Personal Essay: My Most Successful Player

Improved Essays
Many people are born wishing one day they would earn a trophy or medal for doing something they enjoy doing the most. While some people show off their medals and or trophy, others keep it a secret. They never tell anyone about it, and it is hard for everyone else to figure it out. I am not that type of person, because every time I do something not everyone can do, I like to people so they can know all about my accomplishment. In this particular situation, I won a trophy for being the most valuable player and for scoring the last runs to get the win, which I also told many people about whenever I had the chance.
To start off, this all started when I was in elementary school, in my town they always had after school activities. In these after school activities, children were able to play any sport of their interest, and if they did not like playing sports, then they would paint or do art and craft.

    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.…

    I had no idea if this would last a season or if it would last forever. However, it was extremely hard to explain this choice to people other than my immediate family. My extended family, teammates, coaches, and friends only saw my talent, and didn’t understand why I would want to throw that away. But what they didn’t see was the freedom I felt after I quit softball. I no longer had this burden on me.…

    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. She’s the greatest motivator and greatest coach i will ever have.…
