I had him throw a couple more fastballs just so that the batter would think that’s our last route. Then I called the change up. The batter had been so far in front of it it was really funny. The tying run was up to bat. The first pitch he had hit the ball far into right field.
As I shifted the ball into my hands I shifted my feet into position and gunned it towards my coach. Right in the chest, a near perfect throw. The rest of the practice went on after that and we went to hitting. I’d been a little rusty since my last at-bats. When the ball came in I felt the breeze my bat gave off as I swung my bat and connected with the ball.
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.
When I got on base, I stole third with one out in the inning. The next batter hit the ball to the outfielder, but it was right at the fielder. I tried to score, but the throw was on point and I got out. My mom told me good job and that made me feel better. My coach told me the it was a good attempt.
We had to whatever it took to win this game. With one single crack of the bat, I was off! The ball made it right over the head of the third basemen and the left fielder completely misjudged it, he gave me 10 extra feet! The crowd was boisterous! Screaming my name and cheering me on.
The second batter, strikes out. Then next thing I know is there is two people in front of me before I am up to bat. So I get in my bag to get my batting gloves, helmet, and everything else I needed to go hit. I stand towards the front of the dugout till it is my turn to take some practice swings in the on-deck circle. The batter that was up got walked and now it was my time to do my pre-hit routine in the batters box.
Galusky drove a two-run blast over the left field wall, scoring Braden Zarbnisky. Continuing his dominance, Grove sat down TCU in order in the third. And the Mountaineers followed suite with a two-run bomb from Kyle Davis. However, the Horned Frogs showed why they are one of the nation 's top teams and battled back. With two outs, Luken Baker singled through the left side, knocking in Cam Warner.
After leaving one runner on second in the previous inning, the eighth looked as if the Boom would at least tie, if not take the lead. Daniel Sweet (Dallas Baptist), Michael Gizzi (State College of Florida) and Matt Gandy (Creighton) worked consecutive base-on-balls to load the bases with no one out. Sanford made a pitching change, with Cody Henry (Alabama) coming to the plate. He lined a frozen rope over a ducking Gizzi, right at the short stop, who beat Gizzi back to the second base bag, for the double play. Sweet scampered home, as the first pitch of Garrett Wolforth’s (Dallas Baptist) at-bat, got away from the catcher.
"I really, really believed that one run was going to win it," WVU head coach Randy Mazey said. "I thought after five innings of this game, it was going to be 1-0 because their guy was so good and Chad was so good and all of a sudden, somehow, against every law of averages that exists, they managed to get five hits in a row." Early on Donato was dominant on the mound. He had five strikeouts in the first two frames and tied a career-high of 10 with a strikeout to start the fifth. The Paladins ' Will Gaddis (5-2) was just as efficient.
Softball In my my paper I will tell you why you, or other people should play softball. Softball is fun to play, in my opinion, and I think that if you tried it you could have fun or become a fantastic softball player. If you just tried softball and decide to keep at it you could become one of the greatest softball players that ever lived, so that is why I think that you should just try it. Softball is a sport played by women unless it is coed then it can also be played with men. There is two teams of 9, one on the field and one hitting.
It was a inning ending double play. I was starting to feel that we could do this and that we could actually win this game. But we knew it would be difficult without any of our good pitchers being available to pitch. It was the final inning of the game we had our best pitcher on the team out to throw the last inning. We all thought this was going to be an easy win from hear.
Riley Timmons Mr.Forbes September 16, 2015 4th Hour Personal Narrative Broken Baseball Player The general definition of a teammate is a person who works with their team towards a common goal. Now what kind of teammate would I be if I stopped helping my baseball squad achieve their goal, just because I was injured? I tried to picture what the game would be like in my head; me sitting in the stands while my team lost the tournament. The fill-in pitcher for my team threw the batter an easy ball, resulting in another home run. It was probably 14-2 by now.
