Kayden- we're batting first. I'm 3rd to bat. When I get up there Declan is pitching, he threw 5 pitches 3 balls 2 strikes the next pitch and comes low and inside ball 4. I go out to field. coach pulls me over and says "is your arm good?" I answer "yes" and he tells me to go to the mound. Coach put me in as pitcher. The first batter walks up to the plate and starts to twirl his bat. The batter gets set and I get ready. Next thing you know the ball is flying out of my hand and it is called a strike. I walk halfway to the plate and received the ball. As I walk back to the mound I take a deep breath. As I get ready to throw the next pitch the batter shows a bunt. As I wind up he goes back to a regular hitting position and next thing you know the ball was hit into the outfield. The center fielder drops the easy out. He threw the ball over the first baseman's head but luckily he jumped and caught it. It wasn’t out but we held the guy at first. The team was upset but I brought them back down by telling them it is alright we'll just get the next one. The next pitch is a ball. I end up striking out two guys and throwing one out at third. I was 3rd at bat. I hit the ball to the first baseman and got out. The next guy hit an in the park home run that ended up scoring 3 runs. Then Curt, our power hitter hit a fly ball to center field then the guy dropped the ball and Curt got to second base. I play pitcher and 2nd base.

We are going talk about Texas Tech history. We are talking about this because I really like Texas Tech baseball so much. So to start off Texas Tech baseball Along with the football and men's basketball teams, the Texas Tech baseball team was founded during the university's initial academic year, in 1925–26. The team's first series was against the West Texas A&M Buffaloes in 1926, an 18–9 victory in the first game and 14–9 loss in the second.
Today I'm going to talk about the history of the St. Louis baseball because St. Louis is a pretty good team. The Cardinals were founded in 1882 as an American Association Team called the St. Louis Brown Stockings. In 1883, the team changed its name to the St. Louis Browns. In 1892, the team moved to the National League. In 1899, the name was changed to the Perfectos, and in 1900, the team became the St. Louis Cardinals. From 1902-1953, an American League Team called the St. Louis Browns also played in St. Louis. In 1954, they moved to Baltimore and became the Baltimore Orioles. The 2018 season is the Cardinals 127th season of play in the National League. Since joining the National League in 1892, the team has won over 9,900 games, finished in first place 25 times winning 3 National League Eastern Division Titles and 10 National League Central Division Titles, and won 19 National League Pennants and 11 World Series Championships. Since the ownership group led by Bill Dewitt Jr. purchased the Cardinals from Tannhauser Busch in 1996, the team has posted a 1,952-1,610 record (.548 win pct., 3rd-best in majors), and advanced to the postseason 13 times, including 12 of the past 18 seasons. The Cardinals 71 postseason wins since 1996 are 2nd in the majors (NY Yankees, 104). The team has finished in first place 11 times, won four NL pennants and two World Series while drawing over 70 million fans. The Cardinals have made 28 postseason appearances in franchise history and have drawn more than five million fans to postseason games in St. Louis. For the first time in franchise history, the Cardinals have advanced to the postseason in five consecutive seasons (2011-15). The Cardinals have advanced to the postseason in six (2009, '11, '12, '13, '14, '15) of their ten seasons under General Manager John Mozeliak. The Cardinals 897 wins under Mozeliak's watch rank 3rd to the NY Yankees (910) and LA Dodgers (900) in that time span. The Cardinals have played in 61 playoff games since 2011, the most of any major league team since that time. Since 2011, St. Louis has a Major League best 32 postseason wins. In 2011 and in 2013, Baseball America named the Cardinals the Baseball Organization of the Year. There are 48 former Cardinal players, managers and executives enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown, New York.
