Baseball has become more and more part of my life rather than just an activity. Baseball has really clicked with me the more I watch and play the game. Baseball has given me a reason to push myself and want to get better through all aspects of the game such as, hustle, friendship and effort. I have learned that baseball can be 10 times harder if you don't have the right mind set of what to do next or if you keep a past mistake in your head. It will carry over to the next inning; understanding this as a way to be a better contributor to the team is key. Being able to have teammates and friends on and off the field can truly create that bond that won't break because of how close everyone is. Being a good teammate will also help with being able to pick your teammates up when things do not go as planned or someone has an error.
Academics for high school and college will stay the same in terms of work ethic and time management; these will never change. The only exception is that I will continue to push myself more and more for better improvement and grades. I am able to know when to have fun and when to focus. Who I am today has been shaped by the all the experiences and events that have happened with me. Overall, my parents have made me who I am with having good body language, work ethic, empathy, and exposing me to new things. My years of playing school and travel baseball have introduced me to new things, either having to work on something new or continuing to work harder on something I have been working on.
