My big brother James has always been a baseball player. He is six years older than , but he always invites me to go play with him. It's one of my favorite things do. We live next to a park. Whenever get bored we just cross the street and throwing the ball around. The last time we to the park, we were playing catch and hitting some baseballs with our bats. Some guys up to us because they wanted to play game of baseball. They needed two more players, they asked us to play with them.

James me if I wanted to play, and I yes. The guy's name was Christian, and he us to all the guys. James introduced me gave the guy our names. I asked Christian I could play catcher. I always liked playing at school. He said that I could and got first base. During the game, James got homerun and I was excited for him. I on the base twice, but I got out the time. I was sad, but James told not to worry and that it happens.

After game, Christian and the guys told James if wanted to go grab a drink with them. thought James was going to go because he to drink, but he told them that he going to take me out to eat. We them for the game and Christian asked James his phone number just in case they ever more players for a game. James gave it him and then we went to go eat Jim's Burgers.

I asked James why he didn't to drink with the guys. He told me he knew his responsibilities. I didn't know what meant, but I was glad he didn't go. , we could eat burgers and fries.
