My first Cal Ripken glove.
My first Cal Ripken glove.

My grandma used to play softball, and then she became a softball coach for a little league team. My mom joined my grandmas team, and later she went to John Jay college and joined their softball team. When I was old enough my mom put me on a softball team called the “Ravens” I played on that team for a year. In my first year I got to go to Cal Ripken, and that's when I got my first Cal Ripken glove. I got my second one the next year, I loved to play softball and  I would love to keep playing softball. “When I left John Jay College I didn't find any other teams to play on” and I know that my second year at Cal ripken will be my last year, so im going to keep the First and Second Cal Ripken glove for ever.  I also still have the first and second uniform i got from Cal Ripken, and I will also keep those with the gloves. When i’m older looking at my old gloves will remind me of my old games, just like my mom said “It reminds me of when I used to play”.  My mom said She got her first glove and when she was 8 so that was in 1996. Now i'm playing in 2020.
