    day of class. So I started doing research on how to pitch a softball since I had no idea on how to even do that! I found out that there are many different types of grips and pitching stances. For example, there is the “change up” pitch where the pitcher holds the softball a certain way and it makes it look like the balls going slower from the catcher's point of view. On day two I received the ball and started to practice my form and I…

    There are lots of other places that I would rather be than school. Places that have great weather, great people, and fun activities. I have been to lots of different places that can be described by these words and would love to go back. Some of these possible places include being at the beach in Florida or California, hiking the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and visiting Chicago and attending a Cubs game. I really enjoyed the warm weather when I was on vacation down south but being able to attend…

    Without sports I wouldn’t be caring about half the things that I am currently, and as my best friend said, “Without baseball I don’t know what I would be doing with my life.” That is a very scary and honest statement, because about six years ago we nearly quit. I think that playing a sport can help people grow as individuals and as a community. I know without sports I would still be the short hot headed kid I was back in the day. Baseball is my true passion and now I am lucky enough to be able…

    Becoming a baseball player seems easy growing up. Parents sign you up, you go to practice, play your games, the season ends and you wait for next season. Yes, it is that easy, up until you actually have to compete for a spot on your team. When actually there is way more to it than that. Baseball also has many positive aspects to it, both mentally and physically to the human body.

    First Home Run The pitcher steps on to the mound and is ready to pitch, and whoosh in comes a fastball and crack the way I hit the ball sounded like banging a hammer on a piece of metal and as I took off running I watched the ball sail out of the park for my first home run. As I rounded second base I could hear the voices of sister Larissa my mom Leeann and my dad John screaming for me and could feel a lot of excitement from the crowd. In this story I am going to tell you about when I hit my…

    “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. I had always been afraid to try new things, yet when I did all I wanted to do was to experience more of them. For me, leaning how to pitch was one of the best experiences I have ever tried. I took something which I thought was going to be terrifying and turned it into a wonderful achievement of mine. Although I had always found pitching very compulsive I would always try to avoid it.…

    Life As An Expert Pitcher

    • 2 Pages

    I think of life as an expert pitcher. It knows exactly what to pitch and throw you perfectly off guard. People who say life isn’t full of surprises are liars. While we may be able to predict the fastballs in our life like how we’ll go to high school and then college, or maybe visit a foreign country, there are always curveballs, sliders, forkballs, and changups. These things we cannot predict like the death of a loved one, a friend struggling with depression, a break up that you could’ve never…
