Personal Narrative: Triple Play

It was a normal Saturday for my team, the Montgomery Rebels, at Lagoon Park, and there was not a cloud in the sky. My team and I were about to play a team called Triple Play (despite the name they could barely get a double play.) My coach, also known as my dad, came up to me and said, “Does your arm feel good?” Of course I responded, “Yes! “Well good, you are pitching this game.” I was elated. I absolutely, positively love to pitch. Even though this was a pool play game I was still happy because I got to pitch. So, I warmed up and was doing great. The game was about to start and we were the home team, so I go up to the mound and pitch. The first batter is up, “Ball one!” yelled the umpire.

I sprinted around the bases as fast as I could. I rounded third, and saw my team at home. I had just hit a homerun! My dad said as I passed by him, “Nice hit.”I didn’t stop running though it didn’t faze me until I had got in the dugout. Everyone had congratulated me on my …show more content…

On the bright side we scored eight runs that inning. So, I went up to the mound with a different attitude. I struck out everybody, but one who scored. I had pitched the entire game. We went on to win that tournament. Today I realize I should have slowed down to enjoy that moment (now I am lucky if I even get a hit.) I now know to slow down and to enjoy any moment because it will not last. I also now try to have more confidence, as I struggle every day worrying that I am not good enough for anything. I miss this moment. I try to relive it, but I am
