Growing up, I did not have much friends as I did not speak English when I first came ot the US. I would always be able to join a baseball game at the park with some of the local kids and they were nice enough to lend me their mitts and bats to use. Overtime, my English improved and I got along with the other kids. One of them is my best friend to this day. Even though we don't play baseball an more, we still check up on each other during the week to catch on each other's busy lives. Baseball, an all American pass time helped me learn English and make a lifelong friend, is something I will always cherish.
