Dane Kutnick is in right field , Tanner Smith at first, and Jason VanDenLangenberg is catching. We have played 3 tournaments together, but we already looked like we have been playing together for a long time. We may not have known it yet, but they were going to turn one of the best plays of the year. We are going into the bottom of the 6th inning. The first pitch crack of the ball off the bat a triple.

"It's a beautiful day for baseball!" I shouted in the parking lot of the 5/3 Ballpark. My family and I were walking down the gigantic parking lot, with red square tiles, to get to the ballgame. We had a little under an hour and were truly in no rush. We could see the gates that led to the ballpark and I was extremely excited for the upcoming baseball game.
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.
Since 1926 the Cardinals have won eleven World Series, and they make the playoffs just about every year. The last time the Cubs have won a World Series was 1908, they only won it twice, and there are many theories on why the Cubs have not won it since like the Billy goat curse. Another difference is the teams mascots. The Cardinals mascot is a cardinal named Fredbird which was introduced on April 6, 1979. The Cardinals have a second mascot called the rally squirrel, which showed up in the middle of a postseason game which the cardinals were losing, and after that they won the game, and went on to win the World Series.
After allowing two hits and one walk in the seventh inning, with one out, Austin Glorious (St. Thomas) relieved him out of the bullpen. The first batter walked to score the tying run, before Glorious uncorked a wild pitch, which allowed the second run to come in. The River Rats tallied one run in the top of the eighth to saddle Hardy with the loss.
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. Especially with the weather being as bad as it was with rain, which is a baseball player’s worst nightmare while playing. He needed to take other precautions while pitching. New York moved only 6 games back of the Wild Card leader and DiPolo’s E.R.A was reduced to a 4.06. With this win it gave the Mets players a positive look for winning the series after what they had accomplished in this game and taking a 1-0 series lead even though it is just the regular season.
We all thought this was going to be an easy win from hear. “We easily got this” Dylan shouted at me over from first base “I know we just gotta get three outs” I hollered back The first pitch was a strike right up the middle no chance for me or derek to get to, on the very next pitch the runner stole second base. “Lets bounce back boys” Coach yelled from the bench. “Ya guys were good” Derek
Baseball loved Jeter, especially how he played. Even if the Yankees lost, Jeter would win at something. Baseball wanted Jeter to play forever no matter what happened. Baseball gave him money, fans, and more friends to try and get him to stay. Eventually Jeter was getting old and got hurt.
