I feel very admirable when I make a good defensive play to help the team win. There is a saying in softball it’s that “however hard you work in practice is what is shown on game day”. When game day comes I know I’ll do just dandy if I did fine in
I failed to be a starter, and that was clear to me. It was everything I worked for, all the work felt like it was for nothing. Instead of giving up, I decided to use this to fuel me into becoming an even better player. It helped me with being better with my attitude, work ethic, habits, and self-motivation. I couldn’t let this make me sad, I had to stay mentally tough, keep a positive attitude, if I wanted to succeed.
Through this failure, however, athletics has taught me how to get up, move on, and learn from my mistakes. Hurdling has impacted me beyond the track, as I have learned that my life is like a race. Every obstacle that crosses my path has a lesson to teach and a way to overcome it. Losing my grandfather is undoubtedly the largest hurdle I have faced. After losing my childhood hero, I was left to figure out how to overcome the devastation that came over me and how to gather enough courage to move
I am lucky enough to be apart of such a great fraternity and support the ALS foundation to stop this terrible disease. Lou Gehrig came from nothing and turned his life around into something great. He put in the work and became good at whatever he did. He changed the game of baseball with his talents and set records that still stand to this day. Lou overcame childhood challenges, became one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and shed a light on a terrible disease are all examples on how Lou Gehrig is a true sports
Although I was just the manager, I bonded with the team. Everyone involved, including me, could not be failing a class or have less than a 2.0 gpa average in order to attend practices and games. This taught motivation to get school work done and do well in school. Also something that everyone learned was resilience. After tough losses, the team had to screw their heads on straight and work even harder than the previous week.
I was inspired by this story, and I promised myself that my practices will be of high quality and quantity. Several months later, I decided to audition for the Legion baseball team. My father and I wished to be certain I made the team, so we practiced harder and more often than before the school baseball tryouts. When the time came, I performed. The extra practice was effective; I was accepted to the team.
Nothing beats the smell of the spring air, the dirty pants, the laughs with teammates and the glory of winning. There are many things that I love about the game of baseball but there’s nothing that I cherish more than the memories made and the life lessons I’ve learned through the trials that I’ve faced. At a young age I played the game just like any other kid would. I went out to the ballpark, spit some sunflower seeds, made jokes with my
The theme in the short story, “The Marble Champ,” by Gary Soto was that hard work pays off in the end. I know this because, Lupe found a sport that she would love and be good at, so she worked very hard to achieve her goals. She worked/practiced day in and day out. And in the end, all of her hard work payed off. Have you ever felt like you had to give up at one point in time.
We lost our first game of the season. That game chanleged us all. Would continue to stare at the dirt or reach for the stars. We continued to strugle as team. It was my turn to take charge as a leader for this team, but I letting everything just go bye.
I magically picked up my sports shoes again, finally decided to continue my run. And when I finally went back to my team with Coach Chavez, I 'm even more determined that it 's indeed an unexpected luck for me to meet such an inspiring coach who led me to the eventual realization about myself, how I was encircled and almost suffocated by my narrow ego which I looked upon as wisdom. With her, I recognized that in the running towards one 's pursuit, only with the commitment and efforts to one 's utmost, victory could be achieved. And now, as I look up to those athletes, not only that I no longer detest their opinions, I too, join their camps, looking forward to run once again to my heart 's content, with the beginning
But did I push myself 110% everyday no! There 's no question there, some days are just harder to get through, same thing goes for a month. So no I didn 't push myself 110% everyday.” I 've always known Carver to push himself hard as a teacher so again I wasn 't expecting him to say no. In conclusion I feel like the message that Carver was trying to see acrossed was to not get married and then go to college. Because all it 's really going to do is hold you back from what you need to get accomplished and marriage can wait until you finish college or really any
Tough Hope Imagine you want to make a team but you didn 't make it well that happened to me. This is the time I went through tough hope. After I didn 't make the team I practiced really hard to make the team next year. My journey through tough hope has affected me in many ways like this one. When I didn 't make the baseball team I really wanted to make.
Due to the long practices, the members are usually exhausted, but proud of each other and how hard they have worked. “I feel like everyone can definitely improve, but in the end every practice is worth going to,” commented Jessy. “All the adrenaline we build up from practices goes into competitions so it’s worth it in the end,” added sophomore Coco
