Rounding third base, she sprinted to home plate. But just as she had rounded the base, the ball came sailing in to me. I caught the ball and stood my ground in front of home plate, blocking her path. She charged forward, and slid through the dirt, trying to avoid the tag, but I still got her. “Out!” the umpire yelled to the crowd.
It was my first season on the big field. Those extra thirty feet between bases made running to first seem like running a mile. I was on a team full of people that I had never seen before in my life. Together, we formed the Virginia Cobras. Even though we were still getting our bearings on the big field, we played with confidence and passion.
Now I am going to talk about how baseball is risky. Baseball is a ultra fun sport to play because sometimes you are up to bat and if you get out you lose or if you get a hit you win. Same thing as if you are in the field, if a ball is hit to you, you must the play and if you don’t, you lose. Baseball is a risky sport to play in, and baseball is a game of inches. Sometimes, the coach sends you home on risky play and you are safe, then your team and fans
"And next up is little Alexander Stroble", the speakers blare. He wobbles up to the plate, the helmet on his head making him unbalanced with each step. With the bat in his hand and the ball in his eyesight, he was ready to hit the best homerun of his life. His coach throws him a level pitch and he swings, and misses. "Strike one" ,the umpire yells, but that doesn’t phase him; he knows he has two more tries.On the next one, he swings and hits, but it wasn’t the exact home run he was looking for.
This person stands in the middle of the field and makes the ball get across the home plate for the batter to hit the ball. You can’ throw the ball, you have to wind up your arm like a windmill and release right at your hip. The pitcher also can field the ball or go after the when the batter hits it. Catcher The catcher is also an important part of a softball game. This position’s responsibilities are to retrieve
Finally, the first World Series baseball game has begun. The first guy came up to the plate. I could not be happier. The first pitch was a strike. Then the 2nd pitch was a strike and the batter swung and missed.
We get three out then we go in the dugout to bat. We all get a chance to bat until they get three outs on us. First up to bat is my best friend Cameron he normally bunts(because he is fast)then it is me. I step up to the plate ready to hit what coach tells me to hit. Most of the time he tells me to swing away.
“So this is what you do to pass time?” I laughed. She shrugged her shoulders, “Who doesn’t like to stare at men in tight pants?” I looked out at the field, “So…they are just throwing the balls back and forth. I’ll try to contain my excitement.” Sarah laughed, “It’s warm ups, wait until you see some of these players. The pitcher is pretty fine but the short stop is hotter! Well in my opinion he is.” I had to practically squint to see the faces of the players after they had jogged to their positions on the field.
The DH causes opportunity and weaknesses to be hidden. Removing the DH and requiring all pitchers to hit, increases the chances of possibly seeing a pitcher combine pitching greatness with batting exploits and accomplish something amazing for everyone to see. In baseball there is this thing called a free agent. It is when your contract expires for the team you are with and you get offers from other teams to play for them. If the DH would be taken away and they learn to hit, the pitcher would have to hit and this could allow them to become huge prospects in the off season during free agency.
My personal Artifact is a baseball my son and I caught at the Giants game. It is white, round, has red stitches, and is smooth when new, but when we caught it it was beat up and the blue writing on it was smeared. A baseball is small and light in size. It can be thrown at speeds up to 100 MPH, or hit at at speeds higher than 100MPH, so when playing the game or watching you should be paying attention at all times. A baseball is made of a rubber or cork center, wrapped in yarn very tight, covered by white leather with red stitching around the out side, making it a very hard ball.
In both sports, after someone hits the ball into fair territory they must drop the bat and run to first. In both sports, the defense must get three outs before switching to offense. In both softball and baseball, runners must advance on ground balls hit if a teammate occupies the base behind them, starting with first base. If a fly ball is hit and caught, a runner must return to their base until the ball is caught before advancing. If the caught ball is thrown to the original base first, the runner is
Lastly, there’s curveballs and screwballs. A curveball is a pitch thrown with a downward spin that causes the ball to drop and swerve to the left as it approaches the home plate. On the other hand, a screwball is a pitch that moves in the opposite direction of a curveball; a screwball veers to the right of the home plate. In all, curveballs and screwballs are the hardest to stop. In order to stop a curveball, it’s necessary for you to be on your toes, ready.
First of all, the pitcher, and catcher are the ones in control of the game. The pitcher tries to throw a strike without the hitter hitting the ball. The catcher catches the pitchers throws, and also gives the signs to the field from the coach. Also, the infield`s job is to knock down everything that comes its way. If the ball is hit they field the ball or catch a ball that does not travel to the outfield.
We only needed one more out to win a state title. Brandon rared back and fired the ball towards home. The ball hit the bat and made a loud “ding” as the ball rolled right back to Brandon who picked it up and fired it to first. I could hear the crowd roar as we all dog piled in front of the mound. I had never been so exultant in my
