Miracle League Narrative

Good Essays
Being involved in the community will change ones life. It was my senior year in high

school until I realized what happens when one gets involved in their community. Being involved

in the Miracle League not only helped the kids, it helped me as a person. I still remember the first time I went to the Miracle League. It was a tradition of my

baseball team to go to the Miracle League once a year. I was nervous, and did not know

what to expect. It was a steaming hot Saturday morning the day we went. I could feel the joy in

the air as I walked in the park. I walked up to the front desk and received my name tag. There I

was told that volunteering at the Miracle League was a huge contribution to the community. I did

The park was crowed as everyone cherished his last game. It was a special moment, the kids felt like rockstars.Their laughs and smiles brightened up my day. "Darryl!" I turned around and saw Jack racing full speed towards me. He gave me a high five that stung my hand, and we talked for a little while. The game was about to start, so we headed towards the field. I could smell the popcorn in the air, and Jack said he wanted some so I bought it. "Today 's my last game" said Jack "are you coming back next season?" Without hesitation I said "yes!", he was jumping with joy. After the game was I grabbed him a drink and a slice of pizza. The sound of them playing and enjoying life was awesome.I felt a tap on my shoulder."Are you Darryl?" I turned around and said "yes ma 'am." She went on to introduce herself as Jacks mom. She told me how this program helped her, and how much jack looked up to me. It made me feel good. Later, we all took pictures together and said our goodbyes. Jack didn 't want me to leave, but I told him that I 'll see him next season.Volunteering with the miracle league was life

    It also helps the little leagues grow itself, if I was a parent I would want my kid to play a little league that went to the Little League World Series. It helps bring a community together in a time where they need it the most. For example the Chicago team in 2014, they were an inner city little league that nobody thought they would make it passed the regional tournament, but they overcame it and actually made it all the way to the championship…

    Now is the time I get to shine, now is the time I have always looked forward to. I can remember going to watch the Nettleton Lady Tigers play, so I could watch Mackenzie Hawkins and Lauren Baldwyn play. I use to think that I could not wait for the day that I could be out on that field. When I was in the ninth grade, I was able to play my first varsity game in that slowpitch and fastpitch season. My ninth grade year, I hit my very first home run during that fastpitch season.…

    Jacob Cooper was indeed mad that I hit the first home run with his new bat. As I got back to the dugout it finally hit me I could take a five ounce ball and send it flying 200 feet with a twenty-one ounce piece of aluminum. In that moment I could feel the fire in my heart that longed for this sport. In that moment I felt as if I was the best. My mom came over to the dugout afterwards and told me she got a picture of the swing.…

    Another example is people always tell me that I have a really pretty smile. One time when I was in Utah this girl stopped me and told me that my smile was beautiful and that just made me smile even more. Another reason people think of me as happy is because I laugh at the stupidest things. One example is my cousin, Aaron, he’ll always just look at me and say something really random and I’ll just break out laughing. Every time he does that I laugh for like 20 minutes straight and it makes everyone else laugh.…

    I hadn’t seen many of my friends from the team over the summer, soI got to see my friends from the team one last time. For me, it was the last time I would be in front of this crowd as a Wildcat because the next week I was moving to Clinton Mississippi to play baseball at the college level for the Mississippi College Choctaws. As the athletic director started walking down the line of players and handing them there rings, I thought back on how awesome my story in the game of baseball is and how much this game has taught me. When my ring was handed to me, the excitement of another ring and finally a true sense of ownership of it was the icing on the cake but this cake was 13 years in the making. As my ring sits on my desk, to everyone else in the world, it is simple piece of metal that is hard to get.…

    It seemed like this gave him a high standard for me. So high that he put me as a starter in center field for our first game. We only had one practice before our first game. My nerves were out of control, but seeing the smile on my dad’s face and thinking about Marvin looking down from above controlled them. The first inning started we were to go out first, I was ready my mind was racing my heart was fluttering.…
