The first season of baseball that I played was a learning experience, but was exciting the entire way. I became one of the best players on my team, only to learn that I was in fact the last player selected to fill out the roster for little league. Undersized and young, I ascended through little league and was actually selected for the all-star team my final year, an anomaly for a player with my experience. I battled injuries following little league because I was forced to overcompensate for my lack of size to compete and keep up with the competition. Ironically, I watched the big players “become” smaller as I grew in size in my sophomore year of high school.
Although I knew deep down this fate was inevitable, I was still awestruck. I lost all confidence in myself. If I couldn’t even make the freshman team, how could I do anything? I was deterred, but fought back. I joined another little league team and had the best season yet as a baseball player.
I played two sports in high school. My soccer team won 6 games my entire high school so obviously we were not very good but i still had so much passion for the sport. The other sport I played in high school was Softball. But for softball we were actually amazing. My junior year in softball everybody was scared to play us because we were scary good.
At the end of the 2013 softball season, Kelsey Bradford found herself facing a possible state champion title along with a possible surgery. It was a night filled with nervous energy, happiness, and pain. “I will never forget the feeling that I had when I stepped up to the plate as the first batter of the game. I was so nervous but so excited at the same time,” Kelsey recalled. “At the first bat of the game, I made an in the park home run.
As I pound my bat against home plate I get ready for the perfect ball to come. Then it came, the perfect ball, could not have curved any better, I smacked it with my bat, It was out of the park! It could have been the last game of the season for the Braves Major league Baseball, we were the best, the champions, then the A’s put up a fight but they will not end it now.The A’s got the whole Braves team nervous, so we practiced for every day for the next two weeks preparing for game, then half way through two weeks of training the Braves were stronger, prepared, and twice as good as the used to be, they boosted their self esteem double their regular. Finally it was game time, the Braves were tougher than ever,the bleachers had no more room
Baseball is a game I have been playing since the age of eight. Since then, I have been a phenomenal hitter. I was a right-handed hitter when I started playing baseball, and I was the best hitter in my age group. I always hit home runs when it was my turn to bat. The coaches who picked the teams argued about who would get the first pick because they all wanted to pick me first.
In the bottom of the second, the Mets didn’t score anything. I was still nervous since the Royals were still down by one. I was worried through the third, fourth, and fifth innings because the Royals and Mets didn’t really do anything. In the bottom of the sixth, Duda
In high school, I played baseball and I have always been known in West Warwick so playing baseball as easy for me, but this year it changed because I started to play for the college baseball team and I became very busy. College baseball is nothing like High school because it is all different people from different states and towns and you have no clue who anyone is. This was a true struggle for me because usually I am friendly and know what I am doing but, this year I had no clue what was going on. Instead of having thirty kids try out like high school, there was around fifty adults trying out,
The day I was first asked to play travel baseball changed who I am as a person. While playing for a fall league team, a coach from a travel team took notice in me, and he asked me to join his team. Little did I know, my acceptance of the offer shaped who I am now by giving me all kinds of character traits such as teamwork and responsibility. Another memorable event was my first home run. I remember that day as if it were yesterday, and my first home run will always be one of my happiest memories.
But during my sophomore year in high school, everything didn’tseem togo the way I wantedto be.And it was because of the injury I had, my life completely change since. This long story begins with a goal that I made for myselfduring my freshman year in high school; I wanted to play high school basketball for four years straight, and this goal seems pretty neat for me.Because Texas is a very competitive state for both basketball and football, so making it to the team is not easy. I went to ahigh schoolthat was ranked
It was an early Saturday morning in October, when the Panther girls softball team were playing for a third straight win. The two games before that flew by easily, we won both and were playing to be seeded first in the tournaments the next day. The crowd was full of excitement, parents yelling, and the coach yelling at the umpires, because of bad calls. We were nervous because it was a really good team that had 3 of the best players in the state. We had played them in two previous tournaments, and lost on the second day, so this time we were determined to beat them.
With Jeter leading the Yankees they went on to win the World Series against the Atlanta Braves. Jeter won the 1996 American League Rookie of the Year Award for his performance that season. Jeter went on so have record breaking seasons ever since. Jeter then retired in 2014 after being considered one of the best players in Major League Baseball history. When Derek Jeter is not playing baseball he is living his luxurious life.
Narrative about When I Broke My Wrist It was a bright and sunny day in late fall. All I was thinking about on the drive to the baseball complex was how bad I wanted to beat the team, since it was our last game of the Fall Ball season. Not only it was our last game, but we were playing one of the big dawgs, one of the rivalry games, as my dad would say. So I had to have a good game. “Am I pitching today?” I asked my dad, who is also the head coach.
“Baseball is and always will be the greatest game”, a quote that was invented by Babe Ruth himself. I totally agree with him on that quote because my opinion is the same as his was. Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball player who ever lived for his stats he put up and how many people he inspired in his game. I have been playing baseball since I was three years old, ever since I could pick up a baseball. It was the game that my family pushed for me to play when I was younger and I fell in love with it more and more each time I picked up a baseball, of course it took long for me to actually get good but I finally got there when I was twelve years old.
When anyone on the 2015 North Pocono baseball team is asked what comes to mind when they think of last season, it’s the loss to Abington in the district semifinals. Not the fact that ten of thirteen league games were won or that a league title was won, but it was the bitter end to a phenomenal season. This year, my junior year, things will hopefully go better than the previous year. The plan is to have the best work ethic as a team, team chemistry to be sky high, and to win the state championship. As a team, the work ethic needs to be second to none.
