The Winning Run

By: Anonymous

I step up to the plate and pull the bat behind me, ready to swing. As the pitcher winds up, about to pitch, I begin to swing. The ball goes flying into the catcher’s glove.

“Strike one!”

I get ready to swing again.


Then another one.


Then…the perfect pitch! I swing hard and see the ball hit the bat. As it soars through the air, I sprint as hard as I can to first and second base. As I round the base I look to make sure I can make it. I fortunately decide I can and continue to third, and then home. As I step on the plate, my teammates cheer loudly, as I just scored the game winning run! As we receive our medals, I know I will remember this forever.
