    reason is my grandpa Wes was a Yankees fan so I thought to carry the tradition. But overall it is fun to watch the Yankees play because you really never know what is going to happen. They are an exciting young team. As a baseball player I am a pitcher, shortstop. But when I grow up I want to play at 3rd base or the outfield. I want to play these positions because some of my favorite players play there. Like Mickey Mantle, Aaron Judge, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, or at 3rd base Nolan Arenado, and…

    meanwhile those without a space set up lawn chairs around the outfield fence. Every single person at the field, whether they have played baseball since they 6 years old or have never even watched a game before, could feel the tension while the pitcher, an average-height 17 year old, proceeded into his stretch to deliver the pitch. As time seemingly froze in these seconds, the countless hours of practice at this field alone in the late hours came bolting down the basepath. An empty…

    Sometimes the umpires may call against you in a close call, but you can’t let affect your playing. It may be a tied game in the last innings and you’re up to bat, you are gonna want a fastball straight down the middle. The pitcher is most likely not gonna pitch a fastball, especially down the middle. You could expect the other team to miss the ball, but instead they catch the ball and get you out. You could expect to go up and hit the ball, but instead you strike out. You could…

I swung, then the bat and the ball collided with a clank. The ball reversed its direction in the air, and…

Are there any curves of life coming your way? This is my first pitch. A great pitcher will have at least 7 to 11 different types of forms and movements as well as speeds and angles.

    to change positions when needed. It looks like a very easy position but in the end it is one of the most important positions in baseball.
