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.
Then my dad came home in time that day, so we went to the batting cages. I step in the cage that throws bullets instead of baseballs. I line my feet up with the artificial plate. I look up to see a baseball hurdling towards me like a meteor. Even though the baseball moved ninety miles per-hour it was moving in slow motion.
I gave it my all and pitched like there was no tomorrow. As we were nearing the end of the game the score was close, but we were ahead by one point. It had just become and even more intense that it already was. Every single person was on the edge of their seat waiting to see who would win it all. My team was up to bat and I was on third base.

“Find your passion and make it happen” - Irene Cara “This one is an easy strikeout bud!” my dad would say. “Ball four! Batter take your walk” the umpire called out. After the game my dad would give me his motivational speech, telling me how much he looks up to me for finding love in the game he loved as a kid. Hoping to cheer me up from a bad inning but it wasn’t just a bad inning; I just didn’t like baseball.
This mindset would be crushed on my first day of baseball practice, where I was put in my place and forced to re-evaluate what it truly means to be a successful person. Baseball has taught me that no amount of inborn genius can or should
“Fall seven times stand up eight.” It all started first hour in gym class. I was in Mrs. Margalgus’s class and we were facing Mr. Maveus’s class. That 's when Mr. Mavus yelled, “We are going to play dodgeball!” After Mr. Maveus finished giving directions and both classes went to different sides of the gym. The girls got to run out and get dodgeballs first, then I picked up the dark royal blue squishy rubber dodgeball. And then the whistle blew to start the game that sent a ringing through my ear.
He was elected into the Major league Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot which is very impressive because not many people make it on the first ballot, not even today. Today the MLB honors Jackie Robinson by everybody in the league wearing the number 42 which was the number he wore when he played baseball. The league wears the number 42 on April 15th which is known as Jackie Robinson Day and if there is any teams that don't play on the 15th they will celebrate it on the 16th to honor it still. Every year they bring the Robinson family out on the Dodgers field to celebrate the special event. This year will be the 69th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson took the field for the first time breaking down the color
The look on her face screamed pain and Aaron were just moving in enjoyment. He was so into Mo that he didn 't notice her hands moving around the dresser. I couldn 't believe what I was seeing in front of me, was this shit really happening in my house? This is mom 's husband. This is the man that took me to my first baseball game.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.--The West Virginia University baseball team split a doubleheader with Jacksonville on Saturday afternoon at Monongalia County Ballpark. “Doubleheaders are such a beating,” WVU head coach Randy Mazey said. “At 5:30 this afternoon we were up 8-1 and as soon as that game ended they made up a seven run deficit. “The score goes to 0-0, they catch life and come out swinging the bats, and that’s why every coach in the world tries to avoid doubleheaders at all cost because the team that loses the first game has the momentum going into the second game just cause they tied it up. They came out swinging; you have to give them credit.
One of my teammates was batting, he stepped into the batter 's box about to take a swing. “Hit a homerun” I thought. The pitch was thrown, “Strike”called the umpire. My heart was racing because I really wanted to win this game. The pitcher threw the next pitch.
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.
Miguel Montero then ended up driving in another run later on to put the Cubs up two runs, the score 8-6! Now the bottom of the 10th, runner on first. The count 0-1 with 2 outs, the pitch to the Indian player Michael Martinez. The announcer yelling through the TV speakers, “ Here’s the 0-1, this is gonna be a tough play, Bryant, THE CUBS, WIN THE WORLD SERIES!!! The curse finally broken, as the crowd went wild.
Another day at Fenway. The Boston Red Sox are trailing the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 and Mookie Betts (The Red Sox Right Fielder) comes to the bat for the first time tonight due to a sore arm. Bronson Arroyo (Reds Pitcher) throws a wicked curveball that is almost impossible to hit. But Mookie knew that this ball was long gone. Arroyo thought he was gonna strike out Mookie but he was certainly incorrect.
