As the end of the top half of the first inning was coming to the end, the bases were loaded, two outs and I was up to bat. It was a pitcher to pitcher battle. First pitch was a ball, second pitch I swung at and missed, then I worked the count to two balls and two strikes. The next pitch I foul off and breathe as I know I still have a chance to knock in some more runs. A few pitches later I’m still fouling them off and keeping myself alive in the battle.
Sara McKenna Comp and Lit 1 It's sweltering hot out, at least 95 degrees with no breeze or shade. I feel nothing but the sun reflecting off my skin and sweat dripping down my face. My teammates and fans are cheering me on along with my coach, who happens to be my father, telling me to "Push it!" I play this scenario over and over again hoping it will ease the pressure, but nothing could have prepared me for this moment. Bottom of the seventh inning, bases loaded, two outs, my team is up by one run, and the count on the batter is three balls and two strikes.
At that moment I realize no one in the field is moving, I also notice my team hollering as they run out of the dug out. I slow down to a nice jog and I’m in amazement of the fact, I just hit a home run. A girl in boy’s baseball, and I just hit a bomb? “Thump”, was the sound of both my feet hitting home plate, something that was at one time unimaginable. Only to make this experience even better, I was later informed that I was the first girl in Nevada to hit an out of the park homerun in a sanctioned baseball game.

I couldn’t get over the fact that I was about to leave my family, friends, and my home. I knew this move would mean new home, school, and friends. A new start meant new living arrangements. We arrived in Dayton in early August of 2010. Not only was school around the corner but still, we had to find a place to stay.
Every time I go to a game at Wrigley, I feel like I am in another time zone. From the hand-operated scoreboard and the ivy on the walls, to the sounds of baseball on the organ, the atmosphere of this field is something ever American should witness. You get the feeling it is baseball when you walk up the stairs that takes you to the field. I can go to U.S. Cellular Field that has more services such as the ear-popping songs and all the scoreboard videos all I want, but I will never get the same feeling and smells at the place of Wrigley Field. I can only imagine that those same smells and feelings I get when I go to Wrigley are the same smells and feelings when sitting in Yankee Stadium.

There is an electric feeling in the air as soon as you get out of your car in the parking lot. When the game starts, the fans are going crazy from the first pitch. There is nothing more exciting than waving the rally towel in the air as the Cardinals get the final out. My favorite days are the days that I am privileged enough to go to Busch Stadium and watch a baseball game. The St. Louis Cardinals are one of the best franchises in all of baseball and I have always been a huge fan.
