|I had to buy a Helmet.|
|In the dugout with my team. I am #6.
We have a really nice kids on our team.
I played basketball with 2 of the kids so I already knew them.
|My first time up to bat, ever!These kids are all really good fast pitchers.
I struck out 2 times and got one walk
I try not to feel badly when I strike out or mess up on a play.
I know I will do better next time.
I noticed that some of the kids on all the teams look like they are going down the “Shame Drain”, when they mess up a play or don’t pitch to good or strike out. I know how it feels to mess up or fail at things because it happens to me all the time at school.
I try to stay positive when these things keep happening to me.
I hope the players can try to think positively so they
won’t feel so bad when they mess up at baseball.
Its no big deal, just keep trying. Thats what I do.
We have great coaches.
They are the Dads.
My Mom told them I have dyslexia and I don’t know right from left or before and after and where the positions are on the field.
When my coach tells us our positions, I always run back to them and ask where it is?
They are all always so patient and kind and don’t criticize me for not knowing where to stand.
I didn’t even know where center field was?
All we need is for someone to be nice to us and give us a chance.
You may have to tell us the positions or directions every single time because we don’t remember them.
But we are worth it. I wish everyone was as nice as my coaches.
They take the time to show me how to bat. They even let me try out for pitcher!
I want to be a pitcher.
I want to be a good player.
I just need some help.
I will always try as hard as I can, thats what I do.
|I got walked to first base. Then I stole second base.||
This is me getting ready to steal third base, I did!
Then I got to run to home plate.
I am having a lot of fun at baseball.
I even got hit by the ball on my second game.
The pitcher hit me right in the back. Now I know how it feels.
It hurts right away and then you rub it or get ice and the pain goes away.
My mom was right, it won’t kill you to get hit by the ball.
