Improved Essays
It's the day! I'm so nervous, I have butterflies in my stomach and it's my first game in two years. My parents encouraged me to do my best and so did my teammates. That's what I did, I tried my best.

“You are passing really good Tina!” Solana said
“Thank you! Your are two!” I replied in a mellow voice.We continued to pass the ball back and forth.

The pitcher released the ball, I swung my bat, as soon as I felt the ball hit my bat I dropped my bat and ran as fast as I could. I touched the base and thought I was safe, but didn't know for sure. The first baseman caught the ball and touched the base as I was waiting for the ump’s call my heart was pounding “Safe” the ump called, i was relieved. Woohoo! I made it, I was so happy. Our first game, and I made it to the base, now all i got to do is get home. My teammate Hannah was up next, she hit the ball so far I got home, and she got to …show more content…
It was important to me, because I learned to never give up in a game, to encourage your teammates, and always think positive. We may have lost this game, but we still won we won as a team. No matter what you should always think positive, even if you think the result may not be as happy or good as you want it to be, but remember life isn't full of cupcakes and rainbows, it does have conflict and it does have obstacles.

    Getting up to bat, there was a runner on second base with two outs. My job was to get the top of the line up back up to bat, and that is what I did, and a little more. Swinging the bat and making contact with the ball, I knew I hit the ball solid. Jumping off the bat, the ball climbing through the air towering over the outfielders. The outfielders knew they did not have a chance of catching the ball.…

    I swung, and ended up swinging as the ball passed me. The next pitch came and I waited a second longer and smacked the ball right back at the pitcher. I ran as fast as my little legs would move. I reached first base and looked at my dad to see him jumping up and down with excitement; he was so proud of me I couldn’t help but smile back at him. As the game progressed, I had no idea how I was magically given these talents.…

We shook hands with the other team and gathered our things from the dugouts.…

    My mom came over to the dugout afterwards and told me she got a picture of the swing. I was ecstatic. My dad was proud too, I 'm sure. I wish I could have seen his face when that left fielder watched the ball travel over the fence. Maybe then he would have seen me as a baseball player as opposed to a follow-up to his first born, a son he could cheer for.…
