The noon day sun beat down on the red clay infield at Harry Harris Park. Runners on first
and second squinted from the glare as they watched the pitcher’s mound for the opportunity
to run. Advise for the runners as well as the batter was screamed and from the stands of
spectators. Adding to the din of noise was the chant of the infield and outfield, “Hey,
batter, batter!” The smell of popcorn and barbeque permeated the air. Water bottles
emptied as players sought to stay hydrated from the suffocating source of heat that
surrounded them. The ball field was alive with action!



The midnight moon lazily lit the ball field. The red infield clay reflected a rusty tone
lightening ever so slightly at the pitcher’s mound. The moon light on bases lit up their
lonely abandoned positions. Dew on the grass of the outfield announced the outer limits
of the game area. Silver spectatorsstands invited the moon light to bathe them. All was

  • The Catcher in the Rye3
    The Catcher in the Rye3 The Catcher in the Rye “I swear to God I’m crazy. I admit it.” It is very easy to automatically assume that Holden Caulfield is crazy. It’s even a logical assumption since Caulfield himself admits to being crazy twice throughout the course of the book. However, calling Holden Caulfield crazy is almost the same as calling the majority of the human race crazy also. Holden Caulfield is just an adolescent trying to prevent himself from turning into what he despises the most,

    Aspects of Characterization The use of literary devices such as diction and symbolism are crucial elements in establishing characterization. The diction, writer’s choice of words, much be appropriate for the characters and the situations in which the author places them (Meyer 234). Therefore, William Faulkner’s diction in “A Rose for Emily” will differ greatly from Ernest Hemingway’s “Soldier’s Home.” Hemingway uses the Kreb’s family home and Faulker uses the element of time as symbols. The home

Yes, you haven\'t experienced the true effects of binge drinking until you\'ve thrown-up all over yourself. But why, why is it that today\'s generation feels that this is fun?

    Morality DOES Need Religion Morality Does Need Religion In his essay, C. Stephen Layman clashes two views of morality: that of the secular point of view and the religious point of view. Layman starts out by defining the two different stances. The secular point of view states that there is no after life and that morality was an emergent phenomenon. Also, the only goods are those that can be found on the earth. The religious perspective states that there is life after death, and therefore the “goo

Students resort to violence and theft simply to obtain designer clothes or name brand shoes. This instills a fear among the students and teachers. It is

Courts have been established to censor the actions of accused persons and it has long been a major theme to be dealt with in many societies throughout history.

Does allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns deter violent crimes? Or does this cause otherwise law-abiding citizens to harm each other? Thirty-one states now have guaranteed their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if applicants do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness. So what have the
  • The Fight for Creatine
    The Fight for Creatine Creatine is an amino acid that is produced in the pancreas, liver, and kidneys. The natural creatine that is produced in the body replenishes adenosine triphosphate, which fuels muscle use. Creatine helps to add in extra repetitions during a lifting program. When adding in extra repetitions there are better chances of building muscle bulk. Many people feel creatine should be banned just like anabolic steroids because of long-term side effects. However, creatine is not as d

Gambling is an ancient activity, but in America, land of the slot machine and the instant lottery ticket, it is part of a vastly growing wide spread story. It is a story of immediate gratifi
