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.
Jackie Robinson In my opinion I think a hero is a person that changes lives forever.

But my course in life has switched courses. Along the way, I dropped off the other sports and continued on with America’s Favorite Past time: Baseball. Since my size dictated my playing time, according to the coaches, it affected my devotion to the game because it is heartbreaking to be told you cannot do something. Over that period of time I realized how influential coaches are to their player, so I decided to become a coach to instill the never quit attitude in younger player’s minds. I have been coaching with Boca Raton Little League Baseball since my sophomore year, teaching the fundamental skills of baseball
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.

To play for your country and to wear those 3 letters on your chest is an honor and a privilege and I was the one person that passed up that offer and I regret it so much.

Pulling up to the field, greener than ever, lights were shining, I didn 't feel good but I wouldn’t miss baseball for my life! We were playing the best team in the league so I was kind of nervous. As we were playing catch, the coach announced the batting lineup and my name came second! I was batting second, I couldn’t believe it, maybe coach had some faith in me after all.
