    “Baseball was, is, and always will be to me the best game in the world.” - Babe Ruth My favorite place to be is a baseball field. I am most comfortable when I am playing baseball.

    Just a Blur Today was the day. My dad had been talking about this all season. As we walked up to the field before warm ups I was slightly more nervous than usual. They were our rivals. We had to win to prove we were the best softball team in our town. When we got to the field there were a few girls waiting for us. I sat down next to my best friend Sabrina, whose father was also a coach. We became great friends because of softball and because our dads were harder on us than anyone else on the…
