Yankees Are The Best
the Yankees are the best they always hit home runs. also catch hit the baseball close to out the park they catch it.also they are number one. Also I've seen Areen Judd and he's really good and I want to watch him again. Also Like the horses fencing... Also I like the history of the Yankees. When I go to the Yankees game it reminds me of jakee Roberson.also it very crowded.so that means you can meet people that you don't see in a blue moon. Somtimes you can even meet some players. I live around the nighberhood so I can look at the investment.also I like seeing the trees. It is very big. Also I like when a lot of stuff is going on.

Yankees With My Family
Upcoming is the baseball game between the Yankees and Angels. I have been a Yankee fan all my life and would love to go see the team play. The Yankees have been on a roll recently winning 14 out of their last 15 games at this moment, and the Angels are a red hot team with the wonderful rookie Shohei Ohtani. This should be a game for the ages. Not only would it be a great experience to see the game, but I would be able to see the game with my father and that is the best part. Anytime that I get to spend time with my dad is a wonderful time and I always cherish the moments. Every morning I wake up and talk to my dad about different sports and the scores of the day, I would love it if I was able to attend the Yankee game with him and watch some baseball.

I would really like to go to the Yankees game. I want to go because the Yankees are my favorite baseball team. I know almost everything about them. I know how many championships they have, I know most of their current roster, I even know their win/loss record (Its 20-10).This is one of the reasons why I want to go to the Yankees game.
Another reason I want to go to the Yankees game is to have an adventure and to have a great experience with my dad.I would have a great time and it would be fun for us.I also never saw a Yankees game in person.These are 2 reasons why I want to go to the Yankees game.

Smile On Dad's Face
I would like those Yankee tickets because my dad is huge Yankee fan. He has always wanted to go to a yankee game so by having those tickets it would make him very happy and would help us grow closer.
Also having these tickets will make me very happy because I have never been to a Yankee game. This will also make me very happy because growing up, we never really had much, so my family was never able to go to Yankees game and I would love to see the smile on my dad’s face when I tell him we have free tickets to see his favorite team!
As I write this, I am feeling very anxious because this could be a life changing event for me. It may inspire me to become a die hard Yankees fan like my dad. It may inspire me to take up baseball or softball.
This will definitely inspire me to do better in school and make my parents really happy because I did this for my dad. This will also make seem like a responsible person.

Ball Game With My Mom
I believe that my mom and I should go to the Yankee game because we don’t go on a lot of family trips. We haven’t been to the Yankee Stadium ever; plus I have always wanted to see my hometown team play (in person). I always watch the yankees on television, so seeing them in person would be amazing!
It would also be a great surprise for my Mother. She would absolutely love to go. I don’t completely understand baseball but this trip is a great opportunity to start. I have heard a bunch of rumors about ball games but I want my own experience. I have never been inside a stadium and it might even inspire or expand my mind in the sports world.The trip can also be a good opportunity to get out the house. And break the ‘’same old same old’’ routine and do something new. So thank you SideWalk University for a chance to see a Yankee’s game with good seats. I hope this essay shows my genuine passion to attend a yankee game with my mom for the first time!

Ballgame With Dad
I would really like to win the baseball tickets because i would like to surprise my father with them. Ever since my father was around my age he has loved watching and playing baseball. His favorite team is the yankees. If in get the tickets i would really appreciate it because it will give me the chance to do something nice for my father. Also this will give me the chance to have quality father/son time which rarely happens due to his job. I believe that my father would enjoy it as much as me. I know that my father would never get this for his self which is why i would like to do this for him. For these reasons, i would like those tickets

Ball Game With My Brother
I would like to get the Yankees tickets because it’s a passion that I share with my brother and my country. The Dominican Republic is known for baseball being its #1 Sport. These tickets will help me share this opportunity with my brother who is a baseball player and he adores the sport as well.
Going to see this baseball game will build a better relationship between my brother and I. Also, it will give me the opportunity to see a great (the best) team play. This will be a great experience and one I will never forget.
My favorite player is Gary Sanchez. One of the reasons he is my favorite player is because he is passionate about baseball and takes it very seriously. Gary Sanchez is an inspiration to all types of people, especially Dominicans. He is also from Dominican Republic which is so cool! In conclusion, I would really like to win the Yankee tickets!

Thinking Of My Mom
The reason I would like to go to a Yankee game is because when I went with my mom for the first time she was really happy since it was the first break she really got from work and got to go have some fun. I want to grant my mom that experience again since she loved the time that she went and also that her birthday is soon and I feel like that would be a birthday gift to remember. I'm grateful for all she does for me and I want her to have a great time since she works so hard. Also because I want my mom to have something to take her mind off the two recent deaths that has happened in the past few months. I want to let my mom have fun and take a break that's why I would like to go to the Yankees game.

What This Yankee Game Means To Me
Hello. My name is Angel. I have lived in the Bronx ever since I was born. Sadly I have never been able to go to a Yankee game and now, I have been given the opportunity to go to game, especially for free! What I am currently feeling is very unexplainable. This brings me back to when I was little,when there was a Yankee game on television, I would sit down with my dad on the couch and be amazed by how the ball travels around the field, usually 80-90 miles per hour, and how the players catch the ball and hit it with a bat with very high difficulty. Not only that but I would think to myself, "only if I were able to go to a game..." In the saddest mood possible. I would be very appreciative if you let me go to this baseball game. I might be able to even see my favorite player, Aaron Judge. Thank you very much and let me know soon as possible if I got the tickets. Bye

I Love Yankees
I love the Yankees my favorite player is Gincarlos Stanton. I would love to see the Yankees win on my first game in person. I would love a signed ball of Gincarlos Stanton. I would like to see the Yankees blow the other team 20 0. This would really make my day when I see this on my first game in person. I would like to see the players in person. The Yankees are my favorite team. What I like about the team is that they make the cleanest plays and the hitting is outstanding. I would really appreciate if you guys give me this opportunity to go to my first game in person. This would really mean a lot to me if you guys give me this opportunity to go to my first game in person. It would really mean a lot to me if I get this chance. This would be a dream come true if they win on my first game I go to in person. This would really mean a lot to me and I mean a lot to me.

The New York Yankee!!
My name is Shania, I live in the Bronx and go to Saced Heart School. I have heard so much about the Yankees and the games they have won. Sadly, I haven't been able to attend a Yankee game and would love to experience such fun. My friends would talk and express such joy about how much fun they had at the Yankees game. In so, I would like to experience that myself, and now that I'm given the opportunity. All I can do is express such words to how I badly would love to attend. Going to a Yankee game would mean so much to me because it is something I would experience once in a lifetime. Overall, I would love to attend and experience such a wonderful game played by the actual Yankees! It would mean so much to me that I'll jumpin joy!! Thank you.

Dedicated To My Mother
Hello, I'm Yasmira Cardoze. I currently attend to Sacred Heart School and I am a 8th grader, who will graduate this year. I would love to be able to go to the Yankee Game because to be able to have the opportunity to bring my mother who had never experienced one before. She always wanted to attend to a game but never could due to her health problems in the past, it would be a blessing to bring her to this game. This would mean the world to me to see my mother in happiness and be distracted from her stress as a mother. I will do anything I can to fulfill her wishes because her happiness is important to me and winning this ticket as well. Thank You for taking the time for reading this.
