It had been a long day at the softball field and everyone on my team was exhausted. We had won every game that we had played that day. We had made it to the championship and we're ready to win. I was the pitcher so I had an important duty, to pitch as best as I could. I gave it my all and pitched like there was no tomorrow.
For a young baseball player one of the highest goals to achieve is hitting a homerun -for me that was all I wanted. I already achieved most of what I wanted in baseball, and one of my proudest was a no-hitter, but it was no home run. When I first realized how bad I wanted this feat was one night after a practice where all we did was just hit. The majority of my teammates hit at least one homerun that practice, but me I hit the fence but never was able to send one over. The car ride home after the practice was horrible, I was a mess.
Pierzynski vs. Michael Barrett, 2006 After a fly ball out, White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski tagged up and tried to score from third base. Pierzynski bowled over Cubs catcher Mike Barrett on his way to the plate and emphatically slapped home to score. Pierzynski’s theatrics didn’t sit well with Barrett, who upon getting up from the collision, grabbed Pierzynski and punched him in the face. The benches cleared as a result, and four players, including Barrett and Pierzynski, were ejected from the game.

If there is one thing I hate it has to be losing. With that thought pumping threw my brain, it drove me to train harder than I have ever before. Every day and night I did, 1000 push-ups for more power. After my morning push-ups, I would go outside to a fence post with a tire tied around it and practice my bat speed and batting footwork. Sometimes when my dad comes home on time I can go to the batting cages ,and work on my soon to be perfect swing.
Texas baseball can be very exciting, especially as a high school junior fighting for a starting spot. Working on getting in shape, mastering the basics of the game, and then making it routine. It all felt so right, as if I was destined to have a good year, except my future beheld failure. It was this failure that would make me a better player in the near future. I believed that I worked hard; giving multiple hours a day to the game I love.
I am a pitcher, 2nd baseman, 3rd baseman, outfielder, and also a short stop. I am a catcher that never catches because; I hate the dirt flying up in my face. Next thing I know, the ball came straight at me then… WHAM it hit me, “ouch!” I yelped. I am playing third base, and then the ball got hit hard off the bat and came right towards me. I got hit on my arm, it was right below the inside of my right elbow and it hurt really badly.

This was indeed a sweet one for both of them. They even took a selfie of their own as well. Another sweet moment that they had inside the baseball arena is that Ashton holds Mila's hands at the back. As you can see, Mila wears the #1 Kutcher jersey, while Ashton wears the #2 jersey. Even though that they've tried their best to cheer for them, the Los Angeles Dodgers were beaten by the visitors, 10-2.
“The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.” Babe Ruth was always into trouble as a young kid before he became a baseball player. Jackie Robinson learned that the color of people does not matter. Struggling with offense, Ozzie Smith hit a walk off homerun in the World Series to win the game. To accomplish incredible goals one must face fear. Babe Ruth was referred to as the greatest baseball player of all time.
I had him throw a couple more fastballs just so that the batter would think that’s our last route. Then I called the change up. The batter had been so far in front of it it was really funny. The tying run was up to bat. The first pitch he had hit the ball far into right field.
With two outs, Luken Baker singled through the left side, knocking in Cam Warner. WVU responded in the bottom half on Darius Hill’s single to left-center drove home Jackson Cramer Evan Skoug 's solo shot to left center pulled TCU within two.

A wild pitch made it a one run game and Ryan McDonald issued a two-run double to Connor Wanhannen to give TCU a 7-6 lead.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--A game that started as a pitcher 's duel turned ugly for the West Virginia University baseball team in the latter innings as Furman defeated the Mountaineers in in the series-opener on Friday evening at Monongalia County Ballpark. Junior Chad Donato (1-3) was cruising during the first fine innings before things got shaky in the sixth. Matt Towarnicky 's one-out base hit into right field started the six hit, five run barrage. Carter Grote doubled and Sims Griffith was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Cameron Whitehead 's RBI single gave the Paladins (12-17) a 1-0 lead.
After leaving one runner on second in the previous inning, the eighth looked as if the Boom would at least tie, if not take the lead. Daniel Sweet (Dallas Baptist), Michael Gizzi (State College of Florida) and Matt Gandy (Creighton) worked consecutive base-on-balls to load the bases with no one out. Sanford made a pitching change, with Cody Henry (Alabama) coming to the plate. He lined a frozen rope over a ducking Gizzi, right at the short stop, who beat Gizzi back to the second base bag, for the double play. Sweet scampered home, as the first pitch of Garrett Wolforth’s (Dallas Baptist) at-bat, got away from the catcher.
On July 16th, 1996 The New York Mets roughed up the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 7 to 5. One player who contributed to this win was a rookie by the name of Paul Wilson, who just came off six weeks of rest for his right shoulder. Although it was the return of Paul Wilson, there was another Met that over shadowed Wilson, and this guy was Jerry DiPolo. Mr. DiPolo came into the game during the fifth inning with runners on second and third and no outs. Outstandingly enough, he walked off that mound not conceding one run to the Phillies, which gave the crowd something to cheer about and he picked up the win, in just one inning that he pitched.
