First Home Run

Discussion created by zbmedina on Apr 9, 2013

My first home run took place when I was about 10-11 years old.  I was a decent hitter but had never hit a home run until one night game I had made contact with the ball and began my run down to first.  I knew I had hit it hard so I was preparing myself to round 1st base when I notice the coach and other players not really reacting to the play.  When I looked around I didn't see the ball in play and the outfielder staring out through the fence.  That is when I was shocked to learn that it had actually went over for the first time after playing for years on the same field.  It was such a great feeling to round the bases for the first time and having everyone on the field wait until I made it around, I will never forget that day.
