Baseball and sports in general give the people who play it a niche in life. Right now baseball is my niche and that I need to keep playing at all cost. It won’t come until baseball has opened up new doors of opportunity then I will leave the ball player lifestyle. It has given me and many more a reason to strive for greatness and succeed. I don’t think I have the grades I do now if baseball wasn’t here.
It’s One or The Other When I was 4, I started to play soccer. I was very young to start, but that didn’t faze me. I’d go around kicking and screaming with joy. After a while of playing that sport, I became interested in playing softball because I would watch my big brother play; I have always looked up to him. As I became more interested in both of the sports, I would always want to play, didn’t matter what time of day, the weather conditions, whether or not I had anybody to play with.
“You better be ready to take an L! I am going to make sure you lose all your hope of trying to stand up to me or anything like that,” said Zachary. I was trying to think of a comeback to his warning, but luckily I didn’t have to because I was saved by the teacher. He called my name to make sure I understood I was kicking third. I ignored Zach’s warning and walked past him to get in line for the game
When we are just standing on the sidelines and yelling you might not consider that a sport, but when we are tumbling or stunting it definitly is. Cheerleaders put a lot of hardwork and dedicaton into it. I think if all the boys quit football to cheer they would call it a sport then. I do think that it's true because they are always praising over boys. We do alot of tumbling as you know, the oympics decarled it a sport, it shows life values, and it might possibly be in the games in a few years.
The car ride home after the practice was horrible, I was a mess. I told my mom, “ I’m horrible at this game, I get so close everytime and I just can’t hit a ball over the fence.” She replied with the, Field of Dreams, quote “Build it and they will come.” What she was meaning by that was keep working and doing what I’m doing right now and I’ll
However, as I stepped off the field I had only soccer on my mind. What started off as a way to impress my father, turned into a voracious desire to play soccer. Day after day I stepped on the field and gave everything I had. It showed too. I exponentially grew in ability and before long my father organized a tryout for the Houston Dynamo academy, the most competitive and exacting soccer team in the
Many people think it is a hobby for me but it’s actually not it is a passion that I enjoying investing my life in. To begin with, soccer for me isn’t just a sport or a hobby, it’s a career! I have a passion for soccer and I plan to make a career out of it because I have invested ten of my years to soccer. Everyone around me from friends to family members think that I will not achieve that goal due to the fact that they say I don’t always finish what I start. My mother has been getting on to me because I spend most of the day in soccer field but truth be told she should appreciate that I’m not getting in any kinds of trouble with the law or messing with the wrong crowd.
As I stepped out of the car door to head onto the field I could smell the freshly mowed grass and hear the birds chirp. It was a big day for me because I was about to try out for my first softball team. As I walked on the field there were other softball athletes throwing very strong to each other and that made me get nervous. Once I got my glove in my hand and started to throw I felt that I was throwing very well. The coaches Softball made me realize that you have to have leadership skills and
As a young tyke, I was much more extroverted and outgoing, compared my current social relationships, and this excitement lead to my upcoming passion for baseball. During the summer of 2009, I had just reached my 9th birthday and my best friend Nicholas and I decided to join a baseball team. Joining the baseball team was a way for both of us to get together more often to hang out and explore the world together. So as a young child who was still experiencing the world, joining sports was an entertaining way to experience what the world had to offer. Baseball was just a part of the beginning.
Many of the seniors had egos, full of themselves in every aspect possible. It was a rude awakening to the reality of high school to be apart of this team as a freshman. In retrospect, I believe that my transition into high school would have been smoother if I would’ve asked to be on the Junior varsity. Although this would have hindered my growth as a player, it’s a sacrifice I realize now that would have been worth it. The commencement of this harassment came during the start of school at lunch, a couple weeks
