My softball team had gone undefeated all season. Every other team we played was no competition, until we played Ridgefield. They had also gone undefeated all season. But this tournament was allstars. None of the previous games mattered until that weekend.
Several years ago, I decided that my passion was baseball. It was my favorite activity, and I practiced in my free time. In seventh grade, I planned to audition for the school baseball team. I desired to make the team more than anything. My skills were consistently satisfactory the previous years; however, this was different.
Every friendship and life lesson learned has happened by playing the sport that I love so much. From little league to college, baseball has taught me more than being an athlete. It has taught me how to work hard, and be passionate about what you love because it doesn’t last forever. Never take something you love for granted because it can be gone in the blink of an eye. Trust me, I’ve learned a few things over the
Respect directly correlates from the game of baseball to the workforce. Just like I had to respect my coaches and teammates I am also going to have to respect my boss and fellow employees. Last, teamwork could quite possibly be the greatest thing I have learned through sports. In fear of letting my team down, I gained an exceptional sense of responsibility. I knew I could not win games single-handedly, but I was assured that my efforts made a difference.
“Rodriguez, get off the field!”, these words stabbed through my heart like a dull knife through leather. Since the first practice I attended Softball has always been my life. I look back at my twelve years of experience there was one say that specifically stands out. Not even the the days where I hit my first home run or made my first diving play stand out. For many many years I was always seen as the player the team called on to pull the team out of a rut.
However, earning your position, being undeserving of playing time, and coaches trying to win in their respected program are all issues that need to be thought of before people begin fighting for equal playing time. High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good.
This fun experience recently was moments I will never forget. I loved how I could be in charge of the situation and teach them how to work their fundamentals into the game. Independence was definitely shown throughout the few games I attended as a ´´coach´´. I had to make sure the right player was up to bat at the right time or some things would have got confusing. Responsibility was a must and I think I executed the situation very well.
In 2013, I was selected to play on the only all girls baseball team in the largest tournament for twelve year olds in the United States, Cooperstown Dreams Park in Cooperstown, New York. Baseball has always been a male dominant sport and because of that, I have always been praised for being the only girl on the all boys team. Since I was four years old, I had only played with boys. Everyone welcomed me and saw nothing wrong. However, as I grew older and know-it-all dads began coaching their sons, the same faces who welcomed me, turned their backs.
Since 1926 the Cardinals have won eleven World Series, and they make the playoffs just about every year. The last time the Cubs have won a World Series was 1908, they only won it twice, and there are many theories on why the Cubs have not won it since like the Billy goat curse. Another difference is the teams mascots. The Cardinals mascot is a cardinal named Fredbird which was introduced on April 6, 1979. The Cardinals have a second mascot called the rally squirrel, which showed up in the middle of a postseason game which the cardinals were losing, and after that they won the game, and went on to win the World Series.
The buzzer going off, the crowd cheering, for the first time in school history, Trinty Clinton Township are state chapions. That team made history, acheiving far more than what any spartan was thought possible, but this team accomplished far more than a state championship. There has been Trinity greats that have made a mark in the Trinity basketball program history. I knew, this being my last year at trinity, that I had had mighty big shoes to fill if I also wanted to make a perminet mark at trinity.

Samardzija will have a tough time trying to get the White Sox a win against the Bucs tonight, as he 'll have to face the MLB leader in wins (10) and NL leader in ERA (1.71) Gerrit Cole. Cole has never faced the White Sox, but he has faced some current White Sox players when they were on different teams; they 've only assembled a .125 average off him. As the first player in the MLB to win 10 games, Cole will be looking to be the first to capture an 11th win. The game should be a tight one tonight, with two quality pitchers on the hill. The first pitch of the game is expected to be delivered at 8:10 p.m.
The Orange 's success from beyond the arc has been a key to their run. Syracuse’s 143 3-point attempts broke the tournament record set by the 2015 Huskies team and if the Orange hit seven 3-pointers, they would break the mark of 54 also set by last seasons team. But UConn has yet to be flustered by anyone this season. UConn is undefeated and teams struggle to contain it high power offense. Stewart is possibly one of the best to ever don a Huskies ' jersey.
John Goodman, a native teenager from Baller County, Georgia, is a high school baseball star and local celebrity; however, his fame, much like most well known bigwigs, didn’t come with ease. John’s determination and dedication to the sport of baseball landed him a place on the All-American team. This, in turn, made Goodman the first player from Baller County High School to be recognized and honored in any extracurricular activity beyond that of the state level; which he achieved in his freshmen year of high school. The young pitcher had many expectations to live up to in the oncoming years due to his spectacular athletic ability on the mound. Aside from his God given superb natural talents, Goodman knew that to accomplish his dream of becoming a Major League pitcher from such a small rural home place that he must never take his training exercises and leadership responsibilities lightly, but to always show no less
