Just a Blur Today was the day. My dad had been talking about this all season. As we walked up to the field before warm ups I was slightly more nervous than usual. They were our rivals. We had to win to prove we were the best softball team in our town. When we got to the field there were a few girls waiting for us. I sat down next to my best friend Sabrina, whose father was also a coach. We became great friends because of softball and because our dads were harder on us than anyone else on the team. When the rest of the team showed up we started warming up. We jogged down and back, did high knees, butt kicks, and every other kinesthetic warm up my dad could find online.

The first girl grounded out and then their power hitter was up. I knew her from school, she was in my class and would always brag about how she went to a fancy hitting coach.

I began to breath heavier most because I was nervous and then my sight was gone. All I saw was a black hole. It came back when I was on a stretcher getting rolled of the field. I had passed out for ten seconds. My team was doing a cheer that said we are proud of you but I was not proud. I did not get to finish the game. My mom came in the ambulance with me and my dad surprisingly left the game and drove behind
