I had to prove my skills to my new coaches because I was smaller than the rest of the kids and didn’t have the same knowledge or experience they did. After try-outs my new coach had approached my dad and told him that they where very excited to have me on there team, and with time and practice my skill would improve even more. The hardest part of playing with the older kids was that I was no longer hitting a ball of the T, but now the kids where the pitchers. Even after practice 4 days a week my dad would take me to the park and throw, what seemed like a hundred baseballs, to me and I would practice my hitting. It didn’t take long for my hand-eye coordination to develop and hitting a baseball thrown at me was no longer a problem.
The Influence of Baseball As a parent sits in the hot sun watching children strike out and miss the pop flies, the parent may wonder why they want their child to play baseball. I want to introduce you to Alexander. He has played baseball for seven years. Before he started playing baseball, he was a clumsy and lazy troublemaker that did not have any friends. Every day of his life was a struggle for him not to get in trouble, whether it was being written up in school or suspended for talking back to teachers.
This year playing football for Springfield is not the same as last year in high school because I’m not as close with the people on my college team. Last year we had so many exciting games being the top team in New York. I specifically remember the game--we played St. Anthony’s to open up the season. I remember that game perfectly like it happened yesterday. St. Anthony’s usually beats us, but it’s a close game every single time.
Their 2013 season was as dismal as their last ten seasons, in last place in the national league’s central division with a record of 66-96. So why do fans still come to Wrigley, to watch the team of lovable losers? Wouldn’t they rather see a team winning and being successful? The answer may lay in being optimistic. The Cubs were always positive, even when they blew a seven run lead in the 2003 national league division series, even when they lost the 1946 World Series in heartbreaking fashion on Jack Spinner’s walk off home run in game 7 against the Brewers, even when the team’s slugger Sammy Sosa was found guilty of steroid usage and was suspended, the Cubs and their fans still remained contended, even optimistic about their team’s chances to win the Central and go to the playoffs.
These are fans that truly have a favorite team, and really care about how their team’s performance throughout the season. You will never see a die-hard fan cheer for any other team other than his or her favorite. Die-hard fans are the ones you see at the games at eight o clock in the morning, when the game does not start until five or six o clock at night. These fans usually have season tickets to all home games. Die-hard
We open up for Old Say brook high school the score was 45-0 and yes we were the winners. The whole season was just about that; Hyde the winners and the opponents the losers. We made it all the way to be the number one seed in the class s state playoffs. We went through the whole regular season undefeated, but that last game which was the first playoff game we lost not because they were better but because we were not focused on the task at hand. To be honest I do not take losing easy but when it was all over I have to say this was a character builder it tells me to stay focused and when on a team I need to pull my teammates a long with
I think that his good start has been a fluke and that he will soon drop off to the poor talent level that he’s played at his entire life. Tony Romo was the quarterback of the Burlington Demons his junior and senior year of High School. (Flores, 2) Romo could not lead the Demons to a winning record in either year. He did however, make the all-county team, and was an honorable mention for all-state basketball. (Layden, 1) So he was almost good in High School, but not really at all.
Throughout my young life many things has happened and plenty of things that I cherish, I was given the opportunity to do it one things that I cherish a lot is the sport of Baseball. I went from being the starting third baseman in my sophomore year to team captain in my senior year of high school. My history of baseball didn’t start from when I was little playing catch with my dad in the backyard. It all started with a simple question by my History teach in middle school. The sport of baseball was never an interest of mine until I gave it a chance.
The Yankees have been in the playoffs every year since 1995, with the exception of 2008, and the Phillies have been there every year since 2007. Their excellent pitching staff is what took them there. A baseball team without a capable pitching staff, physically and mentally, is destined to end up on the losing side when the season comes to a close. The defensive and offensive sides of the ball are close to an equal amount of importance. The pitcher, however, is arguably the most important position on the field.
Underage Drinking Living the dream was only the tip of the ice-berg which was my life. Captain of the Varsity softball team and a proud honor roll student, I never thought that life would ever change; if so, not for the worst. I had no idea that a small decision could turn my world upside down. I have replayed the decision in my head millions of times, each time assembling a better choice. It happened in 2007 summer time; I was home alone.
