a short story written to use my different written expressions chronologically from maybe around fourth grade through the present.
The first base coach saw the ball hit high into the sky. The farther away the ball got, the smaller the ball appeared. The lights above the stadium blinded the first base coach, who was coaching in his first World Series ever.
As the ball descended, the coach began to get nervous. “It is coming down on the infield,” He thought. Then he noticed it was coming down toward him and toward first base.
The first base coach suddenly moved without thought. It was as if his body was a mechanical robot. Within mere moments, he found himself punching the first baseman on the field. He didn’t know what came over him, but he now knew that guilt was coming over him.
The crowd may have increased in volume, but the first base coach wouldn’t have heard them. His ears were ringing and his sight was getting hazy. His eyes tried to focus on anything when they finally landed on blurry white object.
As his senses began to amalgamate into focus, the first base coach was amazed to see that he was staring at the baseball on the infield. His mind then synergized focus with his other senses and he slowly realized the implications of what he had just done.
Though those implications had already begun to encircle him, the first base coach had difficulty in understanding what he had just done; and why he had just done it. “Had I punched the first baseman before he caught the final out to try to keep the game alive?” he conjectured.
so teh conclusion to this story is gonna be tht he punched the 1st baseman cuz he didnt want the world series to be over and he couldnt see the final out caught. (EVEN THOUGH THE BATTER WUS already OUT CUZ F THE INFIELD FLY RULE..WTF)
Life is ball. But not one you dance at. You can’t see any more loss when you have already seen it all.
