I have learned many things about myself through my years of playing baseball. Coaches have told me that I am a team player and that I am very coach-able. I have also been told by coaches, not only on my team but others, that I have very good sportsmanship. I will help kids up if they get knocked down, and I go and check on kids if they get injured.
I was introduced to baseball by my parents when I was about five. I have been playing ever since. I started catching my first year of coach pitch, and I still get the same thrill every time I put on my gear. I have made it to and won many championships in my years of playing baseball. Yet I have learned that it isn’t the years that you win championships that makes you a better player, it is the years that you fail and you are beat to the breaking point. Those years are the years that separate the men from the boys. It doesn’t make you better physically as much as it does mentally. Because of these years I have become more mature as a person and have learned many skills mentally that not only help me become a better baseball player, but help me in everyday life.
I am looking for a college that is not only good athletically, but also academically. I would be a good addition to your program because I am very coach-able and I am a team player. Also, because I have good sportsmanship. I feel that I will set a good example for your program.
