A Giant Win!

Wow! That was neat. Unless you’re a Detroit Tigers fan. The San Francisco Giants just won the World Series with a really exciting game. It even went into extra innings. Kate was hoping the Tigers would win, but I was rooting for the Giants. Now, Kate has to carry my backpack to school on Monday! …

Yesterday when I came home from school, there was a baseball game on TV. I sat down and watched for awhile. (I didn’t want to do my math homework.) Anyway, they zoomed in on this guy’s bat before he went up to the plate. Guess what I saw? There was this black, sticky looking material …

Switch Hitting Hall of Famers

Yesterday, I was reading a book about baseball. It had cool stories, and awesome pictures. One story was about Mickey Mantle, one of the best hitters in baseball history. The coolest part about him is that he could hit from both sides of the plate! Can you believe that? I have enough trouble hitting from …

Yesterday I was in English class and we were writing stories. My teacher told me to write about my favorite memory, and I knew just what to write about! It was a sunny day at the local ballpark near my house. My friends and I were playing a game of baseball. I came up to …
