Actually, I'd rather have this log start off with your character being a Freshman in high school. Is that OK?

Yep, that's OK with me. Can't wait for this to start! :)

The students all ran from the school to the gym, got changed in the locker room, and headed up to the field for the first day of baseball practice. Excitement filled the air and so did the happy chatter of the kids. Soon the coach came over and began to speak. "Welcome to the first day of your high-school baseball career. My name is Coach MacDougal, and I am the new baseball coach at this school. According to this chart, only 13 kids played last year, so we only had one Varsity team. This season, we have a record 34 children who signed up to play ball. With that being said, there will be two teams, the Varsity team and the Junior Varsity team. What team you make will be decided by your skill as a ballplayer. Some of your roles and playing time will be diminished because of the size. Unfortunately, I do not have the power of cutting some players. If you do not wish to sit on a bench, I recommend trying another sport this Spring."

At that, 6 freshmen told the coach that they would go try out for the lacrosse team. Another student turned to his friend next to him and said that they should go join the others. "No way," the other kid said, "I've been waiting so long for this. If you want out, then go. I am staying." "Excuse me," the coach said, "What's your name?" The kid replied, hesitantly, "I am Xander Close, coach." "Xander, don't you know that it's rude to interrupt people when they're talking?" "Yes sir," Xander replied dumbly. "Good, but to reinforce that lesson, give me a lap around the field." Xander started off on the lap with some of the older kids on the team chanting sarcastic support for him. "That kid sure does run fast..." Coach MacDougal thought to himself as Xander finished the lap quickly.

"Getting back to what I was saying," the coach continued, "There will now be 14 kids on each team. We will have 4 intra-squad exhibitions before the regular season starts. In these 4 games, you will show to me your skills as a ball player. Play to the best of your ability in these 4 games and you can make the Varsity squad. Alright everyone, let's get started with practice." The kids roared as the coach divided them into teams. Half of them took the field and the other half ran to bat. Xander's team was batting first. A Senior made the lineup and Xander noticed that he was one of the 5 on the bench to start the first intra-squad game. "Hey," Xander said to the Senior, "Why am I not starting?" "Because you're a freshman. Know your place, rook. Also, because of that little escapade earlier."

Xander, what do you do:
A. Accept being on the bench
B. Challenge the senior and try to start
C. Complain to the coach that this is all unfair
D. Dance awkwardly in front of the whole team

Xander sat back down on the bench without a fight. He was put into the game late, and when the coach called his name to go into Center field, Xander did some sort of rendition of The Whip while his teammates watched. Pretty embarrassing, but he had a chance to make up for it as he stood into the box in the bottom of the 5th inning. His team was down by 5 but the pitcher on the mound was throwing erratic. He was a Junior who threw fast, and had some average breaking balls, but no accuracy. With two men on base, (first and second), and none out, Xander watched as the first pitch went by the outside corner, low for Ball One.

What does Xander do in this At Bat?

A. Swing for a hit on the next pitch
B. Swing for Power on the next pitch
C. Wait for a breaking ball
D. DRAG BUNT OUTTA NOWHERE

(The Month is March BTW, although that will be more important later in other updates)

Xander fouled the next three fastballs off before blooping a change-up the other way into shallow right field. It scored a run to cut the deficit to 7-3. The pitcher walked the next batter, and after striking out two, appeared to be out of a jam. But with a two-out, two strike count, a Senior stood up to bat and crushed a grand slam off the left-field foul pole. "Extra Innings." declared the coach, as the game went through the sixth tied at 7. In the top of the seventh, Xander threw a runner out at the plate who tried to score to end the inning. In the bottom of the frame, Xander bunted the winning run over to third with one out. The next batter hit a walk-off sac fly.

Xander got changed and checked the time. 6:48 (P.M., just in case)! Baseball practice had run over an hour late! Xander had a Science test the next day, and had forgot to study. He ran home and ate dinner quickly. By then, it was 7:30. He went up to his room to study, but then remembered that the Men's College Basketball Championship was on, and his favorite team was playing this night. He needed to study but he also felt the urge to watch the game.

What to you do, Xander?
A. Study, ignoring the urge to watch TV
B. Watch the game, and cram tomorrow during Lunch
C. Attempt to do both (This doesn't work well in real life)
D. Get so angry at the temptation of watching TV that you throw the TV out of the window

Xander resisted the urge of watching the game and studied hard all night. He woke up and checked his phone on the way to school. His team had lost. Xander stayed in a bad mood all day until the test. He passed with ease, earning a 95%. Soon, baseball practice came again. Xander got there early along with only a few other people in his grade. Xander had always been a shy kid and hadn't made much friends this school year. Maybe the baseball team would change that. He looked for a friend to throw around with, choosing from only 3 players:

1. Thomas Johnson, Freshman

African-American, and shares the same interests as you. He plays second base and is a speedy runner.

2. Hansel Tejada, Sophomore

Hispanic kid who doesn't talk much. He skipped a grade, so he's the same age as you. He is a catcher.

3. Dave Simpson, Freshman

White, and plays left field. He often makes jokes and is in most of your classes. He wants to be your friend.

Xander, who do you catch with?

A. Dave
B. Hansel
C. Thomas
D. The wall

Xander went over to Thomas and asked if he wanted to throw. He agreed and we had a catch. Practice was pretty boring, and it ended early. Xander realized that he didn't have any homework that night, and asked Thomas if he'd like to come over to his house. He agreed and the two walked to Xander's house, a few blocks away from school. It started to pour as they walked through the door, so they only had the option of playing video games. Xander suggested MLB Power Pros 2015 and Thomas agreed with the choice. Thomas chose his favorite team, the Red Sox, and Xander used the Mets.

In the game, Thomas struck early and often, carrying a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the 9th. However, Xander finally got some hits off Rick Porcello, and the lead was cut to 5-4. With the tying run on third, Danny Muno, Xander's favorite player, with a 2/6/73 offensive rating, smacked a liner into shallow center. Thomas dove with Mookie Betts and trapped the ball, but the ump ruled it an out. Xander used the new Instant Replay System in MLB PP '15, certain he would win the challenge, but alas, he did not. Thomas started to celebrate, and rubbed it in a little too far.

Xander, what do you do?

A. Politely ask him to stop
B. Tell him to stop
C. Punch him
D. Clothesline him

Xander asked politely, and soon, Thomas stopped. He then ran home. Soon it was late at night, and Xander had nothing to do.
