I think our ballpark should be chosen due to the dangerous conditions of the field. When balls are hit, sometimes they bounce and hit the holes on/in the ground, which then the ball bounces and hits the players in the face, chest or arm. Our ballpark does not have proper dugouts or a working batting cage for us to practice in. Our infield needs work. It's not flat and we’re always tripping or falling while running around the bases or catching a ball. Our outfield is even worse. We don't even have grass all over it! It's almost a full dirt field. It's "Bald" and more uneven then the infield. It is so hard to run on a field that has piles of dirt in some spots and holes in other spots. This year will be my fifth year for playing baseball/softball for EOM AA. I really love this sport. Pat Burrell from the Phillies is my idol. Last year I played on three teams. Two out of the three won the championship! I was awarded a plaque for True Spirit and Sportsmanship. I realize that every year I play, the better I get. I hit a three run homeruns last season and helped bring the team to the championship. I was so excited!! I would really like to see this field get some help, so I can keep on playing! My dream is to be like my mother, whom is also my coach and I would like to someday be just like her. I just hope the field will still be here in the future. I am a leader and I dream of not only being the best ball player that I can be but to also coach when I am old enough! "IF YOU BUILD IT, THE KIDS WILL COME"
