The Power of Family




Family is where you have the greatest experiences. In my family we are very close and have great experiences. We always have loved sports and going to games was no different. From the preseason to regular season and all the way to the playoffs, these experiences always bring us together. One main time it brought us together was back in 2013. It was game 6 of the World Series and my whole family was there. It was against the cardinals just like in ‘07. This game really brought us together. 3 outs left in the game and we were excited. First home win in 95 years and we would be there. Koji Uehara was pitching. He had been light outs for all of 2013. One out. Flashlights all on recording. 2 outs. Everyone on edge of seats. Last batter rips a ground ball over to shortstop. Picked up and tossed to first. It was that moment when we realized how much these games brought us together. At this moment we didn’t care it was a school night. We didn’t care about those cardinal fans. We didn’t care that it was 1 am. We only cared for how much this mattered to us and the bond we shared as a family. In my family it’s not just about winning or losing, it’s about the memories being shared.
