Josh, a young boy with a big dream, wants to play Major League Baseball for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He started baseball at age 3, and now is 7 years old and playing on a little league team. Josh plays 2nd base, 3rd base, and outfield. He’s not the best player, but he is still pretty good. Let’s fast forward in life. Josh is now in college at ASU and is playing great. His team is amazing this year they are 5-1. They are facing their ultimate rival the U of A WildCats. This game is really popular and it will be a close one. The Score is 9-9 and its the bottom of the 9th inning and Josh is up to bat with a runner on third with 2 outs. Josh watches the first pitch for a strike, then next pitch, Josh hits a hard line drive into the outfield and the run scores, ASU wins, but Josh is laying on the ground screaming. The catcher from the other team ran over to Josh to see that he had hurt his left leg so he called over the coach to help him off the field. Josh is now on the injured list and another player named Nick took his spot. The games went on and Josh recovered just in time for the Championship game. It is against the Wildcats yet again. The score is 9-6 and Josh is up to bat with the bases loaded, 2 outs and it’s the bottom the 9th inning and Josh needs to hit a grandslam to win the game. Josh is at a 3-2 count then the next pitch Josh hits a towering homerun and ASU wins the Championship. Josh receives M.V.P after the game. A few months later, Josh gets a call from the Diamondbacks manager, he says, “Josh you have been signed to the Arizona Diamondbacks,” fulfilling his childhood dream.
