  • "Yes" , Dad 
  • Are you ready for the game Dustin ?
  • Woohooo
  •       When me and my dad pull up to the baseball diamond in his sweat blue Ford Focus that he just bought a few weeks ago. I get out of the car and my dad  asked me “ Are you ready for the first game of the season Dustin?”     I replied excitedly back “Yes.”     When I pulled my  stuff out of the back of the trunk. I realized that I was an eighth grader and the pitches would be coming way faster now and I would have to be prepared.
  • Ouch!
  •                 So my dad and I walked over to the baseball diamond to see the fifth and sixth graders playing and having their noisy parents yelling like lions because their team just hit a homerun over the fence. They just ended the game. So my team and I started to walk behind the fence with  the greenest grass behind it. My team and I started to warm up and I was partners with J.B. he is one of our best pitchers.
  •  30 minutes passed and my team and I were ready to start the baseball game.I was the first one up to bat and I am not usually up there up I think I will be fine. Besides it is only the first game of the season and it really doesn't count if we go to the playoffs or not. Time passed and the baseball game was about to start our team was batting first since we are play against the Rockville Rockets and they were at home playing on their field. When I came  up to bat with my sweaty jersey from warming up before the game. I was number 12 and the number was on my back because I was assigned that number from my Coach which was standing on the third base line giving me signals to tell my what to do if he wants me to bunt or just have confidence. He didn't give me the but sing but he did remind me that I had special poured baseball sunglasses and that I had to put them on and turn them on or then the sunglasses won’t work.
  • So I put on the sunglasses and then I realized what wil happen if they don't work like I planned they would. So I had the sunglasses on the helmet and my lucky metal bat in had to hit a homerun over the fence so then our team could be in the lead one two zero but that would rarely happen. So I dug my cleat into the sand to make a indentation so then I could have more friction to swing the bat. So I stare at the pitcher  to see what he was going to throw the ball  and then the baseball released from his hand it looked like a strike so I was about to swing and then it curved and hit me right in the back like a rocket was about to launch of and go right through  me.
  • I started to walk over to first base while still cry really hard. Then I realized that my goal was over I could not hit a homerun of the first pitch but still I could still  try to hit a homerun this game. So then J.B. was up guess what he just did he just hit a homerun just what I wanted to happen so then it would be two to zero and we will be ahad and that just kept happening repeatedly until I as up to bat again and it was for to one and  then I hit a grounder to third and got out and it was very exciting and fun to hang out with friends and play baseball in all the dirt  and all of us got muddy and were excited to play Thursday.
