For a young baseball player one of the highest goals to achieve is hitting a homerun -for me that was all I wanted. I already achieved most of what I wanted in baseball, and one of my proudest was a no-hitter, but it was no home run. When I first realized how bad I wanted this feat was one night after a practice where all we did was just hit. The majority of my teammates hit at least one homerun that practice, but me I hit the fence but never was able to send one over. The car ride home after the practice was horrible, I was a mess.
“Baseball is soo easy. People play it because other sports are too hard for them.” one kid said. “You have no room to talk. You haven’t played baseball once in your life. You don’t even understand the game at all.” The kid replied with a fierce tone which really showed all the anger.
This game taught me that i can 't reflect on the unchangeable and move to the future. Reflection can be an awful thing moving on making your mind just feel clean and into a new state where you can make your dreams a vision. Basking in the glory days can 't be the only thing you can do for you lose or broken memory. Moving from there was the best thing that could have done for my career in baseball and after I moved on we won our next tournament and I forgot it all. The best thing you can do for a Challenge is try and if you fail wait till you can 't tackle
At the end of the 2013 softball season, Kelsey Bradford found herself facing a possible state champion title along with a possible surgery. It was a night filled with nervous energy, happiness, and pain. “I will never forget the feeling that I had when I stepped up to the plate as the first batter of the game. I was so nervous but so excited at the same time,” Kelsey recalled. “At the first bat of the game, I made an in the park home run.
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.
I was hoping she wouldn't hear because I knew if she heard she would be happy, way too happy. " Did you just say you were playing softball. That is amazing," she says. My mom was a pretty intense softball player. When she was a kid she was the all-star of every team.
This doesn’t do much for Troy’s defense, but it shows us what Troy does when he’s put in a corner. Troy turns to the one thing he does know, baseball. What he was trying to explain in this quote is how he has been safe and comfortable for the last eighteen years of his marriage and he was given a chance to do something thrilling and he took it. Troy is trying to compare the thrill of cheating to stealing second base after being safe at first. Troy and Cory in the story are not the loving father-son couple, they hardly see eye to eye on anything.
The Sandlot directed by David Evans was released in 1993 and has become a baseball classic (rogerebert.com). The movie breaks away from the theme that winning is the only things that matters and allows “kids to be kids” as stated by Roger Ebert in his review of the movie on his website rogerebert.com. The movie starts with a young boy moving to a new neighborhood who desperately wants to fit in but cannot find a way to do so. He hears about an eight man team that plays on a sandlot and he believes that he could be the ninth player to make a full team. There is just one
The coaches put you in stations to let you practice on your hits, catches, pitching, grounders, whatever would happen in a scenario. Everybody was mostly hitting home runs, which we call dingers, that’s how good we were with our hitting, and that’s what mostly gave us the runs, was our dingers. After we got done practicing hitting, we would practice catching pop flies and getting grounders. Outfielders would do their thing, the infielders would do their thing. Once we got done practicing that, we practiced on our throwing.
I just have to sit back and watch and it kills me inside. So you better believe me I never went another basketball camp before a baseball season started. Overall from this experience I did learn something and take something from this experience. It showed me how much love I have for the game of baseball and how much I cherish it. The pain of sitting out all those games made me realize that.
