Personal Narrative: My Dream Of Playing Baseball

I’ve always loved the crack of the bat and the pop of a baseball in a worn leather glove. The first warm day of Spring finds me yearning for the baseball field. I long to strap on the catcher’s gear and adjust it so everything fits just perfectly. I daydream of playing in big games and giving baseball my all. However, the Spring of 2017 wasn’t just a dream of playing baseball. Playing baseball became very real when we earned the opportunity to play in the championship game of the Roff Tournament.

I’m in battle mode and swinging at anything close.

We go into extra innings and the umpire makes another bad call and the bases are loaded. Me and everyone else is furious at the ump so Coach Shoaf comes out to the mound to calm all of us down and he tells us we are going to pick off the runner at first because he’s sleeping over there.
