New York Nines, who won the game 23 to 1.The baseball we play today still follows many of the rules Cartwright thought up in 1845. (Creative Classroom April/May 1990) According to Erik Borg, a “discourse community” is a community where the “members actively share goals and communicate with other members to pursue those goals” (398).
Take Me Out to the Ball Game In the state of Georgia, there are thousands of baseball fans that enjoy the fresh air of the open field and the taste of salty peanuts. “Take me out to the ballgame” might become a simpler task in the near future for Braves fans that live in the Cobb County area. One of the biggest things that I think of when I hear baseball is the huge stadium, filled with thousands of people. More importantly I think of Turner Field, the Brave’s current stadium located in Atlanta.
Baseball Narrative Rough Draft I was so nervous for this morning’s competition. Today was the day that I had the chance to show to a judge what I had to offer into the heat of the KMEA Piano Kansas State Competition. The songs that I had practiced over from June to October were mere children’s play compared to others in the group who played pieces like Claire de Lune and the 12 Variations of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (no one in middle school with common sense would choose repertoire made for high schoolers). “Melody, make sure you go over the spots in your songs that you need to work on”, Mom said, shattering my thought process.
With the herbaceous smell of freshly cut grass and the salty taste of sunflower seeds, a baseball field strikes me as a place where I feel perfectly content. The wonderful home of the sport I have loved as long as I can remember brings a sense of calmness. Baseball fields remind me of great memories, give me a strong sense of confidence, and cause me to strive for a greater future. Baseball has given me a wide range of outstanding memories. The day I was first asked to play travel baseball changed who I am as a person.

The batter starts his swing and crushes the ball. The ball takes off like a rocket and the crowd goes nuts. It clears the mammoth fence by countless feet, and the home team has won. After all the smells, sights, tastes, sounds, and emotions that fans felt throughout the baseball game one has just attended, one major thing sticks out.
The second field the Yankees played on was named Hilltop Park based off the Yankee name at the time the Highlanders. The field was also named Hilltop park because it was located in Washington heights which was the hilltop of Manhattan. The address of the field was 168th Street and Broadway, Manhattan. The stadium had a capacity of 16,000 people plus room for 15,000 more people if they would stand. The dimensions of the field were massive, left field ranged at 365 feet, center field ranged to 542 feet, and right field ranged up to 400 feet.
I started my journey to the plate. I looked at my first base coach Timmy for reassurance. He must have sensed my nervousness because he smiled and gave me a reassuring nod. I turned my gaze back to the batter's box and jogged the rest of the way. After what seemed like an eternity i finally reached
Everyone 's at least broken a bone or injured themselves before right? Well this is one of those tragic stories where I unfortunately injured myself. It all started way back in the 5th grade and all my friends and family know I love & play the game of baseball. The baseball season for the little league I play for is about to begin in about 1-2 weeks.
Then next thing I know is there is two people in front of me before I am up to bat. So I get in my bag to get my batting gloves, helmet, and everything else I needed to go hit. I stand towards the front of the dugout till it is my turn to take some practice swings in the on-deck circle. The batter that was up got walked and now it was my time to do my pre-hit routine in the batters box. I took three swings, then stretch, then talked to people in the crowd to not sike myself out before
First home run Crack! The ball flew off the bat and went as high as a bird in the sky. Aaron is a young 11 year old boy who loves playing baseball whenever he can. Every Time that he would step up to the plate he was always swing for the fence and dreamed about hitting the ball over and seeing all the fans cheer as he rounded the bases. All of times Aaron had played he never had home run but was always close sometimes hitting the wall just short of the ball going over it: but today that was about to change.
