Journal Writing Project: Baseball

By Tannor Fairchild

Baseball season is in full swing here at Mabel-Canton. While the seniors were gone on their senior trip, the JV team played some games. They played well and came out with some great plays and some wins.

The two seniors got back on the 16th and played their first game on Monday the 18th at Glennville Emmons. Glennville and Mabel are a lot alike, small numbers and and little experience. The Cougars started slow, but so did the Wolverines. Going into the third inning, the game was tied at one, until the Cougar bats started making good contact and getting some runners on base and later hitting them in. The Cougars came out on top in six innings with a score of 11-1.

After the varsity game came a JV game. Similar to Mabel, many GE players played both varsity and JV. The game started slow for the Cougars, but the Wolves’ bats came out hot, scoring eight runs in the first inning. The top of the second is when the Cougars got things rolling, scoring six runs before the Wolves’ defense put an end to the top half of the inning. Due to no lights, the game ended early with a score of 9-6, GE. On Tuesday, they went to Austin to play Lyle-Pacelli. Lyle’s a very good team and well rounded with talent. The Athletics took the game in five innings winning, 15-4.

The Cougars had a busy week this week, playing four nights, Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and ending the week in Rushford for a tourney on Saturday.

Baseball isn’t a popular sport in the Southeast Conference. Many schools combine just to have enough players for a team. For the first time in years, Spring Grove has its own team. They used to join with Caledonia for track, baseball and softball.

Baseball is a mental sport, almost all mental. It takes a lot of thinking and concentration. Over the past five years of playing for Coach Urbaniak, I’ve learned to let my mistakes go and get the next play. I’ve always struggled with putting myself down after a mistake or error. He’s showed me how to cope with my frustration on and off the field.

Baseball is a sometimes a slow-paced game, but it also can be an intense sport to play and watch. Baseball is a fun sport, when things are going good. It is also very easy to get your head down, when not going so well. Baseball shows what true character people have when they play a sport. As Coach would always tell us, “How will you answer that little v .....
