The topic of my blog is something that is very close to me and something I have grown up with and loved my entire life, which is sports. The first sport I started playing was baseball, I had a great interest in baseball for as long as I can remember and started playing Little League when I was five years old. I started playing basketball a year later, I didn’t really love it as much as baseball, but still enjoyed shooting around with friends. As far as football, I never played in an actual league. I was a rather small kid, so having kids almost double my size tackle me didn’t seem like a great idea. But, football was and continues to be one of my favorite sports to watch.
I was introduced to this topic from a myriad of different people. These people included my dad, uncles, grandfathers, friends, and cousins, you name it. All of these people introduced me to certain aspects of each game that really caught me interest. I can’t really say there was a first experience that led me to become a fan of sports, because I have playing and watching them almost my entire life. I do remember, however, going to professional basketball and baseball games when I was somewhere between 4-6 years old. I was astounded while watching these athletes play and was very intrigued by the games. So that is basically how I was introduced to my topic. I am extremely grateful to the people who introduced me to sports, because without them, my life would be incomplete.
