but I never thought it would be as challenging as it has been for me this year. Softball is a big part of my life and who I am, but should I have to be as dedicated as my coaches make me be? I am a freshmen at American River this year I am attending school and playing softball. When I decided to play softball I new it was going to be a lot of time and hard work. But what I did not realize was all of the things I was going to give up. As a team we have six days straight of softball a week and someday it will be practice which are at least three hours.
The name stuck with him and from that point forward he was called Babe instead of George (Ruth’s). While playing with the Ravens he performed very well leading to him being sold to the Major League team the Boston RedSoxs. Even though Babe is known for his hitting back in the Majors, he started out as a pitcher. Babe won his major league debut in July of 1914. The only issue was that the Red Sox’s roster was full, so Ruth was moved to their Minor league team the Providence Grays.
To make things a bit more complicated my high school coach had been my coach my entire softball career. He knew how I thought, how i played, and really molded me into the player I am today. I soon graduated from my little league summer softball to the competitive nature of highschool ball. As a freshman I knew I was going to be overlooked. Too much of my surprise I was placed on varsity for my pitching abilities.
In the first game of the tournament I was playing left. A girl was up to bat and popped the ball up to me. I caught it and threw it to 2nd and got that girl out too. Throughout that year I recorded more double plays, and almost all of them were in the same style as the initial one. I feel very admirable when I make a good defensive play to help the team win.
His response was simple but set the tone for my new mindset for the rest of my baseball career. He told me that all I had to do to get better at baseball was “work hard”. With this new thought in my head I went to practice with one goal in my head, to “work hard”. At times during those that first month of practice, I started to lose sight of this new vision my dad had given me, but was refreshed fully when I started to notice changes in my baseball skills. I started to pick up the pace more and more everyday.

As I shifted the ball into my hands I shifted my feet into position and gunned it towards my coach. Right in the chest, a near perfect throw. The rest of the practice went on after that and we went to hitting. I’d been a little rusty since my last at-bats. When the ball came in I felt the breeze my bat gave off as I swung my bat and connected with the ball.
Good evening parents. Gathered here today are the mothers and fathers of this youth sports club, discussing the possible change to competitive sports. I remember when I was 6 years old. My father and mother signed me up for pee-wee baseball that year, T-ball. I gained many friendships from that sport.

The quote, “ Everyday is a new opportunity. You can either build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start over again. That is the way life is, with a new game everyday, and that is the way baseball is.” - Bob Feller. That quote has irony on how to be successful, likewise that baseball has helped me become successful.
I believe in baseball. Baseball allows many people to enter the doors of competition through recreation with others. My first year of baseball I didn’t have a care in the world, I would run with my head up so my helmet would fall off and I would kick up dust into the fielder’s face. Now I play with burning ambition and act like there isn’t any other place in the world i’d rather be when I am on the field. This impressive game has changed my life.
Born and raised in Philadelphia I had that competitive city kid attitude. I was different though which made me more competitive from the rest. If it was as simply as someone walking next to me on the sidewalk towards the street I would still wanna beat them there. I never lost that instinct and I am proud of it. Being the best at anything and everything is my goal.
