If I do not have confidence I am not going to get any better, or be any good at all. I am always trying to improve my confidence and skills by going to camps. In 2012, I went to a baseball camp at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota with Cole Nisbit. That camp changed my life forever because it gave me confidence and I became best friends with Cole. First of all, I hate going to camps alone.
The first season of baseball that I played was a learning experience, but was exciting the entire way. I became one of the best players on my team, only to learn that I was in fact the last player selected to fill out the roster for little league. Undersized and young, I ascended through little league and was actually selected for the all-star team my final year, an anomaly for a player with my experience. I battled injuries following little league because I was forced to overcompensate for my lack of size to compete and keep up with the competition. Ironically, I watched the big players “become” smaller as I grew in size in my sophomore year of high school.
I always asked everyone about college and if they think it is better than High school. Many say that it is hard but, some people think it is better because it is on you. As of right now, I am truly enjoying the college life and working hard and making friends and trying to fit new things. However, this does not come easy for me and it took me a long time to get use to the difference between highs school and college. In high school, I played baseball and I have always been known in West Warwick so playing baseball as easy for me, but this year it changed because I started to play for the college baseball team and I became very busy.
I scampered across the field and snatched the ball as I ran into the netting that had been left from batting practice. I untangled myself and made the winning throw. Even though I had been down all night, a competition allowed me to refocus and harness my skills and allow me to reach a level I would have never gotten to without it. Competition makes people better and allows them to reach heights never thought possible, and heights that would never be reached if they were not forced to push themselves to be their best
Baseball, America’s favorite pastime, is a sport in which so many kids dream of growing up and playing under the lights like their favorite baseball heroes. They dream of playing at Yankee Stadium alongside legends such as Derek Jeter as the crowd of fifty thousand spectators chant their name. The dream that sprouts from the first tee ball game all the way through little league and high school. Baseball to me wasn 't just a game, it was life. It was a life full of ups and downs, joy and disappointment.
Narrative I am so excited for the baseball game that I am going to tonight. My favorite team, the Kansas City Royals, are playing in the World Series against the New York Mets. The Royals won the first game of the series in a thrilling, 14 inning game. My dad went to the game, but didn’t get to go to that game. Unfortunately, I am at school right now so I didn’t get to skip school because of the game.
Augie has to go to school for the first time, instead of homeschooling, in 5th grade. Augie has a very kind principal name Mr.Tushman. He makes some friends (Jack and Summer.) By the end of the year he is kinda cool with everyone. He gets a award and a standing ovations and after he came to the conclusion that “Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.” August is a brave, kind, but (can be) selfish 10 year old boy.
For example, every year we hold the Senior Sunset event and each year they held it on auditorium and I noticed that students began to get tired of the tradition because they didn’t have much to expect. For that reason, I, along with my officers, decided to make the event fun and turn it into a senior sunset/field day with plenty of activities on our football field and it turned out to be a huge success. Making senior week more engaging and original was also a major concern and I was happy to be a part of the change. In my research I noticed that the Student Foundation works on giving back to university in which to benefit the students and I have experience with this type of work which can help make the foundation more effective in its
Baseball gives me confidence and reminds me of where some of my talents lie. Baseball has always been a talent I can fall back on when I begin to feel bad about myself. Though baseball can not always solve my problems, hitting in a batting cage or playing catch with a teammate is nearly a surefire way to get me into a more positive state of mind. At the beginning of fall, I made a profile on a baseball recruiting website that is used by a majority of college programs, and every now and then I will receive a notice that college coaches are looking at my profile and are potentially trying to recruit me to play baseball at their school. For me, college baseball is a huge goal, and finding that I may get that opportunity causes me to further believe in myself.
Mawi later says “My brother had always looked for angels. I had watched him see angels in the most unlikely places and wanted nothing more than to be like him”(Pg 110). Because of Mawi’s parents drilling the fact that he should do really well in school and the memory of his brother, he excelled academically and sometimes went to extremes to do so. For example, “Over Christmas vacation, I read and took notes on more than twelve hundred pages”(Pg 113) so that he could ace his junior English class. But in the end the book’s namesake (Of Beetles and Angels) came in to top things off.

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.
Black history is probably one of my favorite to learn about, so it is no surprise that I would take such joy and excitement of teaching it to children. I 've done this fun, crafty, and educational activity with my three and four-year old at one daycare that I taught at and they absolutely loved it. I 'm very much a history buff as well as a sports fanatic (thanks to my Dad) and I choose the great Jackie Robinson who was essentially the first African-American man to break the color line in major league baseball (MLB) in 1947. Mr. Robinson played for the Brooklyn Dodgers as a second-base man and was placed in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962, which was well-deserved. Fun Fact: He was first signed by a white man named Branch Rickey.
After Jeter’s retirement, he announced he was going to launch a website called “The Players’ Tribune.”This site would be used as a place for fans to interact with their sports heroes. Derek Jeter could be argued as the best, or most inspirational player in baseball history. Jeter is a very good man, that has many fans. Derek always took being a New York Yankee with a lot of pride because that was always his dream. Jeter changed the game of baseball and he touched the hearts of many children with his foundations.
Captained by the Clark brothers Matt and Cam, the Panthers look to improve on their weak record of last Spring (two, maybe three wins?) and compete in a high powered Mayflower League. As is the case more often than not, the Panthers’ baseball team will consist of many underclassmen such as myself, and even more middle schoolers. Needless to say, we have a young team. As is also often the case, we will still to the best of our ability put in the work and effort necessary to succeed.
