Mickey still pursuing his dream, joined a local baseball club called The Whiz Kidz. In his first game with the Whiz Kidz Mickey hit 3 homeruns.To show his gratitude a fan started a collection for Mickey and his outstanding performance. Mickey accepted all $53, and was ecstatic it was the most money he’d ever seen. Unfortunately, the school also heard about his performance and about how he accepted the money, so the school said he couldn’t continue to play high school sports if he didn’t return the money. Mickey gave the money back, so he could continue playing high school.

“Oh my goodness,” Bryce stuttered out, as his jaw fell almost the ground. “This has got to be a freshman game attendance record,” my teammates said. Our coach was even astonished, “I have never seen this building so packed.” I immediately stopped the drill I was doing and just watched. My eyes lit up wider than a kid in a candy shop who just received his allowance. Then the noise began to rattle the PIT into an environment of bedlam.

As a team, we have been playing with one another for most of our lives. We have built a bond that can never be broken, that bond can only help with our future success. The goal for every high school baseball team is to win the state championship. North Pocono has not won a state title, at least not in the 16 years that I have been alive. If any team deserves the title, it is this year’s team.

The softball game is made into a family day, so all of the police officers family’s get together and do a BBQ, rent a jumpy for the kids, and make t-shirts for all the police officers to wear. It’s a sloppy game because they don’t ever practice but that’s exactly what makes it more enjoyable. The super bowl game weekend is held in Reno each year and it’s a handful of police officers from the department who get together and rent a huge hotel room and just hangout and enjoy each other’s company outside of the department. One thing which he loves about his department is that they’re very team and family oriented which means a lot to him. The officer enjoys his job because he gets to be out and about and moving instead of sitting in a cubicle all day long.
Jackie Robinson In my opinion I think a hero is a person that changes lives forever. My hero is Jackie Robinson because he is the first African American baseball player, first African American to win NL MVP, and the first African American to have his number retired. The first reason I think Jackie Robinson is a hero because he was the first African American to play baseball. For example, if he would have not played there's kids out there that wouldn’t be able to play baseball that are great at it. Also he was great a person to so white people are gonna look at African Americans different because he was nice gentlemen.

“Baseball is and always will be the greatest game”, a quote that was invented by Babe Ruth himself. I totally agree with him on that quote because my opinion is the same as his was. Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball player who ever lived for his stats he put up and how many people he inspired in his game. I have been playing baseball since I was three years old, ever since I could pick up a baseball. It was the game that my family pushed for me to play when I was younger and I fell in love with it more and more each time I picked up a baseball, of course it took long for me to actually get good but I finally got there when I was twelve years old.
I always dreamed of celebrating a state tournament berth with my teammates, and the summer of 2013 I got to do that. But I had no clue what was about to happen that summer. The state tournament consisted of mostly metro teams whose population ranged from 20,000 to 200,000. We were the town of 3,000 heading into the state tournament just hoping we wouldn’t take last. I’ll never forget the time my baseball team won state because it made me realize that even though we are a very trivial town, we can still do very immense things.
TRANSITIONS Over the Labor day weekend, at the Delafield Walmart crowded parking lot, people watched as an impertinent teenager dashed into an empty parking space. The parking lot was full, and this made many of the adults furious as they wanted to get in and out quickly. Trying to get last minute school supplies, food for Labor day barbeques, and many more things. The adults thought the worst about the situation, “That teenager is up to no good doing that.” Little did they know he was waving at a car with an elderly couple. He was saving the spot for the elderly couple doing a good deed, not doing anything wrong.
