At the beginning of spring training one of the players said “Look at Dunnie and his new babe.” The name stuck with him and from that point forward he was called Babe instead of George (Ruth’s). While playing with the Ravens he performed very well leading to him being sold to the Major League team the Boston RedSoxs. Even though Babe is known for his hitting back in the Majors, he started out as a pitcher. Babe won his major league debut in July of 1914. The only issue was that the Red Sox’s roster was full, so Ruth was moved to their Minor league team the Providence Grays.

As the pitch is thrown I race my way and slide into the bag and hear to umpire scream “safe”. My teammates are screeching with excitement.
“Strike two”, the umpire yells again. I think to myself, here is my chance to prove to everyone that I am not this weak kid who can barely hit the ball. The pitcher is back in the center of the mound; she is ready to throw the final pitch that could end the game. She lets lose a 60 mph fastball right down the center. It is the dream pitch for every softball player out there.
Also my dad and I play catch on the beach with either a baseball or football. Sometimes it can get to be too hot on the beach but it usually doesn’t matter especially if you are in the water. Going to the beach when i’m in Florida is always a must because it is so relaxing and sometimes the only time you have to be off your feet. Reyna 3 Traveling has become one of my favorite things to do, and traveling to Florida has become my favorite place to travel. The National Championship Game will be something I will never forget.
In Brazil, we don't have the perfect Four Seasons, as we have in the most part of the United States. Brazilian culture is very rich because our heritage is made out of different races so we have a variety of foods and music. Q: Was it difficult to assimilate into this country?

No matter who you are or where you have come from, you have undoubtedly heard of the American Dream. The idea that no matter who you are or where you have come from, you can do whatever it is you desire in America. What was once one the main driving forces for immigrants to flock to the new world, has slowly changed over the years, but still holds its value in the eyes of those who are looking for a promising new place to live.

The baseball flies by me in a flash into the catcher 's mitt, and the umpire calls a ball on the pitch! Then something in my head says “run”, and without hesitation I sprint down the line to first base. Little did I know that my first baseball game would haunt me for years to come. It was the first game of Baseball season, and I was ready to represent my school on the field. It was the second inning and we were down by one, and it was my turn to bat.
