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.
After about a year my pitching dreams came true and pitched a couple of innings in a game. After that happened I realized that I didn’t want to just play third base and pitcher in order to play more in games. My coach had asked me if I wanted to learn how to be a catcher because my team only had one and she wasn’t going to be able to play next year due to her age. I agreed to try it and I instantly liked it because I felt in charge and in control of the ball. I finished playing summer softball as the main catcher for every
On October 13th, The Cubs won a postseason series for the first time ever at Wrigley Field when they punched their ticket to the NLCS by beating the St. Louis Cardinals. However, in a fiery matchup against the New York Mets, the Cubs fell flat. The Mets were in control, their offense pummeled the Cubs pitching, scoring a total of 21 runs in 4 games. It wasn 't the time for the Cubs. The Mets caught fire, the Cubs were missing something.
Red Sox history has also been marked by the team's intense rivalry with the New York Yankees, arguably the fiercest and most historic in North American professional sports. Since 2003, the Red Sox have been perennial playoff contenders and have won two World Series, emerging as one of the most successful MLB teams of the last decade. The Red Sox are consistently one of the top MLB teams in average road attendance, while the small capacity of Fenway Park prevents them from leading in overall attendance. Every home game since May 15, 2003 has been sold out a span of over seven years and an MLB record. The name Red Sox, chosen by owner John I. Taylor after the 1907 season, refers to the red hose in the team uniform beginning 1908.
That was probably the most intense game myself or our team have ever played and it felt great to win that game. The funny thing was that our championship game was a walk in the park compared to the semi-final. We beat them by five points making us the Division Two
Can you imagine the other team looking at the roster and finding out then were going to let at thirteen year old freshman pitch to their nineteen year old senior batters? They laughed at me until they stepped in the batters box. The year passed and our senior pitcher graduated bumping me into the starting position. This is where we knew we would start a legacy. Yet again we were the powerhouse of the western slope.Our success was spreading quickly and more and more players and coaches wanted to join!
This was my best event. I did really good on it I was one of the fifteen people advancing to the next round. The next event was the texas barrels after that it was the arena race then the last event was the cloverleave. On all of the three barrel races I did just bad enough to not be able to go to the next round. About three hours after the first wave was the second round.
In 2007 at Super Bowl 42, they defeated the best team in the NFL at the time. At that time, the New England Patriots were undefeated with a 16-0 (16 wins 0 loses) record and were voted most likely to win the Super Bowl. The Giants came in with a heart full of courage and pride; ready to upset a lot of fans and gamblers. The most iconic moment in the game was in the 4th quarter, when Manning dropped back to pass, but was surrounded by New England pass rushers. Escaping three tackles, he threw a long pass to David Tyree, who caught the ball against his own helmet, while being covered by Patriots safety Rodney Harrison.
Once I take a swing at the perfect pitch you can hear the crack of the bat forcefully pushing the ball to get a base hit. At first base I then watch our coach give the sign to hit to the next batter, he then turns to give me the steal sign. As I watch the pitcher start her motion all I can think about is running my hardest to get to the next bag. 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.
So, i 'm expecting to go in once were down by thirty or so and i 'll have fun playing the garbage minutes. But, I was wrong on both. I played almost the entire game and we won the game. As you can tell by the picture, we celebrated like we just won the championship. It is one of my favorite memories.

Every batter and runner on base you could tell both teams were completely focused on winning that game. Each inning went by in a flash until the 5th inning, Mitty had tacked on a couple of runs making it 3-0 Mitty. Then my team came to bat and stayed at bat for a while scoring 5 runs making it 5-3 Serra. The 6th inning moved along swiftly with Mitty scoring two more runs tying the game at 5. Bottom of the 6th inning Mitty had brought in a new pitcher, a tall right hander who threw pretty hard.
