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
As a freshman I knew I was going to be overlooked. Too much of my surprise I was placed on varsity for my pitching abilities. This only fueled my passion. Not only was I on the team but I played! 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?
The car ride home after the practice was horrible, I was a mess. I told my mom, “ I’m horrible at this game, I get so close everytime and I just can’t hit a ball over the fence.” She replied with the, Field of Dreams, quote “Build it and they will come.” What she was meaning by that was keep working and doing what I’m doing right now and I’ll
I was with my friend from basketball so I wasn’t nervous to throw to him. After about 10 minutes of throwing we transitioned into fielding. We first took ground balls from shortstop. As I fielded the ball I got my hand right into place to zip it to first base. As I shifted the ball into my hands I shifted my feet into position and gunned it towards my coach.
Personal Narrative My eighth grade year has barely started. I have never tried doing sports in school, so i figured i tried something new. So i joined flag football just to see how it is, I was nervous at first on how it was going to turn out, but after a while of practicing I was very comfortable with going everyday after school to practice. One day, the P.E. teacher announced, “Alright guys you’re all soon be going to High School, which means it will soon be time to apply for sports in High School.” This was exciting for me because after weeks of practicing flag football, I kind of felt like playing real football in high school.
2.Don’t work on your stick skills in the off season. You wouldn’t want to overuse your stick before the season starts. Steven Veila, Missouri Baptist commit, figured it was a good idea to rest his stick until the season and on the first day back half his teammate’s sticks were broken from overuse. 3. Horsing around during practice.
I take one foot out of the box and let out a breathe I didn’t know I was holding in. I once again looked to my coach Mike for direction and go to take a practice swing. Little did I know the catcher was getting up to pressure Maddy back to first base from her lead. As I was taking my swing I heard a thud, my bat had hit something solid. I immediately filled with remorse and tensed up.
I feel very admirable when I make a good defensive play to help the team win. 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
September 5, 2015 in Lexington, Kentucky from 6:00 to 10:00 pm at Commonwealth Stadium I was observing my wide receiver coach during the Cajuns vs Wildcats game. I did not assist him in any way I just simply watch him do his job. The only way I could have assisted was by getting in the game and running the plays that he called, but I did not because I am a redshirt freshman who just happen to travel that week. I did assist the team by cheering them on and picking them up after a bad play. As I was observing my coach, I could see the emotions on his face.
I used to think that I was going to participate in an after school activity for fun, but then my cross country team won the state championship meet, now I know I can do anything I put my mind to. Nothing was extraordinary about my life. I was just a normal ninth grader on the junior varsity cross country team. My times were not that great, so I had no intention of running varsity at all. We had a Saturday meet at Walker, but only the top seven varsity girls were going to compete.
As the ball rolled out of play, the runners continued to sprint around the bases and the play continued. Realizing that the ball went under the fence, I called timeout after the play and met with my partner who agreed with my view. I moved two runners back on the bases, taking away two runs from the hitting team. The team’s fans
