Yankees Game Essay
Hi my name is Marilyn Rivera. Going to the Yankees game would be a big honer for me. I would want to go to the Yankees game because, that's my dream of going to my first game ever. I had never seen a game in person, but if you give me a chance you would make me very satisfied. I always watched very game on television, and never missed one. In my opinion I think very one on the yankees team rocks. One think I like about the Yankees, is very one is different in their very own way. I love that very one on the team works together because every one begins with an end in mind, and put first things first. Every one is a team and they need to support each other. Without working together they're wouldn't be a Yankees team at all.This is why I want to go. I learned something new, and I learned that the word in team means to work together , achieves goals, and most important have fun. I also want to go the Yankees game because I want to learn and see how the players of the team work . This would mean alot to me like I said this would be an honer. This would mean alot, I am a girl who has a little sister and a big brother. I used to be very mean, and sometimes a little rude to them, I have to say. One day I was watching tv and put a channel, That was the first time I saw the Yankees. That open my heart because I saw every player work together as a team! I compared myself to them and realized I should make a change. Now every time I see the Yankees play I feel very thankful for each and every one of them, for teaching me a lesson. The main lesson I learned was working together will actually turn much better than doing my self because at the end this,it's is just for fun. A team is a team they always work together. In Conclusion, this is why I want to go to the Yankees game and what would it mean to me. Thank you for reading my essay, and just know this would be a big opportunity for me.

It would be my dream to go to a Yankee game. I have always loved baseball. It is on of my favorite sports. I watch baseball games on television and my favorite team is the Yankees! If I had a chance to go to a game, I would take my mom or dad. I have never been to a baseball game in my life. I know writing this essay and entering this contest will make my parents so proud. My favorite baseball player is Didi Gregorius. He is the shortstop for the New York Yankees. It would be my biggest dream to see him play at a real game! I know I am only in 5th grade, but I hope I win because it would make me so happy and I would be cheering very loud for my favorite team.

I want to go to the Yankee stadium because I have never been there before and I would like to see how it looks inside. Also because I've never even seen a Yankee game in person or on tv so It will be nice to actually see what's it like. We don't even have the money to go either but if we do we don't have time or there are more important things to spend it on so I never really have a chance to go. It'll be cool to go because it will be me and my moms first time going and it will be exciting because we won't know what to expect. I also want to go because it will be a new experience that we might even get a souvenir to remember the time we had there. That is why I want to go to the Yankee stadium.

A Day At The Stadium
I want to go to a Yankee game because I'm a Bronx native and I always pass by the stadium and I wonder what it looks like inside. I always saw people going inside and rush to buy tickets. Most of my friends tell me about their time at the stadium and I wanted to know what that experience feels like. This is the best opportunity of my life and hope I win a chance to go. The Bronx has a lot of nice places to visit and the Yankee stadium is definitely one of them. Many people think the Bronx doesn't have nice places but for me it's the best borough to live in. The Yankees is the most popular thing I ever heard of. I hope win this one of a life opportunity!

Memories Of Grandpa
My grandfather passed in June, 4 years ago. I remember when we played catch on my grandfather's patio when i was five. He was very sick but he had a very steady hand. He taught me to be a good baseball player and other sport player. This will help me remember and cherish the moments we had together before his last breath. Another reason i want these tickets is because this will be my first game front and center. I will have many memories to cherish. Also, my grandfather loved baseball. We would play in my building's courtyard and he would enjoy our games so much he would not stop wanting to play. This would mean a lot to my family members as well. My family and i would put all the photos next to my picture of my grandpa. This would truly mean a lot to me . Thank you for your time.

A Beautiful Day With My Dad
I want to go to the Yankees game because neither of us have been to a yankees baseball game. I think it is cool that they play outside, this way we can get to enjoy the weather. I don't know anything about baseball but my dad said he'll teach me as we watch the game. These are some of the reasons why i want to go to the yankee's game:
-I love park food
-I like to scream when my team is winning
-It will give me a chance to learn a new sport
This will mean a lot to me because i enjoy spending time alone with my dad. I like to do different things. Besides, if i really like the game i can try to convince my dad to buy tickets for a future game. If i win these tickets i will be amazed!

Why I Should Go To The Yankees Game
The reason I should go is because it was a while since we went out without the school. Also, a few weeks ago we did a math state test and we had a science spiral test. When you think about to it, it feels like they want us to be the world's best class. I know that they want us to pass 4th grade and move on to 5th grade and get in to a great university like nyu or ohio state university. However, there is so much work! Also, if I get the ticket this means that I can enjoy watching the Yankees. Here is a thing that I would do if I met the Yankees: listen to their coach I would cheer on the team. THIS is option for me to hang out and cheer on the yankees is really fun and I would love to do it! GOOD LUCK YANKEES AND DO YOUR BEST! BEAT THE BALTIMORE ORIOLES!
