    four pitches, which most times would put me down, but today I tried to not let it get to me. Sadly I had to wait another inning for my chance to hit again. When the next inning came along I was the first one up which meant that there was no one on base. I step up to the plate that is slightly discolored from all the times it has been slid on.
