The reason baseball is my passion is because my dad, who is an awesome baseball player, inspired me to try baseball when I was young and I have liked it since. The baseball team I am currently in is Highlands AAA. Another reason baseball is my passion is because you can make new friends in a very fun, sporty way. My coaches and parents helped me in my passion because they are encouraging me to take one step more and show me where I need to improve.
