We were off to the airport. We flew out of Dulles Airport and got on the U.S. Airways airplane. I got the aisle seat and my dad got the seat right next to me. The trip to Boston was a good hour and a half. The plane was delayed an extra thirty minutes because it was raining like a hurricane in Boston. When the plane finally alighted to the ground, I took off the plane like a bullet. I was so excited! We got our luggage and had to get to our hotel because the game was that night! We got into a taxi and he drove us to our hotel, The Doubletree. Our room was amazing! I got a bed to myself!

Of course, the answer was “GREAT!” When we got back, all I wanted was a home-cooked meal. I got that wish and after that, all I wanted to do was thank everyone for doing this for us.
Reflecting on this trip, one thing stuck in my mind, that billboard. That billboard inspired me to do more than just play baseball. It inspired me to help others before helping yourself. I have tried to do this ever since I got back from the trip, and I
