    the last two games of the year we stand just two games behind and even season. The first game against some team I’ve never heard of before went relatively quickly, We blew them out of the water ending the game way before the seventh inning. But somehow I find myself here; Anxiously waiting for my turn to show the team I could make something happen. It’s the last inning of the final game and I’m up to bat first.
