Personal Narrative: My Life As A Baseball Athlete

Superior Essays
Baseball brings passion, pain, and excitement to people all over the world; from little kids that run the bases at a major league baseball game to a previous President of the United States that throws the first pitch. Baseball is one word in which would describe my identity. The pain that I endured, the struggle that I overcame, and the championships I won have truly made me the person I am today.

Our first day consisted of warm ups and achieving are maxes in pullups, speed, weights, and broad jump.

    I was the one the team looked forward to scoring the runs and winning the games. Only being eight years old, and my teammates and our fans counting on me put more than enough pressure on me; so much I could not handle it sometimes. I remember being up to bat the bases were loaded, and there was two outs. We was down by one run, I had the chance to win the game. My daddy had pulled me to the side, and said, “You are going to have a chance to win this game, believe in yourself, and you can do it.” Getting in the box, I was scared to death.…

    Practice for Baseball has always been fun for me, I feel as though I was made for this sport!! Having fun with teammates practicing and working out I've enjoyed the more I get older and become the “ leader.” Working out will help avoid and heal injuries. Working out has to take the mindset of never stopping til you’ve reached your goal like specific set of rep or in my case, making it to the Pro’s and being one of the great. From the day I was born, to my first practice to my first home run and my last game as a pro my momma will always be there supporting her “baby boy.” She’s the greatest person in my life and the reason why i am, why I’m good, and why I’ll be the great.

    We make it to state in Appleton. Our first game we play is against Marathon.
