At three years old, I fell in love, and it's a love affair that has continued to this day. All I remember is wanting to hit with my dad every second of every day. Now if you go ask him, he will probably take credit for how good I've become as a player. But that's another story on its own. Baseball has had my heart ever since my little hands were big enough to pick up a bat.
Everywhere you look there’s people sitting or standing cheering on their favorite team and player. Parents are lugging around bags full of snacks and blankets while girls are carrying around big bags of softball gear. You can smell the popcorn from the concession stand and the dirt on the field. It’s a beautiful day at the softball fields; 75 degrees and sunny! I was on a new team called Iowa Outlaws, and I wanted to show my team that I could help them.
It was a hot July night. The softball game that had been scheduled, was cancelled because the other team was short 2 players. Right after the umpires called the game, the girls showed up. So, instead of completely wasting everyone's night, the coaches decided it would be a good idea to have a scrimmage. It would be good practice for everyone.
Over the last four years, my life has been a whirlwind full of countless events. Events that have resulted in fantastic memories and others that will alway be painful to think about. My two out of state trips that I attended with the baseball team automatically stand out. During sophomore year, being about to play baseball in Florida was amazing. There are many reasons that this will be the trip I remember from high school.
It was monday August 3rd 2015 on a hot summer day . It was a day I will never forget . I had been anticipating this date for months now and the day had finally arrived. I remember dolling ourselves up as much as we could putting our favorite teams shirt on and hopping into the car . Our drive to Turner Field stadium in atlanta felt like forever .
Baseball Narrative In 1985 the Royals took the crown against the Saint Louis Cardinals in the World Series, and it happened again in 2015 against the New York Mets. On a breezy night in November, my family was watching game 5 of the World Series. Throughout innings 1-5 nobody had scored yet, so the score, I guess, was looking alright. “Kaylea guess what!”
One day, my family were watching the Royals game five of the World Series on the T.V. This wasn’t any game though, If the Royals won this game, they would win the World Series! I was watching the game with my parents and my two sisters, Caroline and Lucy. It was very exciting because the Royals hadn’t won the World Series in 30 years!
Eliza’s Memoir I play softball. It was All-Stars, and we were in first place at the moment. We had won three games, to London, Circleville, and another team whose name I can’t remember. It was the second to the last game, and our team was watching from some nice shade in the outfield (By the way, it was in the 90’s while we were there.
The worst typical day is at my so called job, which is softball practice. I like softball practice, but this one day it really stunk. It all started out by me being late to softball practice. I normally get off the bus around 3:30, but that day the bus was having some problems. The bus had to pull over and the bus driver had to check the engine.
Narrative I am so excited for the baseball game that I am going to tonight. My favorite team, the Kansas City Royals, are playing in the World Series against the New York Mets. The Royals won the first game of the series in a thrilling, 14 inning game. My dad went to the game, but didn’t get to go to that game. Unfortunately, I am at school right now so I didn’t get to skip school because of the game.
Homewood-Flossmoor varsity baseball team won Friday's home non-conference game against Marian Catholic High School by a close score of 7-6. Varsity Head Coach Todd Sippel felt the team didn’t play to their full potential and not being able to work on the field during practices due to rain really impacted the game, but a win is always the best payback. “It wasn’t perfect, but we got a victory. I’m very happy with the victory. We played good enough to win,” Varsity Head Coach Todd Sippel said.
