She taught me that pitching wasn't something you can just do you have to work for it. I'm so very thankful for my coach to this very day for teaching me everything I know, without all of her help I wouldn't be the pitcher I am today. This past season was amazing! I struck out over 100 batters in 14 games which was very exciting to me, and also my batting percentage increased tremendously!! My love for the game had also increased so much throughout the hole season it was unreal.
I like to play aggressively, attacking the ball and playing my best. When you play the best, you help your team out, and you can do things you never thought you could do. Home runs were one thing I did not think I could do with many other things I thought I could not do. Since I’ve created many memories and have done things I thought I could not do, baseball is my favorite
Wow, what a great and accomplished 4 years it’s been for us. Heck, it’s been an accomplished 10 years for us. It’s been a wild ride, and as it’s almost time for me to put down my bat and put away my glove, I have some thanking to do. So, thank you for everything, for everything you’ve taught me and everything you’ve made me learn through the game of softball. In my high school softball career, I have learned many valuable things from you.
I am lucky enough to be apart of such a great fraternity and support the ALS foundation to stop this terrible disease. Lou Gehrig came from nothing and turned his life around into something great. He put in the work and became good at whatever he did. He changed the game of baseball with his talents and set records that still stand to this day. Lou overcame childhood challenges, became one of the greatest players to ever play the game, and shed a light on a terrible disease are all examples on how Lou Gehrig is a true sports
People who know me have often called me eccentric. Although one might think this description is not a compliment, to me, “eccentric” is a word that reflects perfectly on my passion for baseball. Through baseball, I have made many friends in all gender, ages, and backgrounds. My passion for baseball has also opened up doors to new learning opportunities. I worked as a three-weeks summer intern at Sports Marketing Laboratory Inc.
I get so competitive in volleyball and softball, but I enjoy the thrill. Sports are very important to me, but I hate that losing comes with the game. All of my sports have very talented and athletic players that love to win. Last year’s volleyball team made it to the finals in WPIAL but lost to Freeport. Even though I didn’t play varsity, I still super supportive and excited we made it that far.
Baseball seemed to be my life when I was a little kid. Playing catch, hitting balls, pitching, the whole nine yards. It has always a life long dream of mine to play Major League Baseball. I was a little kid with big dreams, nothing seemed to be impossible. I got older though, I started to realize some dreams were just too big.I couldn’t throw 100 MPH and didn’t have lightning fast speed.
I knew some people from Horseshoe Bend, so this was a game I actually sat down and watched. Horseshoe Bend won the game and that meant we had to play them next. I felt weird playing against someone I played with all summer. We won the game, so we get to play in the championship
My dad popped in and said, ”that was a pretty hard hit of your arms like that.” I started to laugh. After the game ended I went out on the field and high-fived the other team’s hands. My team won 25 to 1, we were so excited we jumped on each other and screamed. My whole team and I all packed up and went to the pitching mound. My coach asked, ”Reagan, are you alright?” I told her, ’’Yes, it just made me stronger.” Everybody laughed along with me.
