At practice, I tend to go through the motions. When I miss the ball at practice, I feel as if it 's not important because it 's not a game. This year, I 'm going to try to have the same mentality. My coaches always tell me practice like you’re in a game, that way it comes natural. One of my other weaknesses is being lazy.
If you ask a baseball fan to name a player that really stood out to them, there is a good chance they would name one player. That player is Derek Jeter.

For as long as I can remember, my one dream has been to play major league baseball. Even though I know how much work it takes to make this happen, I wouldn’t regret it for a second. I have been playing baseball for as long as I have been able to hold a ball, but I know this dream isn’t going to be just handed to me. I know that I am going to have to continue working hard everyday but I am looking forward to it.
My parents had always tried to set me up for success, they had figured out my love of baseball while I was still at a young age. They did everything in their power to be sure I could develop as a ballplayer. My dad even went as far as flatting out our backyard and placing down a batting cage so that I could practice whenever I wanted to. Even after practicing through rainstorms, and freezing cold weather, I was still “that kid” on the team. It was my first season on the big field.
Pete Rose should be reinstated into baseball and allowed into the Cooperstown Hall of Fame as a player because he was a great player.

He holds the record for most hits, games played, at-bats, and most outs.
Michael wasn’t a born ready basketball player that everyone thought he was because of his success in the NBA. One of Michael’s coaches once said, “Jordan, interestingly, was not a “Natural” basketball player” (Johnson). The natural born talent Jordan had was playing baseball, so in order to become successful, he had to practice and work harder than others. One journalist stated,” Jordan’s high school basketball coach, Clifton Herring, picked up the young athlete each morning at 6:00 to practice the game before school” (Johnson). In contrast to not making the basketball team for his high school, Jordan worked hard everyday to get better and use the athleticism god had given him.
When I was younger, I loved to play baseball. I would join multiple leagues every year, and spend days in the summer playing pickup games with friends. Of course I had other interests, but baseball 's combination of technical and physical skill stood out to me as something that I loved. As time went on, and I became more serious about the sport, I began to realize that I was actually terrible at it. I understood the strategy and could perform any individual task, but I could never piece it together to play at even an intermediate level.
I was growing more and I wasn 't hearing things like, "You are too small," and "You are a catcher?? " It was not just what people were saying. It was how I was playing on and off the field. I felt very honored to participate in an All-Star event a few months after my baseball team’s season had started. I felt and knew in my brain that this was working.
Pitching is not a very hard concept to master,in fact the pitcher is one of the most non athletic person in college and including the MLB. After people play baseball for a while, many might want to become a pitcher, but first everybody has to learn the mechanics of pitching to become a pitcher.

Pitching to many people isn 't an easy task to learn for starters.
As a young tyke, I was much more extroverted and outgoing, compared my current social relationships, and this excitement lead to my upcoming passion for baseball. During the summer of 2009, I had just reached my 9th birthday and my best friend Nicholas and I decided to join a baseball team. Joining the baseball team was a way for both of us to get together more often to hang out and explore the world together. So as a young child who was still experiencing the world, joining sports was an entertaining way to experience what the world had to offer. Baseball was just a part of the beginning.
In this essay I am explaining how the four authors: Michael Donovan, Emerson, Thoreau, and Krakauer’s transcendental beliefs are similar. To me transcendental means your own belief and the way you see life. Michael, author of “It’s All-On-Me” says in his poem, “looks like it's time to up and start mounting a game-plan attack” he is saying everything is going wrong and needs a plan to make it all better again so Michael is going to find the best way for himself to feel better. Michael Donovan is very similar in a way with these authors, they are very independent and kind of stubborn in a way that these differences make them alike. Ralph Emerson, a very independent man who needs nobody but himself, he believes in rights as well as his
Transcendentalism is a philosophy in which thought and spirit is more real than things in the real world. This philosophy was incredibly popular in early American times. It was only natural that authors and poets of the time expressed the concept in their work. Three men however, were especially well known. Out of them were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman.
