Ever since I could remember, I have always had a great interest and love for the game of baseball. As a kid, I would spend countless hours in the backyard with my grandfather, or even by myself, tossing, hitting and fielding a baseball. When I wasn't in the yard pretending to be Nomar Garciaparra I would watch the Boston Red Sox games on TV with my Grandfather. Even in my early adolescence, as impatient as most are, I had the patience to sit there and watch the Sox.With my eyes glued to the screen with a look of anticipation fixed on my face ready to mimic my grandfather with the excitement of a home run hit or the frustration of Mo-Vaughn striking out. Call me crazy, but I was addicted, even as a young boy, to Boston Red Sox baseball.
Donaldson hit a .297 avg, hit 41 hrs and 123 RBIs in his first season as a Toronto Blue Jay which lead to the nickname “Bringer of rain”. He was traded to the Jays in return for Canadian third baseman Brett Lawrie. He was an amazing addition to the team with his great skills at third base and his awesome batting skills. To repeat his remarkable season, Donaldson will need to work just as hard if not harder than he did last year and stay healthy. It is extremely hard to repeat the same stats from year to year especially when an injury could occur at anytime and sideline you. Donaldson maybe able to increase his stats by making pitchers walk him more. This would help score more runs as well as win more games. Will Donaldson go back to back as a MVP? Can he bring the rain once again this season?
Clouds mugged the sun of light as the day progressed. Dusk filled the air on the baseball diamond where I would leave my legacy. Forth, was the championship game to be played, and the pressure of the starting pitcher, was not fazing me. In the zone, we said the Little
I have loved baseball for years, but by the time I was a freshman at Laurel High School, I had precious little experience. The chances of me playing baseball in most high schools were slim, but this was Laurel. America’s favorite pastime was treated there as a vestige of years long forgotten. The athletic director ignored us, the students didn’t support us, and the school funded us just enough to say that they had a baseball program. Tucked away in a forgotten corner of the campus in the gloomy shadows of the tower from which football games were announced, the baseball diamond was the school’s disgrace. The dugouts were dismal cinder block bunkers with peeling paint and a propensity to flood. Grass was scarce where it was supposed to be and
About three weeks ago, the Packer Varsity baseball team beat Berkeley Carroll school for the first time in twelve years and in glorious fashion. Tears streamed down my face as our winning run crossed the plate in extra innings, dust flying up as my teammates and I mobbed each other
As soon as I made my very first varsity baseball appearance, I knew that I had to be the very best I could be or there was never going to be a chance of ever putting on that white and maroon crisp cleaned dri-fit Russel number 18 jersey. My
Baseball icon and public figure Bryce Harper is known to be one of the most hardworking players ever. He works to perfect his craft diligently each and every day. Harper prides himself in earning everything he has. He also has his own line of baseball gear and clothing. He has an endorsement with Under Armor and they have created him his own logo that goes on merchandise to be sold to the fans. He is known as favorite among most baseball fans, largely in part to how he plays the game, full of hustle and class. He is also known to have one of the best haircuts and beards in the game.
it's a hot Texas Sun beat down upon my neck a fast ball whizzed past my bat and into the catcher's glove after you had another strikeout. I trudged back to the dugout thoughts of failure filled my mind of my confidence slowly vanishing. I wasn't accustomed to anything less than success before high school. I prospered in youth athletics while living in South Dakota. I had a phenomenal baseball coach to transform my robbed potential into success on the baseball diamond. Unfortunately, my father's Air Force career demanded that we move before my baseball season. Without me my team went on to win the city state championships advancing all the way to the Little League World. When I was younger my family moved to not affect my athletic performance the difficulties began I was torn from my tight-knit community in Northern Virginia and forced to adjust to life in West Texas prior to the start of my freshman year. I struggled to regain the close friends and relationships I left behind for the first time in my life.
Other than being confident, Trout is baseball smart as well. Being confident and smart are the best attributes in baseball, and that is why those attributes make Trout one of the best. An example of his confidence would be how often he steals bases; he believes he is fast enough and good enough every time he steals to be safe even though he may be thrown out sometimes. Baseball is a game of failure, and Trout realizes that and puts it to his advantage when he hits a ball that typically should be a routine out. Trout will run as hard as he can because he knows there is always a chance for error, and when the error comes he will be safe rather than out because he hustled. Again, Bryce Harper plays differently than Trout. Bryce Harper is not confident and smart; he is cocky and foolish. Cocky is different from confident to where Harper believes he is good enough so he doesn’t have to try. Cocky and foolish in Harper’s situation mean generally the same thing. There are several accounts where Harper hits a ground ball or a fly ball and jogs down the line because he is upset or knows he will get out. This is foolish because the defender could make an error and still have time to throw Harper out. When Harper returns to the dugout, he often gets into an argument with a teammate about his effort. Those are the reasons Mike Trout is an overall better baseball player than Bryce
In late May 2015, a few friends of mine and my girlfriend made the decision to go to big festival of punk bands held inside of a shutdown high school that acts now as a performing arts center. Among these bands, there was a couple that I was beyond excited to see; Chunk, No Captain Chunk!, Real Friends, and most of all “Modern Baseball.” It was a full day festival of fun and excitement. In a hurry we bought tickets and began our wait for the day to finally come, trudging through the last few weeks of school.
“I'll never forget Opening Day in Cincinnati. When they called my name during introductions and a sellout crowd stood and cheered, I looked into the stands and saw Katie and our two kids, Sierra who's nearly 2, and my 6-year-old stepdaughter, Julia, and my parents and Katie's parents. I had
One beautiful day, there was a whole group of boys down at the lower lake practicing baseball, and getting ready for the season to start. The pitcher throws it, the batter hits a long one, the center-fielder races after it, he runs back to the fence, he jumps for it, but can't make the almost impossible catch. As the batter rounded the bases, everyone's jaw dropping faces get that man-that-was-a-nice-hit kinda face. Someone even said, “WOW, now you just need to hit that in a game?” In all of this fun and exciting day, the batter, that doesn’t know it, will be in a whole lot of fear and distress after he gets home later on.

The birth of Bryce was very important. It was not only a gift to the family, but also a gift to everyone who know’s him. Even though he works everybody’s nerves almost every day, they definitely would not trade him for anything in the world. Tristan’s brother is a blessing and a curse! He is sensational.
