season was finally underway. Everyone was excited. The bleachers
were filled with anxious parents, ready to see their boys play
ball. Danny was proud to be a part of a team and felt good as he
walked onto the field with his teammates in their new uniforms.
Several of Danny’s friends had encouraged him to join their team,
Braves would face the Dodgers, a team that did not have a very good
record. The Braves felt confident that they had a good chance to
win. True to form, the team had played well and the score was 6-3.
The Braves were on their way to victory. Now in the bottom of the
ninth, the coach called out to Danny, “You’re in!”
Danny looked up to
the sky as he ran to his position. It was a bright sunny day. It
was a perfect day for a baseball game. This was the first year for
Danny to play baseball. He enjoyed playing with his friends and was
learning more and more about the game. Now in his first game, he
was on his way to play right field. Because he had little
experience, he expected to spend most of this game on the bench,
but the coach wanted all of the players to get some experience so
Danny took to the field in the last inning.
