Often in our life times we find something that relaxes us, gives us a thrilling feeling, or makes us feel at home! For me that something is baseball. I may not be the best at the sport, but my passion for the sport has never diminished. I have played as long as I can remember!

From the time I was in little league to High School baseball I have made many friends, not only from my teams but also from other schools and even states! For as long as I can remember baseball has been the sport that I have always loved to play! My friends and I all grew up playing together, and a few of us were even on the same Babe Ruth team! We were unstoppable our last year in that league, we won every game except one! At the end of the season for Babe Ruth there is an all star team that we played on. This team was mixed of the few teams in the league. The team was made of the best of the best in the Logansport Babe Ruth League. We played all over the state! We played in russiaville, Indianapolis, Evansville, Plymouth, and even once in Kentucky! Our team our twelve year old year was a game away from going to the little league world series.

Baseball has opened all kinds of doors for me in my life. High School baseball at Cass has taught me a great deal of very valuable skills. These skills I have learned aren’t only skills I can use on the field, but also skills I can use in everyday situations. In these past three years I have grown a bond with my teammates and coaches that I will remember forever and always cherish. Playing for Cass isn’t just another team it is a family.  Each player has a key role for the team, whether you are starting on the field, designated hitter, pinch running, subbing in for a fatigued player, or doing the charts while in the dug-out. Every person has a role and does their best to fulfill that position on the team.

The great memories and relationships I have formed through baseball are very heart warming and have filled me with so much happiness. This is why it is a very hard situation when knowing this is my last year playing, or not? I have been having issues with my elbow, issues that don’t allow me to throw a ball without a shooting pain in my arm. To know that I may not be able to play my favorite sport, my hobby, my relaxation device if you will, breaks my heart. It’s my senior year! My last year to play baseball for Lewis Cass and to play ball for an actual team. I’m not going to college to play, and with my injury It’s doubtful I would be able to anyways. It is a struggle like no other to know my senior season might have been cut short, even before it started.

    I can definitely relate to your thinking! Baseball at Cass is “home” and always will be. It is a class act program as well as one of the best teams in the state. Not to mention our field is one of the best fields in high school baseball thanks to our hard working and caring coaching staff. Great article!

    Hey, I’m sorry about your elbow. This is a really good article though, and I could understand how you feel about not playing baseball anymore and that sucks. I hope you can find something that you love when you go to college though!

    I loved this article! You did a really good job at explaining all the wonderful things baseball has brought into your life. I understand where you are coming from because volleyball opened so many doors for me. It’s crazy how a sport can change your life. Anyway, I hope that the issues with your elbow clear up so you can play one more time at Lewis Cass. Keep up the good work!

    This article is really well written. I feel bad about your elbow but other than that it seems like you’ve had great memories with the sport. I hope life gets better and you can continue doing what you love.

    I ewally enjoyed reading this article. Most seniors are going through the same thing as you, high school sports coming to an end. Your situation is different. I feel like everyone fears injury senior year because no one wants to have their last chance taken away from them. I really hope that your elbow heals and you are able to finish off senior year how you hoped. Great article Uriah.
