    televised, and are a vital part for the organization to make a profit. All the action and excitement of baseball is implemented by how hard the pitcher throws or how far the batter can hit the ball. With this excitement comes a lot of danger that a spectator wouldn’t think about. What if the pitch hits the batter in the face? What if a line drive hits the pitcher in the head?

    For the last few years of my life, I have been on my school’s PSAL Baseball team playing third base. And, while playing baseball generally requires an abundance of skill in applying critical thinking, one incident during my time with the team stands out to me. It was a sunny spring day in Brooklyn with a gentle breeze picking up the dirt of the field and carrying it off towards the New York high rises around the fields. At the time, our team was undefeated and, since none of the games were close…

    comment to explain to me of how dependent I am on these upcoming moments for the team, so don’t make it any worse. To start off and to have the power to set the tone of the whole inning. I have never studied on another human being as much as I did the pitcher that I was soon to be up against.

    tournament after tournament. Playing first base, I always admired the position at the center of the field, the pitcher. It seemed that games could be won and lost based solely on that position. I both craved and shied away from the pressure.

    I got my bat and batting gloves and went and took some hacks off the tee to get loose, then did soft toss so I could get my timing down because the pitcher was going to be throwing hard. After I hit I get my cleats and lace them tight on my feet. I did my leg stretches I do before every game so I don’t pull any muscles.

    I played sophomore baseball for Senior over the summer. It was the best season I've ever had as a Dubuque Senior High School baseball player. I was the pitcher on the team, also known as the "Ace". Before the last couple of games we had an anonymous team vote on which award people should get. At the end of the season we had a potluck with the varsity team and the sophomore team. Everyone showed up with haircuts and their parents. When I got there I just saw everyone in a circle talking to each…
