The second batter, strikes out. 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 turned on my TV to find a classic Angels baseball game on. The first event that was shown was Pete Rose up to bat. I closed my eyes and then opened them to the ball gliding out of the pitcher's hand like a stealth bomber. Pete crushed the ball and the crowd screamed. I whispered to myself, "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine."

Once the ball is placed onto the field it becomes much harder for the fielder to field the ball and get the batter out than before. Before the slap hitting really developed into what it is today the hitter was really only able to place the ball softly on the ground. As this hitting style has developed over the years slap hitting has become even harder to predict. Coaches and players are having to study the way that slap hitter is hitting in order to fully know where she is going to hit the ball. For example, a batter who hits standing out right is more likely to hit the ball into the same position time and time again.
You can play softball just about anywhere. If someone is at a cookout and very bored, then you could get a glove and a ball and pass. Throwing the ball is one of the most important motions you do in softball, so it’s good to practice every chance you get. Softball can help you get stronger and it can build up endurance by running. It’s a sport with a great history, so your parents and grandparents and so on, could have played softball or baseball.
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
A slap bunt is where you move you bat forward to where it is kind of like a bunt, then move your bat forward more and it goes a little farther. A drag bunt is where you start in the back of the box and when the pitcher starts winding up you take a step and show you are about to bunt. When the ball and bat makes contact, you kind of lead where you want the ball to go. Fielding the ball is something that you definitely need to know how to do when playing softball. There are ten positions on the field.
My dad popped in and said, ”that was a pretty hard hit of your arms like that.” I started to laugh. After the game ended I went out on the field and high-fived the other team’s hands. My team won 25 to 1, we were so excited we jumped on each other and screamed. My whole team and I all packed up and went to the pitching mound. My coach asked, ”Reagan, are you alright?” I told her, ’’Yes, it just made me stronger.” Everybody laughed along with me.
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. In the eighth inning, senior righty Jackson Sigman entered the game with the bases loaded and forced Baker to hit the ball back to the mound for the double play. Head coach Randy Mazey dipped back into the bullpen and freshman Cody Wood gave up a two-run base hit to Nolan Brown, cutting the Horned Frogs deficit to 4-2. 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.
We started fast scoring 2 runs in the top of the 1st inning Dylan and Reno each crossed the plate that inning. Derek took the hill to pitch, he started with 2 strikeouts and a lazy fly ball to left field. Then I was up to start the top of the second inning and I watched the first two pitches pass for balls and then on the third pitch of the at bat I hit a line drive to left field for a single but the next three batters all got out. Tanner got up and said “Lets hold this lead boys.” “Yea!” the team replied. “Ok boys we are up 2 runs we need to keep playing good defense” coach stated Moving forward to
Luckily, the break was on my catching arm, not my throwing arm. After talking to my coach, we came to a compromise. They let me pitch for the start of the games in the tournament, and even bat if my hand was feeling alright! I show up at the tournament fully clothed in my baseball pants and jersey. The smell of stadium hot dogs and sweat filled my mind.
The distance change was caused by the pitching delivery, which started out as underhand thethen progressed to overhand. The final major change in dimensions was the distance between basepaths. As the bases moved farther apart this gave the catcher at most 0.9 seconds to catch and get a perfect throw down to second. (ESPN Sports Science). With the game of softball always changing it always kept players on their toes and ready at all
