Personal Narrative: My First Game

Improved Essays
It was the second game of the night. We had won the first game. They had a slow pitcher who was easy to get runs off which is basically why we won. But this was a new game. We were facing the Dallas Raiders which were very good. We started the game batting because we were the away team. The Raiders defence took the field. Their pitcher picked up the ball and started to warm up on the mound. After he threw the first pitch, my stomach dropped. He was throwing fast. My coach being the way he is, starts telling us that we can hit this guy and that it's not fast, but I knew I would not get a hit off this guy.

It was hit so hard I only got a single out of it but it scored two runs. They took out that pitcher after we walked the next batter and we got another 4 runs of that pitcher. We won the game 8-4. I realized that sometimes when you really want something you just have to be courageous and follow through with it. In this case, regretting something hurts more than real

    brothers who were and still are very much into sports. They would always watch the games on the television, and they never let me watch what I wanted. That resulted in me being a pretty big sports fan myself. With football being on the top of the list. So, when I finally got the opportunity to go to an actual game; I absolutely took it. It was game 9 against the San Diego chargers, and I was extremely excited about the game. In fact I was so excited I didn’t get any sleep night before. Instead I stayed…

    It all started with a stretch. Game day had arrived, and as a team, we were all ready to go out and kill it. We had already gotten dressed in our new uniforms, stretched, and finished warming up our legs in the Pequot Lakes High School hallway. Pequot had a great volleyball program, along with some great players, so we knew that the match against them would be a tough one.
