Personal Narrative: My Love For Baseball

Decent Essays
From the crack of the bat to the smack of the glove and the dirty basebal pants. This game is what I love . The moment i first played i've been “ as gifted.” I'm a 5 to a player, I have a good arm, great glove, some speed, i can hit, and i can hit for power. My dream is to be the best baseball player ever.

Baseball is a long vigorous path that many attempt but never will reach the show. First i must make the Freshman team, or even better JV or Varsity.

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. If it wasn't for my momma and great coach i would not be as good as a ball player i am. They’ve kept me going even when i’ve wanted to stop. Im forever grateful of these people, if it weren't for them i would not truly believe in
