Baseball and sports in general give the people who play it a niche in life. Right now baseball is my niche and that I need to keep playing at all cost. It won’t come until baseball has opened up new doors of opportunity then I will leave the ball player lifestyle. It has given me and many more a reason to strive for greatness and succeed. I don’t think I have the grades I do now if baseball wasn’t here.
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
There are other things besides talent that make a great baseball player. You can have all the talent be naturally gifted as a baseball player. But if your not coachable, if you don’t listen to what the coaches are teaching you, if you have a bad attitude, if your a egocentric player instead of a team player. Well then most
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.
When I was playing baseball I wasn’t happy; it was complete torture. When I was in cross country practice I loved life. I knew it was what I wanted to do, not baseball. “I just don’t know how to leave baseball; my dad loves that I play his favorite sport.” I spoke to my mom and she suggested I enjoy my high school career doing something I enjoy. My decision is clear but I just don’t know how to tell my dad; sometimes we are concerned about other people’s feelings, that we don’t do what we truly love.
I loved that the speaker did not want to make a putty speech about him retiring from playing baseball. Instead he told his story about being lucky. Be great fun for knowing so many great people and players. Thankful he got to suit up so many times to play he game of baseball. When reading about Gehrig before reading his speech, I found out that he retired because of a disease that was crippling and is now named after him.
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 love baseball, it takes up a lot of my time. When I’m bored I enjoy taking a ball and bouncing it against the house and catching it or practicing ground ball techniques. Everyone has a love for something they like to do. You ask anyone in the NFL or professional sports some will
