My Favorite Team
New York Yankees are
my favorite team in the American League. I like them because they won
the World Series in 2000, but I also liked them before then. I am so
excited that they won the World Series that I feel like skipping.
My favorite player is Derek Jeter, who is a fantastic shortstop. I wish
I could hit homeruns like Jeter one day.
About my special baseball league
My mom asked my teacher if she knew of a baseball league
that I could play on, considering my handicap situation. The wife of the
coach called my mom and told her of the league that they have for children
with disabilities. In fact, her son is blind and he hits inside-the-park
homeruns sometimes. I was so excited every day as I waited for our first
game, which we played on February 24, 2001.
This league is great! Everyone on the team gets to bat during an inning
regardless of whether there are three outs or not. The coach is the pitcher
and he will continue to pitch the ball nicely until you get a hit. Therefore,
there are no strikeouts, but you can get out if the other team throws the ball to
the base before you get there or if they tag you with the ball when you are not on
the base. After everyone in the dugout has been to bat, then the other team
in the field gets to bat.
It was a thrill to run home.
We had a good team.
When I was in the field I played second base. My buddy stood beside me and
we talked about baseball as we waited for the ball to come our way.
At the end of the game, each team walks across the field and congratulates the
players on the other team. I think that we won the game (even though
no one kept score).
