In my life, nothing has taught me more about life than the game of baseball. When you play a game that is about winning and losing since early childhood, you will be able to handle the winning and losing of life a lot easier. Losing always make players dream of what it would be like to win a championship and be the best at there game. I experienced the ups and down’s of this game all to well, and wouldn’t be that person I am today without it. In my first year of kindergarten, I played league ball in the spring and fell in love for the first time with the game of baseball. Spring baseball ended up not being enough after my second year in the sport. Eventually, I began playing in the spring and in a fall league. I did this for a couple …show more content…
If there was one thing I was used to by now, it was that whenever something didn’t go well for me on the baseball field, the future holds green pastures only if I go looking for it. So sure enough, after that loss, I set my eyes ahead to the next season. That final season we had a great start, winning a lot of games, but we ended up barely making the playoff as somewhat of an underdog. We didn’t think about anything that was at stake, we simply played our game all the way to the championship game without a loss in the playoffs.

I hadn’t seen many of my friends from the team over the summer, soI got to see my friends from the team one last time.

As the athletic director started walking down the line of players and handing them there rings, I thought back on how awesome my story in the game of baseball is and how much this game has taught me. When my ring was handed to me, the excitement of another ring and finally a true sense of ownership of it was the icing on the cake but this cake was 13 years in the making. As my ring sits on my desk, to everyone else in the world, it is simple piece of metal that is hard to get. To me, it is a symbol of years of hard work and trials and of all the things I had learned from the game wrapped up into one

    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.…
