Next, Escobar hits a double that sends Cain in! We are up 4-2! But it doesn’t stop there because then the bases get loaded, then Cain gets a double because they had rotated all the way through the rotation in one inning. After Cains double, all the people on base run in. It’s 7-2, but no one scores ant more runs for the rest of the inning.
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.
After rounding first, second, and third base I was approaching home plate and tripped. My natural instinct was to try to catch myself as I was falling, but it did not work out like I hoped it would. When I returned to my feet, I realized my thumb was just hanging there, and my whole hand was filling with a sharp thumping pain. As I was headed
There was, a pitch right down the middle as everything seemed to be in slow motion when he swung at the ball as hard as he could. Pow! The ball went flying into the air and into the trees as cleared the outfield wall. The crowd went wild as Aaron trotted around the bases with a grin on his face. When he reached the dugout his teammates were right there congratulating him on his achievement with high fives and pats on the bag.
The baseball flies by me in a flash into the catcher 's mitt, and the umpire calls a ball on the pitch! Then something in my head says “run”, and without hesitation I sprint down the line to first base. Little did I know that my first baseball game would haunt me for years to come. It was the first game of Baseball season, and I was ready to represent my school on the field. It was the second inning and we were down by one, and it was my turn to bat.
To me, it represents my ability to succeed. I was pushed away from my dream but I pushed back even harder. Life isn’t always fair, accomplishing your dream may not be easy, but if do your best, everything will work out in the
Ever since I was four years old, I have done nothing but immerse my life in the sport of baseball. When I was born, the story told was that my Dad had the Cincinnati Reds game on in the hospital room, and one of the first things I saw was the T.V. My Mom said when I was laying in her arms, I had my eyes fixed on the game. I was always around the game. One of my first birthday gifts was a little foam bat and ball.
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. When I spend time at
After catching a game at Cincinnati McNicholas high school yesterday afternoon, I headed to Taft high school to watch another game. This one featured two Cincinnati high schools I had never watched play before. Aiken and Gamble Montessori, at a stadium I had never been to. When all was said and done the game ended up being hard faught and very compeitive and I got to see a player, who was as good as any I have watched this season.

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,
