His response was simple but set the tone for my new mindset for the rest of my baseball career. He told me that all I had to do to get better at baseball was “work hard”. With this new thought in my head I went to practice with one goal in my head, to “work hard”. At times during those that first month of practice, I started to lose sight of this new vision my dad had given me, but was refreshed fully when I started to notice changes in my baseball skills. I started to pick up the pace more and more everyday.
Several months later, I decided to audition for the Legion baseball team. My father and I wished to be certain I made the team, so we practiced harder and more often than before the school baseball tryouts. When the time came, I performed. The extra practice was effective; I was accepted to the team. The head coach called me directly, and then I informed my parents.
but I never thought it would be as challenging as it has been for me this year. Softball is a big part of my life and who I am, but should I have to be as dedicated as my coaches make me be? I am a freshmen at American River this year I am attending school and playing softball. When I decided to play softball I new it was going to be a lot of time and hard work. But what I did not realize was all of the things I was going to give up. As a team we have six days straight of softball a week and someday it will be practice which are at least three hours.
There is a saying in softball it’s that “however hard you work in practice is what is shown on game day”. When game day comes I know I’ll do just dandy if I did fine in
“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday 's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That 's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that 's the way baseball is”(Bob Feller). People in America besides the food, the jobs, and the freedom love and enjoy Americas sports. While a great many of people see football as “America 's game”, baseball has been “America 's game” for over a generation.
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. Relying on myself rather than the adults who could have answered a few of my questions showed that I could control it and not rely on anyone but me to make sure it went smoothly and of course fun for the
People think sports are just sports, but in reality to athletes it’s an escape from life, it’s our second family, and most important we feel like we belong there. Sports make you feel like your apart of something bigger than a team. Softball has been my second family and I have made so many amazing friendships that might last for the rest of life and even if they don’t, I will never forget all my friends or the memories that I have playing ball with
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
Although, college athletes play sports I understand that school is important,and you have to have good grades to be able to participate in your extra curricular activity. College students get a high GPA and everything to be able to get into the school they want whereas student athletes don’t have to work as hard. While college sports play a valuable role on university
Final 3 review with John My father was less worried about my dreams when he decided to walk out of my life to concentrate on his issues. I was only nine years old with great interests in baseball that needed his encouragement and guidance during my training. I communicated to my mother, my desire to pitch and that I would never be good because I needed my father to teach me. That day I learned one of the most valuable things in my life she told me to never take the easy way out and blame someone else for not accomplishing your dreams. She told me to achieve a goal you must develop a plan.
But, as Jeter got older he wasn’t as fun anymore. He became more serious and wanted to win Jeter wanted to be the best. He would spend days practicing to become the best. He would spend days practicing to become the best. Baseball thought that he could become the best as long as he didn’t give up.
I would like to get better at baseball because that's what i like to do is play baseball. The thing about baseball is that it's a fun sport to play. I played since i was 6. To get better i must get better at throwing, bating, Etc,... Also i have to amplify my skills.
I believe in baseball. Baseball allows many people to enter the doors of competition through recreation with others. My first year of baseball I didn’t have a care in the world, I would run with my head up so my helmet would fall off and I would kick up dust into the fielder’s face. Now I play with burning ambition and act like there isn’t any other place in the world i’d rather be when I am on the field. This impressive game has changed my life.
The ball went flying through the air as if it was taken by the wind. I watched it and then was then yelled at to RUN! It was my first ever baseball hit. I Lined up inside the box itching to get my first hit. The pitcher got the signals from his coach.
