They told me that everything would be alright. My mother told me about Lou Brock, an amazing baseball player. He did not make any school baseball team, but he still became talented. I was skeptical at first, but my parents reassured me. I was inspired by this story, and I promised myself that my practices will be of high quality and quantity.
Ever since I could remember sports have ruled my life. When I was a young boy I played football and baseball. I loved playing both of these games tremendously. As I grew older I distanced myself away from football as I wanted to focus solely on baseball. Although I stopped playing football in the sixth grade, it taught me many things I will never forget.
Altogether my family has showed me to try new things and have allowed me to see new places that I have never seen before . Even though I have played sports , made amazing friendships , and spent a lot of time with family . There are things I have yet to do . Like make more friendships , or play a new sport , or go to Hawaii with my family . As I grow up I will pursue my dreams of being a mlb player .
In the middle of stretching the varsity coach shouted at me, “Green! Get your ass over here and run!” I ran down the 3rd base line and stood next to coach. “I loved your work in the off season and I think you can find a starting spot on varsity.” My face gleamed with joy, I told thanked him and started warming up with the varsity squad. My first few varsity games I was the most nervous I have ever been in my life. When playing varsity baseball you are not only playing for your team, you are also playing for your community.
"Thousands cheering the synchrony from their seats or sofas can really make you feel like a part of something" (NFL). This "something" is a community, a widespread belief that the collective support and appreciation for national football is such a unitary force that divisions between anything other than favorite teams cease to hold any influence. Viewers in the stadium, in a restaurant, or on the street, are provided a medium through which they have a sense of togetherness and camaraderie. Fans want to see their team succeed, and the sport provides a healthy bucket within which viewers can pour their support and wants, all to see victory at the highest of echelons. Football also represents and acts as a reliable distraction from the problems faced by millions of Americans in their daily lives.
Roberto Clemente: One of the Greatest to Ever Live Roberto Clemente once said, “Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don’t, then you are wasting your time on Earth,” (Big Think Editors). The grand majority of people on Earth would not devote themselves to impacting the world forever. In fact, many people today shun the needs of those who need their help most. However, Clemente based his entire existence upon this single quote, and consequently left an ever-lasting impact on the world. Society as a whole has benefitted from Roberto Clemente due to his baseball accolades, his charitable acts, and his role in ending segregation.
That happened but the ups and downs Danny had were all throughout the story. Coming back to what Danny said “Darryl is the only reason it does not kill me that I’m not playing short. (Lupica 50).” This explains that because before Darryl said anything Danny did not want to deal with any baseball until Darryl sat down and talked to him. Danny went from hating his life to becoming one of the best baseball players and creating a future for baseball. The external and internal conflicts turned out to be a great thing for Danny and Darryl.
Being an American is living life how you see fit. A birthplace is only necessary to fill out legalities, it does not determine who you are as a person. Only you can decide that. Do you want to parade your personality to everyone or cower and conform to society’s expectations? Do you want to be afraid of the new or embrace it with open arms?
Misjudged On a hot sunny day at the baseball field I was trying out for the carolina lining and the coach that was their did not believe that i could play good baseball but when we started practicing it looked as if I was the best player on the team and the coach was looking at my dad and was nodding well I figured that he wanted me on the team but even after that I still put one hundred percent on the field every time I put my foot on a baseball field and that is why i 'm still playing of the carolina lining.

Final 3 review with John My father was less worried about my dreams when he decided to walk out of my life to concentrate on his issues. I was only nine years old with great interests in baseball that needed his encouragement and guidance during my training. I communicated to my mother, my desire to pitch and that I would never be good because I needed my father to teach me. That day I learned one of the most valuable things in my life she told me to never take the easy way out and blame someone else for not accomplishing your dreams. She told me to achieve a goal you must develop a plan.

Baseball thought that Jeter was one of a kind and wanted him to play forever. Jeter made a promise to Baseball as a young kid that he would play till the day he died.
Living in a country where everyone is different how would one describe what it means to be American? We pride ourselves with being a big melting pot. With different traditions, cultures, and races, but what exactly does being American mean? Is it patriotism in our country, freedom, and having a democratic government? These things are what being American means to me.
