My baseball coach, Paul Giambona, signed up my Island Trees 9 Travel team for a baseball tournament in Maryland. Everyone on the team traveled to Maryland to play at Cal Ripken Stadium.
Before we played, all of us, with our families, went to the Baltimore Orioles game in Baltimore. Before playing in the tournament, we checked in at the hotel, which is right behind the baseball stadium.
This stadium was great. There were about 10 fields there, and my favorite field was the only turf field. It had dugouts like the real Major League Baseball players have.
The main field was a replica of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The experience was exuberant.
