There have been many hours of hard work, travel and money spent on my training and I’m grateful for the opportunity provided to me as such a little girl with a big dream. Today I’m still playing softball and I’ve come a long way on my journey to becoming a college athlete. I’m only fourteen, but have many years ahead of me to become the athlete I need to be. One day I will play for the University of Arizona or the University of Alabama but until then, I will continue to work hard, play well and just train for the day that my dream will come true. When I younger, I remember playing outside in the sunshine, riding my bike, or jumping on the trampoline but what stands out the most to me was the day my dad took me to sign up for the local little league softball team.
The girls were executing every play to perfection. We won the game, silencing a team of seniors who had taunted us for weeks before the game. Almost sweeter than our decisive win, I realized, was the fact that we were celebrating our win as a group of close friends, many of whom we had just made a few short months
She has taught me so many things and has always been there for me on and off the field, she is someone that I can really look up to. ------------------------------------------------- Softball has always been a passion of mine; it’s what my life revolves around. I was always very excited for high school, especially softball. When I broke my leg Freshman year and couldn’t play, I was very sad,
Strike Zone Pitching Instructing Business Megan Spence 1 Executive Summary Strike Zone is a pitching instructing business. My name is Megan Spence and my father James Spence is my business partner. Strike Zone will be very successful because my father and I have so much experience in this industry. I was a pitcher in high school and newcomer of the year, 1st team all-district and the highlight of my high school career I was awarded district pitcher of the year. I also pitched in college at Northwood University, so I know what it takes to become a great pitcher and my father has been a fast pitch softball umpire for 12 years, he has a great deal of in depth knowledge of the game and the rules.
Before I was even born, sports were in my life. My mom and dad played in a softball league and played before she knew she was pregnant. When she found out she still went to cheer my father on and when she had me she took me to every single game since I was born. My parents gave me every opportunity to do whatever I wanted; I've played and tried almost every sport. I love sports and I love staying active.
He won the Golden Glove award in 1962. He was an amazing all around player, and just so elegant in the game of baseball. He was always the hardest worker in practice, and he put a lot of time in day after day to become the best player he could be and live up to his full potential. boy did it pay off. Mantle played in twelve world series, and came out on top seven of those twelve times.
I remember walking up to the bulletin board after that first day with my hands shaking. After I ran my shaky finger down the list and saw my name was still there I breathed a sigh of relief, and ran to the car to tell my mom. The second day of tryouts was more intense, but I made it through. Finally, on the last day of tryouts and those of us left were split into teams for a scrimmage. This was the day I was most afraid of because it meant I had to hit against a pitcher who was my age and after watching her warm up I could read that she was not completely in control of her pitches.
when school was over that day, i had gotten so many good feedbacks from kids i knew and some i never seen around before. the news went through Centennial Elementary School so quick i felt lke a superstar being greeted from so many people. i met alot of new friends and i was happy i did accept the boys challenge. it broke me out of my shell and ever since then i wasnt scared to do something daring but was still smart about what i choose. im still shy to a certain point still to this day, but not as shy as i was before thanks to that stunt i had to pull off in fourth
Their starting line up consists of two seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore, all who were part of the championship team last year. This experienced combination of players will be a lethal hit to any team that is in their way. Russ Smith is the driving force that propels this team. He has all the skills it takes to keep the team together and has helped amass such a great run at the end of their season, with a 42-point outbreak against Houston two weeks earlier. The Louisville Cardinals are not going down this year; they will fly all the way to the top.
This is not true from my experience. At Florida Institute of Technology and Webster University I was a student athlete, pitched on the baseball team and was successful on the field in my 4 years and that was all because I put in the time to improve my skills. This does not simply come by showing up at the field at 3:00 pm and lazily shagging some flyballs and playing a little catch. I believe that there is a direct connection between input and output in every phase of life. If I put enough time into my classes I will likely do well in them.
