If there is one thing I hate it has to be losing. With that thought pumping threw my brain, it drove me to train harder than I have ever before. Every day and night I did, 1000 push-ups for more power. After my morning push-ups, I would go outside to a fence post with a tire tied around it and practice my bat speed and batting footwork. Sometimes when my dad comes home on time I can go to the batting cages ,and work on my soon to be perfect swing.
This is a tenth of a second more than a softball pitcher; giving a baseball pitcher over 25% more time to react! Since there is a smaller distance between bases in softball, the fielders have less time to react to a hit ball and complete the play. The collegiate softball players run from home to first in a time of about 2.7 seconds. The average collegiate baseball player runs to first in 4.4 seconds. So obviously softball fielders have to react quicker to make the plays.
This means that if a 3rd baseman takes more than 1.5 seconds to field a ball it becomes virtually impossible to throw the runner out because she would have to release the ball at 100 mph. You also have to consider base stealing, even with rules against leading off a quick runner can get from 1st to 2nd in just three seconds. This means a softball catcher has to get a throw off 1/10 of a second faster than a MLB catcher does. The final reason softball is harder than baseball is because of the pitching. A 100 mph fastball in baseball generates a force of 2,411 pounds.
A couple of friends were there already so we got our arms loose and started our sprints man those things were so tiring. I went to the dugout to chill. Write as I was just about in my dad said,”Wyatt you 're pitching.” I said in my dang it because I didn 't know what was. Then I jogged to him he had a white and gray catchers glove on. He told me to throw a fast ball and I hurled the ball write were his glove was.
He wasn’t only responsible for possibly the greatest baseball era this world has ever seen, he is responsible for paving a way for new African Americans to join the league. Barry Bonds, a former African American player, said he wouldn’t have had even the slightest bit of courage if it weren’t for Jackie Robinson’s amazing legacy. Jackie even showed his sense of courage to people off the field. Becoming a great roll model to kids around the world,”Little kids loved me so I gave them something to watch.” (Jackie Robinson Interviewed.) Through all of Jackie’s problems with not only other teams, even on his own team.
Hall of fame was one of the most important ending of Robinsons career. With him being selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame and the struggles he faced with it. b. Hall of fame is a rare award to get and Jackie Robinson won that award i. “He knew that being selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame in a player’s first year of eligibility was a rare honor” ii.
Most people will agree that pitching is the key to success for a baseball team because pitchers control the tempo of the game "Pitching as the old cliché goes, is somewhere between 75 and 90% of baseball." If the pitcher is not in sync, the rest of the team will be off beat. Generally, the team with a better prepared pitching staff succeeds. For a pitcher to be prepared, that pitcher must know the proper techniques to perform perfectly. One technique a pitcher needs to be perfect is his windup.
But Let’s face it sometimes we dread the season to begin. Who will the coach be? Is my child going to play? Is my child as talented as other peers his age? There are other things besides talent that make a great baseball player.
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.
Once the ball is placed onto the field it becomes much harder for the fielder to field the ball and get the batter out than before. Before the slap hitting really developed into what it is today the hitter was really only able to place the ball softly on the ground. As this hitting style has developed over the years slap hitting has become even harder to predict. Coaches and players are having to study the way that slap hitter is hitting in order to fully know where she is going to hit the ball. For example, a batter who hits standing out right is more likely to hit the ball into the same position time and time again.
