The quote “A picture is worth a 1,000 words” is very true. When we look at a photograph, we forget that not only is it just an image taken by a camera but it is a moment and memory being captured and stored forever. There are only a few photos where I can say represent my life because this one speaks to my personality clearly. Baseball is an important part of my life and I show a lot of passion for it.

When I look at this image, I feel blessed. I am blessed because I remember that day very well, and it was the most enjoyable day I’ve ever had (Wrigley Field). This day, I had the privilege to go behind the scenes of Wrigley Field. I took this picture when I was touring the press box and saw this amazing view. I snapped this photo on my phone so I can capture that incredible day and carry a wonderful memory that will forever remain in my mind. It is more than just a photo to me(Wrigley Field). It represents how much I love baseball because I can talk about what
